Greenline, the innovative Slovenian builder, has launched its new flagship, a 68 OceanClass cruiser. The latest OceanClass yacht, the 68 offers a combination of diesel, hybrid or all-electric power in a three-stateroom, three-head yacht built for comfortable cruising anywhere in the world.
The Greenline fleet now has eight models, starting at 33 feet. The new 68 is aimed at experienced cruisers who are looking for comfort, quality and ecologically responsible boating.
In its basic diesel mode, the 68 OceanClass is driven by two 850-hp Cats, delivering a top speed of 22 knots. With optional 1,150-hp Cats, the top speed is 29 knots. Greenline says its goal with the Cats is “to provide the most responsible diesel boating solution available.”
In the hybrid mode, power comes from two 60kW electric motors, giving the boat a range of 15 nm at 5 knots and a top speed 8 knots.
In a fully electric mode, two 100 kW electric motors deliver the power, producing a range of 25 nm at 7 knots, top speed of 12 knots.
There’s also a range extender mode that works with two 25kW diesel generators to deliver a range of 1,000 nm.
In the anchor mode, power for all the boat’s systems comes from solar panels mounted on the flybridge rooftop, developing 15kW for storage in 129kWh lithium batteries. The boat can spend two days at anchor under solar/battery power.
Aside from its creative power solutions, the Greenline 68 is a luxurious cruiser. The salon offers 360-degree visibility from windows all around. The helm station, with a captain’s seat, is on the starboard side. To port is a U-shaped lounge with a table, facing two arm chairs and a table to starboard. The galley is aft to port, with an L-shaped dinette to starboard.
Large glass doors open to the aft deck, which is protected by the overhang from the flybridge above. A large settee is aft, facing a table and five occasional chairs. The teak swim platform can be lowered for water sports. It’s large enough to hold several sun lounges or a good-sized RIB.
At the other end of the boat, there’s a four-person bench seat at the base of the cabin, plus a large, luxurious sun lounge area on the foredeck.
Up top, the flybridge is set aft, with a helm seat for two on the port side, and a U-shaped lounge and table to starboard. A boat deck is aft.
On the accommodations deck, the master stateroom is full-beam amidships, with a king-sized bed. Large windows in the hull sides admit lots of natural light. The VIP stateroom is forward, also with large windows. The third cabin, with two beds, is on the starboard side. All three cabins have en suite heads. A two-person crew cabin with its own head is all the way aft.
