Even yacht designers are considering ways to make their products more eco-friendly.
Greenline Hybrid is a Slovenian builder of hybrid yachts dedicated to “maximizing your well-being on board” while “paying respect to the environment,” according to its website. More recently, Greenline Hybrid unveiled four hybrid yachts at Miami’s premier yacht show, Yachts Miami Beach.
Scroll down for a closer look at the yachts:
1. The Greenline 33 is, as the name suggests, a 33-foot-long yacht. Greenline has sold 300 versions of the yacht in 28 countries since beginning production in 2010.
At a flip of a switch, you can dictate whether the yacht runs on diesel or electricity. When running on electricity, the yacht as a electric sailing range of 20 nautical miles (23 miles). It also comes with solar panels to help recharge the battery.
The yacht as a maximum range of 700 nautical miles and a maximum cruising speed of 18 knots (220 hp) when running on diesel.
2. The Greenline 36 is a 36-foot-long yacht with an updated design based on feedback from Greenline 33 owners. For example, the hull is designed to better reduce drag.
Like the Greenline 33, the 36 also comes with solar panels to help recharge the battery. Greenline Yachts did not divulge its electric sailing range, but said it comes with a 7.2 kWh battery.
3. The Greenline 40 yacht is a 40-foot-yacht that, like the Greenline 33, has an electric cruising range of 20 nautical miles (23 miles.) It also comes with solar panels to help re-charge the battery.
Although it's slightly larger than the first two yachts on this list, the Greenline 40 only has one bedroom and a large saloon.
