74Isea&iISPRING-SUMMER 2010KingshipWaving the eco flag for China, Kingship has developed a unique,environmentally-aware superyacht. According to the yard, the45m (148') Green Voyager was designed for an owner who seeksa low-impact motoryacht on which to cruise the oceansresponsibly, yet without compromising luxury and comfort. The designers of the yacht, Axis Group Yacht Design, havethus developed a yacht with strong, masculine lines andinnovative features, such as a large lounging area on theforedeck, a fixed awning over the sundeck (which is equippedwith sophisticated automated blinds), and large sliding doorsin the main saloon, opening up to folding bulwarks. Green Voyager will be able to comfortably accommodate upto 10 guests. The full-width master is located forward on themain deck and features large windows and a private balcony;perfect for coffee or an intimate dinner. On the lower deck, fourspacious guest cabins comprise two twin cabins and twodoubles. The yacht will be offered with three differentpropulsion and generator packages:nConventionalusing conventional generators and mainengines, but of a smaller size than on a regular yacht. nSemi-hybridusing conventional propulsion but fitted withhigh-tech battery banks and a power- management system toallow silent overnight operation.nFull hybridusing shaft generators and the Siemens Sishipsystem to allow silent running on batteries when under way.The foundation of Green Voyager's lowered environmentalimpact is compliance with RINA's Green Class notation. Thisdemands specific technical and operational systems to ensurethe superyacht's build and functionality is in excess of MARPOLand other regulatory requirements.This tri-deck Kingship features a full displacement steel hullwith transoceanic range and an aluminium superstructure, andshe will be built to Lloyd's and MCA requirements. She isexpected to be launched in 2011. Wave of changeSuperyachts have always been anexceptional way to explore the world, butall too often this is at a cost to theenvironment. Pollution, fuel and waste havea significant impact and the conscientiousyachtsman has long battled to reconcilehis passion for sailing with his regard for theenvironment. Thankfully, with leading yardsbringing eco issues to the fore, certainluxury superyachts are now getting the'green' light when it comes toenvironmentally aware design.
