Swiss yacht builder Adler has revealed details about its new 25.25m flagship yacht, the Suprema XL, expanding its range of carbon-fibre hybrid yachts. Part of a range that is meant to combine automotive, aviation and marine technology, the vessel embodies Italian style with German and Austrian technological expertise.
The Suprema XL features a HMS hybrid-power system, which, according to the engineering team, saves 50% on fuel when compared to a conventional system.
Speaking to Boat International at the recent Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Philipp Pototschnik, CEO of the company said, “We want to keep the carbon fibre for this size because you lose a lot of weight, you gain a lot of stiffness, and also you have a very nice looking touch.”
Interior accommodation will be available on board for up to eight guests across four en-suite cabins on the lower deck, including a full-beam amidships owner’s cabin. Crew quarters for a staff of two will be accessible via the cockpit.
Some of the key features of flagship Suprema XL are her large swim platform, her under-floor heating on the lower deck, her full-screen home cinema with Internet connection, and saloon windows that can be transformed from clear to opaque glass for increased privacy.
For social interactions, there is a circular dining table for up to six guests and a bar area with extensive seating on the sundeck, protected by a carbon-fibre bimini.
The yacht’s air-conditioning, heating, lighting and curtains can be managed when on or off board the yacht through an iPad.
Power comes from a hybrid power system made up of two electric motors, two Caterpillar C18 engines, two battery banks and a pair of carbon-fibre propellers.
At top speed the vessel can reach up to 30 knots while full electric mode allows for more economic silent cruising at speeds of up to 11 knots.
Designed by Nuvolari Lenard studio, the Suprema XL yacht is scheduled for delivery in 2019.
