Sanlorenzo launches electric hybrid range at boot Düsseldorf

Italian yard Sanlorenzo has announced a new range of hybrid and diesel electric yachts called E Motion at boot Düsseldorf 2018.

The first models to launch will be a pair of 27-metre (89-foot) Sanlorenzo SL86 E Motion yachts, which are due to hit the water in May 2018 and December 2018 respectively. However, the yard plans to introduce this technology to its entire collection, culminating in 2020 with the launch of the Sanlorenzo 62 Steel E Motion (pictured).

Tilli Antonelli, who played an integral part in the development of the E Motion range, commented, “The new era for yachting is now. Diesel electric and full electric power systems are a strong reality today.”

Key benefits of the hybrid system include greater safety at sea due to increased redundancy of electric systems, greater fuel efficiency, lower vibration levels for greater comfort, and roomier interiors, as the E Motion system consumes much less space in the engine room.

It will see Sanlorenzo’s small fibreglass models powered by a combination of diesel engines and electric motors, while the larger Sanlorenzo Superyachts range of displacement yachts will be kitted out with an electric motor driven by four variable-speed generators, Lithium-ion batteries or a combination of the two.

Sanlorenzo is also teaming with unnamed “strategic partners” to develop a range of fully electric superyacht tenders as well.
