M/Y Alive is 35 per cent more efficient than any other yacht of her size and 35 per cent less power is needed to produce almost 16 knots top speed in flat sea conditions. In seas with 1-2 metre waves, rather than hindering her performance, the yacht’s Hull Vane® technology converts the movement and generates 20 per cent more thrust and comfort is improved as the pitching is reduced by 40 per cent. Like an aircraft, as the yacht moves through water, the wing produces lift. This patented Hull Vane® technology converts this movement into thrust.
