Thrane brothers want to sell luxury yachts

Thrane brothers want to sell luxury yachts

11-06-2015 08:00:00


Knud E. Hansen has designed two environmentally friendly luxury yachts for Lars Thrane and Per Blinkenberg-Thrane. The two brothers have realized that there is a market for this kind of luxury yachts, and therefore they have plans to start selling these types of ships. So far they have established Poseidon Shipbuilding, which owns all rights to the design.

"The ships sail three times farther on a liter of diesel than the normal motor boats, which we already have. Generally there's a focus on these ships' fuel consumption. People in Cannes look down on large yachts that are moored in a cloud of smoke," says Per Blinkenberg-Thrane.

The two luxury yachts, as the Thrane brothers have ordered, are hybrid ships, which means diesel engines combined with batteries. The battery makes it possible to sail quietly into a marina and maneuver around the harbor on batteries only, and at low speeds the ships can sail with just one engine because the batteries contribute to the propulsion of the ship.

Poseidon Shipbuilding has the right to have sister ships to the hybrid yachts built by any yard. The company will act as sales agency in the future, whose buyers want to acquire an environmentally friendly luxury yacht.

Jens Harrsen, senior naval architect Knud E. Hansen, talks about the ships:

"The ships are designed to be as green as possible. They have equipment for wastewater treatment, development of drinking water and batteries so they can sail quietly and without polluting in ports. The Thrane brothers have been very special customers. They asked for detailed requirements, which has been a great and very exciting challenge for us," he says.

The two luxury yachts will have room for up to 12 people on board.
