Brand New Fast Displacement Heesen Hybrid

Heesen 50m Fast Displacement Hybrid.

The exterior of Nova is designed by Omega Architects and it’s Heesen's first yacht with hybrid propulsion. In this case ‘Hybrid’ means that the yacht can draw on two sources of power for propulsion: diesel mechanical and diesel electrical. Either or both sources can be used at the same time : diesel mechanical and diesel electrical. Either or both sources can be used at the same time. This provides more flexible power management, which means better efficiency, less noise and less vibration.

Nova is all about fuel efficiency and comfort. Her lightweight aluminium hull form offers superlative performance and efficiency in a luxurious design package of under 500GT. Add a striking superstructure, vertical bow and spacious aft platform with a wide staircase leading to the main deck, and this yacht is a cut above others in her class.Nova has a transatlantic range of 3,750 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. Her top speed of 16.5 knots is remarkable for a displacement yacht of her size.

The hybrid propulsion operates near-silent in electric mode. Moreover, Nova achieves lower fuel consumption and a higher top speed when 
the diesel engines and electric motors are combined.The efficient hull form allowed the Heesen engineers to install smaller engines that use less space. This means lower fuel consumption without compromising performance and leaves more room to enjoy the yacht to her fullest. Nova is a high performance, supremely comfortable displacement yacht with reduced environmental impact.

The best of both worlds.
