DLBA Naval Architects unveiled the 45m hybrid explorer yacht 7-OCEANS.

7-OCEANS is a fast explorer yacht with speeds up to 25 knots and a cruising speed of 16 knots. The hybrid propulsion meets the IMO TIER IV requirements to explore restricted areas. All-LED lighting reduces energy consumption. Moreover, the interior has no old-growth hardwood but bamboo to reduce the carbon footprint.

Instead of sat doms, the yacht will have flat-panel satellite antennas to reduce the weight in the mast. This improves the roll stability.
