WhisperPower and Rainbow win ShowBoats Design and Technology Award

26-07-2013

The WhisperPower high-tech propulsion system on J-Class yacht Rainbow has been awarded the top design and technology prize at the Showboats Design Awards 2013 held last month during a ceremony in Monte Carlo.

Following a unanimous decision, the WhisperPower system onboard of SY Rainbow was announced as the winner of the Design and Technology category. This hybrid power and propulsion solution meets the power and space needs of a modern J-Class project.

It has been developed to be low weight, provide electric propulsion and achieve significant energy storage whether racing, cruising or at anchor. The WhisperPower System is 40% lighter than a standard genset concept and over a 6 month analysis, reduced Rainbow's fuel consulting by 35%.

Various additional design and functionality features contribute to the success of this system:

Now in its fourth year, the annual Showboats Design Awards honor and recognize the creative and innovative design talents across the Superyacht Industry. This year's ceremony, held at the Monaco Opera house, saw designers, stylists, naval architects and innovators receive recognition for their work on super yachts launched in 2012 with winners being presented with the coveted golden Neptune award.
