The all-new, carbon-fiber, aggressively-styled Adler Suprema Hybrid will make her U.S. debut at the Fort Lauderdale show, starting Nov. 1. The 76-foot yacht, designed by Nuvolari-Lenard, is powered by a diesel-electric propulsion system that includes carbon-fiber props, twin 100kW e-engines and twin Cat 1,150-hp diesels. It can run up to 8 knots under electric power, and it tops out at 28 knots under diesel.
“It’s a unique yacht with a sophisticated design and a number of modern features usually found on much bigger boats, such as state-of-the-art hybrid propulsion, iPad controls, heated floors and a strong, lightweight and efficient hull made from carbon,” said Philipp Pototschnik, the CEO of Swiss-based Adler Yacht.
Using a Hybrid Marine Solutions power system designed by German and Austrian engineers, the Adler can run an hour at 8 knots in a totally electric mode. In a hybrid mode, the company says it has a range of 3,500 nm at 8 knots.
The semi-custom yacht can be ordered with three to five staterooms, plus a two-person crew cabin. In the three-cabin version, the full-beam master is midships and includes a walk-in wardrobe closet and an en suite head. The two guest cabins, also with en suite heads, are in the bow and stern.
Aside from its hybrid propulsion, the Adler Suprema has quite a few head-turning features. One is the iPad control system where the owner can monitor and change the yacht’s systems, even when he’s not on board. Then there’s the privacy feature, where you can change the clear glass windows into opaque glass panels at the touch of a button. For comfort, the boat has under-floor heating on the main deck and in the heads. And finally, there are chilled cup holders to keep the drinks fresh.
