FDHF, developed by Dutch naval architects Van Oossanen and Associates, offers low resistance which significantly improves fuel efficiency. This means that ocean-crossing range can be achieved with minimal fuel; 45,000 litres is plenty for the YN 16750 to span the Atlantic and have enough in reserve.
The impressive fuel efficiency of YN 16750 means less fuel needs to be carried. This extra space has been reallocated to give the crew increased storage under the crew mess. Furthermore, less fuel on board means she’s lighter which also helps to reduce fuel consumption.
“The design of YB 16750 proves that high speed cruising can be achieved without sacrificing either luxury or efficiency,” a spokesman said in a statement.
The all-aluminum explorer yacht will be custom-built for delivery in 2015.
