M/Y Alive with Hull Vane®

Equipped with under water foil (technically called Hull Vane®) M/Y Alive represents a dramatic advancement in performance. The sub-sea wing harnesses waves to produce power; this combined with the fast displacement hull and conventional diesel engines produce remarkable results. This has been proven during independent research conducted by Van Oossanen Naval Architects at two of the world’s most respected hydrodynamic laboratories: Wolfson Unit and Marin.
