New Model: Greenline 70 Ocean Class

The second model from Greenline who after launching the much praised 33 Hybrid goes to more the double size presenting the 70 Ocean Class.  Greenline is part of the Slovenian Seaway Group, and the 70 Ocean Class is in my understanding the hybrid more Eco friendly version of the Skagen 70 with some little differences in the exterior.  A patented hull named Superdisplacement along with optional Lithium powered electric engine with range for twenty nautical miles are part of the new Greenline large explorer yacht package.  You can also have an optional hard top which will feature a solar panel and give three kw of electricity during sun time.  But apart some green features which are optional, standard equipment should be quite generous and also offer ABT Trac stabilizers.  The interior is more looking to that of a standard motor yacht plan then for an Explorer Trawler type vessel with living on the main deck having saloon, galley, dining and helm, and below dedicated to the cabins.  The standard lower deck plan is a double three cabins layout with owners stateroom located to midships, plus a two berth crew cabin to aft.  An optional four cabins version should be presented later on.  Standard power is from twin 800hp engines which give a 22 knots top speed, and 19 knots of cruise.  But Greenline says that at lower speeds a transatlantic range should be possible.
