Heesen delivers Project Nova

M/Y Home, formerly Project Nova, a 164-foot (50m) Heesen motor yacht, was delivered to her owner in international waters on July 1 after five days of sea trials in the North Sea. She is the world’s first fast displacement yacht equipped with hybrid propulsion, according to Heesen.

The aluminium, 500GT yacht with two 127kW water-cooled DC electric shaft motors exceeded the contractual maximum speed of 16.3 knots in the traditional diesel engine mode, as well as the predicted speed of 9 knots in her hybrid “silent cruising mode,” Heesen reported. Her fuel consumption of 98 litres per hour (excluding generators) at 12 knots in diesel mode dropped to 45 litres per hour at 10 knots in hybrid mode.

Home will début at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
