B145: Explorer Capability

In terms of her technical details, it’s clear that the B145 yacht is a vessel built to explore.

The banks are recharged by high-efficiency, variable speed DC generators. Docking and mooring is possible in the electric mode.

The special feature of this model is the ice belt that will allow the owner to explore the most interesting places of our planet. B145 has an enormous fuel capacity: 95,600 l. An autonomous range in excess of 5000+ nm allows her owners to reach any destinations in complete comfort and safety.
