The ABS-classed 64m motor yacht Atomic has been launched by the Italian shipyard VSY.
The vessel incorporates environmental systems and programs to reduce environmental impact and allow navigation in protected marine areas.
Atomic is equipped with a dynamic positioning system designed to minimize the impact on the seabed when anchoring as well as, exhaust gas cleaning systems and four 200 kW generators to power the diesel electric thrusters, allowing navigation under electric propulsion without starting the main engine.
“ABS has a record of supporting innovations in yacht design all over the globe and I am proud to say the Atomic can now be added to that list,” said Daniele Bottino, ABS Manager, Business Development. “Not only is ABS one of the leading class organizations for the global yacht fleet but we have extensive experience in advancing the latest in sustainable technologies and addressing industry’s most pressing environmental challenges.”
“The yacht integrates leading-edge environmental systems and programs to reduce environmental impact and allow navigation in protected marine areas, for which VSY has become a reference point in the market. This approach has fully satisfied the yacht’s owner wishes who intends to cruise in remote areas of the world in a spirit of respect for the environment and marine life,” said Francesco Bono, yacht’s Project Manager at VSY.
VSY’s policy is to minimize the environmental footprint of its vessels throughout their construction and operational life.
