A new 26 m eco friendly yacht has been launched by Monte Fino, the semi-custom superyacht brand of Kha-Shing Shipyard. The shipyard further added that the yacht is not only economical from fuel consumption point of view but also supports the environment completely.

The 26 m has been designed and named by the Humphreys Yacht Design team. The project has been named ‘ecHo-yacht’, wherein H stands for Humphreys name. The eco- friendly yacht has been specially designed for low emission and minimum carbon foot prints.

The design of the hull and internal layout is already completed now and the company’s European sales team is dealing with a number of interested parties to determine the equipment and internal specification options. Also, a variety of design and technological factors will ensure that the yacht has the lowest running costs and environmental impact.

The eco yacht has been provided with just one engine, along with bow and stern thrusters for maneuvering at low speeds. There is also a small alternative engine that is meant to be used as a generator, however in case of the main engine failure; it can be used for propelling the yacht to the nearest port. Moreover, the hull of the yacht has been designed for providing the lowest resistance in the water. The hull has been constructed from normal GRP for keeping the building costs and weight of the yacht low, however, no compromise has been made on the yacht’s strength and durability. The propulsion system provides the yacht with a cruising speed of 12 knots.

The yacht will also be provided with equipments such as grey-water recycling, waste compaction and high quality insulation for saving energy needed for heating and cooling the yacht. The first model of the eco yacht is expected to be completed and delivered by 2011.
