Kingship Progress with 44m 'Green Voyager'

Kingship Marine from China and Axis Group Yacht Design from Viareggio, Italy have teamed up to build the 44m (144ft) 'Green Voyager' project which is making fast progress as seen in the above image. Green Voyager is a revolutionary new design concept that would be perfect for an owner who wishes to travel in luxurious comfort in a highly efficient yacht.

The efficiency of this Superyacht comes from its distinctive plumb (vertical) bow. The bow extends the waterline length until it is only 50cm shorter than the yachts overall length, thus producing a very low underwater drag. Kingship Marine have confirmed from tank testing that this hull shape uses minimum fuel consumption and offers an increase in propulsion efficiency of 16-18%. Due to this she will have an excellent cruising performance at a speed of 16kts.

Green Voyagers design connects owners and guests to the environment by the use of light and full glass sliding doors in the sky lounge, main saloon and dining area. Guests will have a great sense of space by Green Voyager bringing the outdoors inside. You can see in the image below the large floor to ceiling sliding doors on either side.

One of her main features is the large lounge seating area on the front of the upper deck, a rarity for a yacht of this size. She will be able to accommodate a total of 10 guests in 5 cabins which include the owners full beam master cabin which has his and her bathrooms and located forward on the main deck. The other 2 double and 2 twin cabins all en suite are located amidships on the lower deck. Green Voyager is scheduled for launch in late 2013.

'Green Voyager is a new conception with high efficiency, environmentally friendly yacht with an innovative design, you get both the benefits of both a modern and traditional Superyacht'.
