Comfortable and efficient cruising, to the sound of silence

A sleek design with a shallow draft, Electra is a highly fuel efficient yacht designed for living. The second in the award-winning 5000 FHDF hybrid class, she possesses a flowing layout that invites the outdoors in. Marrying performance with low fuel consumption, she combines the ultra-efficient Fast Displacement Hull Form with

Heesen’s advanced hybrid solution. Offering both diesel mechanical and diesel electrical propulsion, either source can be used independently or simultaneously, providing less noise, less vibration and more flexible power management. As innovative as she is inspiring, to cruise on board Electra is to glide on water.

First impressions

Sharp exterior lines and Heesen’s progressive engineering give her excellent seakeeping capabilities, even when carving through rough waters.

Step aboard

Elegantly designed floor-to-ceiling windows offer unparalleled views. The use of mirrors inside the main saloon cleverly provides a sense of space and a unique connection to the outdoors.
