along with efficiency.
Four knots is delightful, but not
always what you want. The test boat had
the Hybrid engine package with the
optional Volvo D3 diesel making 220
horsepower, plus the electric motor.
This changes things a lot. What's interesting is that under diesel power, at 4.2
knots you're generating 30 amps of
power and at 7.4 knots, you're generating 100 amps which means that in 20
minutes you can return the batteries to
approximately 80% of full charge.
What's more impressive is that the
Greenline 33 is absolutely serene! As
Gerry pointed out, the boat is so quiet
that the high-end Fusion stereo system is
a critical part of the package! You will
enjoy your favourite tunes without interruption aboard the Greenline 33 Hybrid.
So, with the Volvo Penta D3 running
you can make good time to beat a storm
in or reach a destination traveling at up
to 18 knots (20.7 mph) at full speed. But
electric power only is wonderful; it forces
you to slow down and it's so quiet and
comfortable that it's like sailing only easier and you're basically traveling for free!
The test boat was equipped with a
Raymarine system and the autopilot is

Top Right: Shot at dockside, this shows the roof-mounted solar panels that provide
abundant energy to charge the batteries and operate the many onboard systems including the air conditioning.

hybrid propulsion systems, opening side glass and windshield section.

very easy to use. You set your course,
push "auto" and then just relax, or you
can program in a series of waypoints and
let the boat take you to wherever you
want to go. At four to six knots the
Greenline 33 stays very flat and stable
and everything goes at a relaxed pace.
Time aboard the Greenline 33 is really
a vacation.
hybrid Power
Getting a bit technical, the Greenline
33 has a lithium polymer 48-volt main
power supply plus an inverter to step up
to 110 volts for the household size
refrigerator, air conditioning system,
microwave and any other household
appliances. Then, the bow and stern

thrusters are 12 volt and each has its
own battery. There is a fourth battery for
engine starting as well.
Covering most of the sleek coach
roof, solar panels charge the main
batteries during daylight and without
effort. The lithium polymer batteries
stored on the port side under the saloon
seating, can go through as many as
2,000 cycles. Gerry explained that they
are very reliable batteries that you can
discharge to almost zero and then bring
right back to 100% so, you'll get many
years of use out of the battery system.
Individual cells can be replaced if need
be so you might not face a battery
replacement for years. In the future, it
is expected that battery prices will drop
