Kingship, a shipyard based in China, has announced the construction of a 44-meter long eco-friendly superyacht called the Green Voyager.

The design of the new yacht was officially presented at the Singapore Superyacht Conference.

According to the Chinese shipyard, the Green Voyager was designed with the goal of setting new environmental and efficiency standards.

It is worth mentioning that the superyacht was designed by specialists from the Axis Group Yacht Design.

The yacht is powered by a hybrid propulsion system. The latter runs on electric engines (powered by lithium iron phosphate battery pack) and diesel.

The Green Voyager is expected to show an unprecedentedly low level of greenhouse gas emissions. It will be able to reach a top speed of 16knots and a cruising speed of 13.5knots.
