Greenline Yachts-Press Release-Greenline NEO
We are proud to announce the launch of the first sub 10 m day cruiser with the ability to choose from a standard double outboard gasoline engines and a full electric drive. Greenline Yachts have always been the trendsetter in the power boat segment starting with the first ever production yachts with hybrid propulsion – Greenline 33 in 2008.“Back in 2008 hybrid propulsion was perhaps a bit ahead of it’s time“, admitted Mr. VladimirZinchenko, who recently acquired Greenline Yachts brand and production facilities in Slovenia “but now, after 10 years the market is ready for the next step – to go full electric!”
NEO represents a milestone in Greenline’s strategy and shows the commitment to the existing philosophy of environmentally friendly yachting, using eDrive technology, and to commute swiftly using outboard engines that are new for Greenline Yachts range at the same time.
NEO eDrive will be equipped with twin 80 hp Torqeedo Deep Blue electric outboards and dual 30.5 kWh (totalling 61 kWh) high performance lithium batteries allowing maximum range of 40 NM at 6 kts economic speed. At full throttle NEO eDrive will reach a top speed of 16 kts with the range of 20 NM.
Range extender is available to compliment NEO’s eDrive in order to ensure a safe return in case the owner is having too much fun navigating in silence.
For the more traditional clients and for those who enjoy speeds above 40 knots, Greenline NEO will be available with twin petrol outboard engines with max power 300 hp enabling NEO to cruise at 36kts and reaching staggering 42 kts top speed.
The way we use boats has changed in the past years. Accompanied by advanced technologies and in-depth studies NEO has been designed from the ground up by close cooperation with J&J Design.
In order to make it equally attractive for different markets and climates we designed NEO to be available in three basic versions: Coupe, Hard Top and Open.
Open and Hard Top share the same deck arrangements with generous social area aft and in the bow whereas Coupe offers remarkable salon area with excellent 360 visibility, fully functional galley equipped with full height fridge/freezer combo and an innovative access to the bow sun-pad.
Following the signature features that represent the Greenline Yachts DNA, NEO is all about comfort and convenience onboard, be that only for a few hour joyride with friends, or on a longer cruise with your loved ones.
NEO is defined by it’s unique bathing platform which is the largest platform ever introduced on any outboard engine powered boat. It features a unique hydraulic lifting mechanism for the platform, which is surrounding the engines making it much larger than on any competitor in the outboard class. The adaptable stairs connecting the platform and the cockpit are integrated into the platform itself ensuring a safe and comfortable passage at any height of the platform.
The cockpit features a generous U-shaped seating area with a wet bar making it a perfect place to relax or entertain your friends and family. The helmsman’s position features a comfortable bench with room enough for two guests and helmsman to enjoy the ride and appreciate the visibility and ergonomics of the dashboard.
In addition to the cockpit entertaining area, there is an intimate U shaped bow lounge area just above the cabin accessible via a unique passage through the windshield to port. Following the Greenline Yachts One Level Living concept there is only one step to overcome from the cockpit to the bow also making it safe and effortless to bring up the mooring line in case of stern-to Mediterranean docking.
Greenline NEO can host up to unprecedented 16 guests, 11 of which are able to face forward during navigation which represents a uniquely comfortable and safe feeling while piercing through the waves.
NEO Coupe features a full size cabin down below with an “island” double berth or optional Greenline’s signature “scissor” berths together with surprisingly spacious head compartment and ample wardrobe and storage space.
Open and Hard Top versions also share the cabin layout with the separate toilet compartment and a V-shaped settee with a table that can be transformed into a double berth.
Choosing from broad range of interior upholstery fabric options and colors including furniture wood each NEO can be an individual of its own and a pride and joy of it’s owner.
The Future is NEO
NEO represents an important step in the Greenline Yachts development. Although quite different to the rest of Greenline range, NEO still holds true to the core values of Greenline Yachts which is comfort and convenience. With NEO we are trying to bring comfortable boating to younger generations who are more and more environmentally conscious and like to have fun at the same time.
