5. The Hessen Project Nova Hybrid
Hessen is a name that’s quite respected within the yacht industry, and their Project Nova Hybrid was one of the more eloquent superyacht concepts seen at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show. This shipbuilder from the Netherlands has produced some of the more interesting yacht designs within the last decade, and the Project Nova Hybrid is no exception. It is a 164-foot vessel that is poised to be one of the more environmentally friendly superyachts, as it uses a hybrid propulsion system. Hessen boasts that the yacht will only consume just 22 gallons of fuel each hour while its operating. Compared to other yachts in this class, it is extremely efficient. The vessel will have six-staterooms in total, and the interiors are extremely luxurious and comfortable. The Project Nova Hybrid will be able to hit speeds of 16.3 knots and can travel some 3,750 nautical miles in total. Hessen has already confirmed that they are producing this yacht, and it should launch sometime in 2017.
