De Antonio Yachts launches its new e-hybrid
De Antonio Yachts and Cupra have launched their new D28 Formentor e-hybrid, continuing their collaboration. This design integrates two 15kw retractable electric motors in the powertrain developed by BlueNav, which, together with the 400hp Mercury concealed outboard engine, is said to offer a hybrid system that allows the boat to run in both combustion and fully electric mode.
The bank of up to six batteries gives it a range in electric mode of up to 12 miles, with about two hours of sailing at a cruising speed of 6 knots and a top speed of 8 knots. The collaborators says its ‘safety’ is provided by the 400hp gasoline outboard motor for navigation in open sea, adverse conditions and long distances and a combined range of almost 200 miles.
This new presentation strengthens the relationship between the two brands, whose first collaboration resulted last year in the D28 Formentor. With the development of the hybrid version, both companies say it reinforces their commitment to innovation and progress towards more environmentally friendly vehicles both on land and at sea.
