Greenline Launches Eco-Friendly NEO Line with Twin Gas or Electric Outboards: 42 Knots or 16 Knots

Greenline Yachts is celebrating its tenth anniversary by creating a new NEO line, which consists of three deck plans for a 36’ 5” eco-friendly boat that can be powered either by twin 300-hp gas outboards or twin Torqueedo electric outboards and Lithium-ion batteries. With the big gas outboards, the NEO cruises at 36 knots and tops out at 42 knots. With twin 80-hp Torqueedo Deep Blue electric outboards, the NEO tops out at 16 knots with a range of 20 nm; at 6 knots, it has a range of 40 nm.

Made in Slovenia, the NEO line comes in Open, Hard Top (in the rendering above), or Coupe versions. The Open and Hardtop have the same deck layout. A large U-shaped settee is aft and another social space with seating and a small table is in the bow. Below is a dinette with a filler that can convert to a double bed. A head with shower is separate. The Coupe version comes with an enclosed upper salon with a larger galley and full-height fridge/freezer. Below, the Coupe has a generous cabin with twin berths and a head with shower. All three models have four forward-facing seats at the helm.

All the boats have an innovative swim platform. Greenline says it’s the largest swim platform ever produced for an outboard-powered boat. The outboards are mounted on the transom with the swim platform extending aft. A hydraulic lift raises or lowers the platform for easy access to the boat and to the water.

Greenline will launch the NEO line in time for the fall boat shows in Europe, and for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in the U.S. starting Oct. 31.

We don’t have a complete spec sheet yet, but the NEO is 36 ’5” long with an 11’ 4” beam, 2’ 4” draft, and 10,141-pound displacement.
