Steeler receives ‘green’ light for full electric 18M motoryacht

The start production of Steeler’s first full electric motoryacht is a fact ! After an extensive pre-design study with Vripack and our suppliers, the ‘green’ light was given by the Norwegian client. The motoryacht will named “North LatÉtude” referring to the future cruising area and the electric propulsion.

This 60 ft motoryacht will be built in steel and features three decks, a novelty in this size, generating an amazing volume of living accommodation. The main deck and upperdeck have a well known Steeler signature, as they are single level from bow to stern. The lower deck is reserved for two guestrooms.

The electrical system has been designed by Hydrosta. The propulsion will be provided by a water cooled permanent magnet electrical engine powered by 184 kW of Lithium Ion batteries. A 75 kW variable speed generator is available for long distance cruises. The efficiency of the propulsion system is far superior to a diesel engine, not only when driving full electric but also when the generator kicks in.  DNVGL approval is pending for this system, that represents state-of-the-art in green yachting.
