This New 154-Foot Hybrid Explorer Concept Was Inspired by the Bizarre Tetrosomus Fish, reports RobbReport.
Green Yachts has recently revealed a new 154-foot “biomimetic” explorer yacht that takes indications from the Tetrosomus fish.
Tetrosomus is also called a camel cowfish because of the hump on its dorsal keel, which has a powerful exoskeleton to protect it against the pressure of the deep sea. It’s this very characteristic that motivated the Tetrosomus idea.
The vessel is developed in collaboration with Cheyenne Yachts and cuts angular silhouettes like its muse with a strong bow to slash through waves.
The outermost parts are developed from steel to safeguard the inner parts made of aluminium. The aft of the vessel varies relying on which of the two versions someone chooses.
Ushuaia displays a high stern for additional security, whereas Capri is furnished with a lower stern to better connect you with the surrounding environment.
The main deck has a salon, a dining room, and a full-beam owner’s cabin, while the lower deck spotlights four guest cabins. The upper deck also has a personal salon with an outdoor dining room.
Tetrosomus is powered by a hybrid propulsion system and guarantees a cruising speed of 10.5 knots and a top speed of 15 knots. Moreover, it has a “zero-emission” mode to not disturb the fish in protected marine areas or contaminate the waters.
Tetrosomus starts at roughly $19.5 million and will be built by Cheyenne Yachts.
