ECO POWERCAT 495


Our all new ECO POWERCAT 495 will be capable of crossing the Atlantic with its optional long range tanks. We are aiming for a 3000 NM range and that is plenty enough for the trip from for instance the Canary Islands to St Lucia.

The build of  ECO POWERCAT 495 / GREEN-MOTION started late 2010 and launch is expected 2012.

Design and construction
This slender and spacious ECO POWERCAT with an aerodynamic design by Simonis Voogd offers extreme efficiency in the speeds between 7 and 12 knots and has ocean crossing capability. Between 2 and 4 king sized bed cabins including bathroom are available. She is being built in epoxy thru resin infusion with basalt fiber for hull and deck, carbon fiber optional (displacement minus 700 kilo / 1540 lbs), saloon roof and bimini in carbon fiber, Twaron/Kevlar impact protection in the hulls.

Consumption
The expected fuel consumption for this spacious Eco PowerCat is between 4 and 12 litres per hour depending on the engine size in diesel version. Hybrid ECO POWERCAT GREEN-MOTION version is powered by 2 x 18 KW electric motors and a 23 kW high efficient diesel generator. The Green-Motion, fossil free retractable propulsion and generation system for yachts, version has a transcontinental range.
