The pioneers in hybrid propulsion

Princ Albert of Monaco testing Greenline NEO EDrive

This Year’s Monaco Yacht Show was marked as a step further towards sustainable boating. Greenline Yachts presented their new NEO EDrive – first ever production leisure craft to be powered by electric propulsion that was endorsed by His Serene Highness Princ Albert, a great ambassador of green energy and environment preservation. The boat could have easily been overlooked among those great big megayachts if the Prince himself was not at the wheel. Not just because of NEO’s small size comparred to those big megayachts but also because of the silence of NEO’s engines. Sometimes there are more important things than size and NEO flipped the ecological middle finger to all diesel-powered mega yachts that consume hundreds of liters of diesel per hour.

NEO EDrive was endorsed by His Serene Highness Princ Albert, a great ambassador of green energy and environment preservation

One of world’s fiercest ambassadors of environment preservation and clean energy, HSH Prince Albert, who drove to the altar in a hybrid car seven years ago and brought Formula E into Monaco, is now subsidising electrically powered vehicles to the people of Monaco up to 30%. ‘The challenge is ahead of us for each of us to do what is in our power to counteract climate change. The future is green’, commented Prince Albert knowing this also applies to boating, endorsing the new Greenline NEO EDrive by taking a quick ride in the NEO EDrive during the Yacht Show and scheduling sea trials at Royal Yacht Club de Monaco later in October.
