28 January 2021By Malcolm MacLean A new-build 72 metre expedition yacht has been sold by Dutch yard Damen Yachting with the buyer introduced by Burgess.
With exterior and interior design by Michael Leach Design, she is scheduled for delivery in early 2024 and will explore the world with a hugely capable platform featuring hybrid propulsion for zero-emission cruising and accommodation for 12 guests.
The rugged ocean-going vessel will be powered by a highly efficient power and propulsion configuration. In addition to the two main engines, she will have PTO/PTI hybrid electrical drives that are suitable for running at up to 8 knots. She will have significant on-board battery power for normal use including silent nights at anchor without generator power. The stored power can be increased with containerised battery packs for extended zero-emission silent cruising in fragile marine eco-systems. 72m new-build Damen custom hybrid expedition yacht sold A spacious interior features a dedicated owners deck, a VIP suite and generous areas for guest entertainment, while a touch & go helipad allows for convenient access.

We are dedicated to developing more efficient propulsion and power management solutions for our clients, which are underpinned by an environmentally sensitive mind-set. We are proud to be at the forefront of a new breed of luxury expedition vessels and this highly innovative new project embodies this approach.”
