Rolls-Royce – Crystal Blue luxury yacht

A ground-breaking luxury yacht concept designed by Rolls-Royce to showcase the advantages of advanced ship intelligence solutions and hybrid propulsion based on LNG fuel and battery power in the marine leisure market. Introduced at the Global Superyacht Forum (GSF) in Amsterdam, the Crystal Blue yacht and its attendant support vessel Blue Shadow have been developed to enable new thinking in yacht design and propulsion by optimising the yacht’s super structure for greater guest use and comfort. Crystal Blue has been designed specifically to show how new technology can meet the yacht sector’s increased demand for higher performance, greater operating ranges and increased levels of guest comfort, without impacting the environment.
