TheItalian Design and Engineering Company, Axis Group Yacht Design has announced the completion of the steel hull and aluminum superstructure of the 44-meter (144-foot) motoryacht Green Voyager. Designed by Horacio Bozzo and engineered byAxis Group Yacht Design, the construction is progressing well at the Kingship Shipyard in Zhongshan, China, where the yard recently launched the 42-meter (138-foot) motoryacht Star. The hull is an advanced displacement type with a twin-curve vertical stem. This particular geometry diminishes flow pressure disturbances on the forward shoulders of the underwater body, reducing wave-making resistance. Its bow shape, with deep and narrow forward sections, also limits slamming in seaway and allows a soft passage through waves. It also helps decrease overall resistance, increase speed and improve fuel efficiency. Green Voyager’s delivery is planned for 2013.
