M/Y Alive reached the remarkable maximum speed of 16.4 knots, exceeding the contractual speed by 0.5 knots!

The contractual fuel consumption prediction proved to be correct: 4000nm at 12 knots. Over 750 miles come free of charge thanks to her remarkably frugal fuel consumption, that is 30 per cent less than on a conventional displacement yacht.

This is an important achievement and statement for this Dutch shipyard, as M/Y Alive is the first luxury vessel equipped with Hull Vane®.

The Hull Vane® is an under water foil that harnesses waves to produce power; this in combination with the Fast Displacement Hull Form and conventional diesel engines produces remarkable results. Proven during independent research conducted by Van Oossanen Naval Architects at two of the world’s most respected hydrodynamic laboratories — Wolfson Unit and Marin — it is today confirmed at sea.
