HJB has launched the J-class yacht Rainbow, which is based upon the lines of the 1934 America’s Cup winner drawn by William Starling Burgess in the early 1930s. This spectacular 40-meter “J” features a high-end superyacht interior and a unique hybrid propulsion and power system inside a racing-boat hull, topped off by a grand prix racing deck and rig. Rainbow can be operated entirely on her Hystore lithium-ion batteries, allowing a dramatic reduction of the ecological footprint and a 30-percent reduction in the fuel requirement for the hotel load. The project’s naval architects were Dykstra Naval Architects.
