The Shipyard Amer Yachts Permare, in collaboration with Volvo Penta, has "dared" to install a revolutionary layout engine system with 2 IPS 1350 for the first time on a pleasure superyacht which permits a decrease of consumption and noise emission with more comfort.

Superyachts are not renowned for their modesty but, in a landmark demonstration of sustainable boating, a Volvo Penta IPS-powered Amer 94 has cruised at a variety of speeds over a 100-mile journey, while delivering radically lower fuel consumption. Volvo Penta and Amer Yachts teamed up to demonstrate that the combination of a premium propulsion system and innovative boat design can create superyachts that deliver exceptional fuel efficiency.

A controlled 100-mile journey from Viareggio to Sanremo saw the Amer 94 reduce its fuel consumption by up to 45 per cent compared to yachts fitted with traditional inboard shaft installation.

Barbara Amerio, owner of Amer Yachts, said: "In designing the new Amer 94, we wanted to create a yacht that is sustainable in many aspects, we began the design process a year ago in collaboration with Volvo Penta and other companies. And in that one year we turned dreams into reality and proved that it is possible to have a sustainable superyacht with today's technology".
