Slovenia’s Greenline Yachts has announced the launch a new model, the 45 Coupe.
The Greenline 45 Coupe, which will make its official debut at boot Dusseldorf in January 2021, is based on the hull, drivetrain and layout of the Greenline 45 Fly. An electric sunroof with a reduced air draught makes it well-suited to cruising on inland waterways as well as offshore.
Installed on the roof are up to nine panels, providing up to 2.7kW, which on a sunny day can produce a charge of over 16kWh – more than enough to run the boat with four people on board without resorting to a generator.
Sharing its DNA with the 45 Fly, the Coupe boasts naval architecture by J&J Design and an interior by Italian Marco Casali of Too Design. As well as a range of twin shaftdrive engine options with or without Hybrid Drive, the boat is available with Volvo Penta IPS600 (twin 440hp) for a top speed of 30 knots.
Luca Raumland, head of sales and marketing, says: “This has been a challenging time for the business, but we have used it productively. We have taken the time to improve our hybrid technology and bolster our position as a builder of responsible boats.
“We have also streamlined our working practices with dealer meetings, sales training and customer viewings taking place online,” he adds. “As a business we are ready to embrace a new, more sustainable way of working in tandem with building the most responsible motoryachts on the water.”
Grenline Yachts is keen to stress that it has slowed, not stopped, production during the current pandemic and every order has been honoured despite the disruption. It says its commitment to using local suppliers in order to reduce its carbon footprint paid dividends here. With most parts coming from within Slovenia, production could keep running during the pandemic.
Fortunately, the Slovenian authorities acted swiftly to contain the virus and declared the end of the country’s epidemic in May, meaning Greenline could focus on driving recovery and what the next few months will hold for the brand.Learn more about the Greenline 45 Coupe
