The Expedition Boat
The first “Zero Emission Mode” motor yacht over 20 meters, The Long Range 23 is the first craft to obtain the RINA “Green Star Clean Energy and Clean Propulsion” certification. The first "Zero Emission Mode" motor yacht over 20 meters.
Mochi Craft now enters the “expedition boat” market – also called “long range” – with two new solutions that open up new horizons in the international nautical panorama: the “Zero Emission Mode” hybrid propulsion system and the new FER.WEY (Ferretti Wave Efficient Yacht) trans-planning hull.
THE “ZEM” (ZERO EMISSION MODE) HYBRID PROPULSION SYSTEM
The innovative hybrid propulsion combines the reliability of the traditional diesel, which when selected transmits power directly to the propellers, with the ability to cruise in ‘Zero Emission Mode’, powered by a pack of Lithium ion batteries. It can operate in 5 different modes:
1) DIESEL PROPULSION AND ENERGY STORING
3) ZEM Propulsion
4) ZEM Function
Modes 3 and 4, for example, allow owners to enjoy the exclusive, unique experience of entering a bay, lying at anchor for several hours with full on-board functionality, then leaving, secure in the knowledge that the entire operation has been carried out in total silence and with zero emissions.
THE FER.WEY (FERRETTI WAVE EFFICIENT YACHT) HULL
It is an innovative type of hull, described as ‘transplaning’, which enables owners to cruise with great comfort and efficiency in the intermediate speed range where both planning and dis-placement hulls generally behave in an abnormal way.
The FER.WEY transplaning hull allows this craft to pass the 15 - 16 knot level gradually with a per-fectly horizontal attitude, reaching 20 knots.
As a result, the FER.WEY hull offers owners:
- A stable longitudinal attitude
- Maximum cruising efficiency up to 16 knots
- Significant reduction in rolling
Finally, the special shape of the FER.WEY hull allows the craft to rest on the sea bottom while protecting the propellers from impact damage, and allows owners to access areas that would be a risky proposition for other types of hull.
The extremely spacious cockpit – which gives access to the panoramic bridge – is furnished with two divans and a teak table.
Access to the salon is through the side large glass doors, perfectly integrated into the windows running all the way around the main deck that flood the interiors with natural light. With the absence of partitions this 42 square meter sweep of open space, comprising the salon area and raised dinette, combines comfort with lively sociability and warmth.
The living area is dominated by the presence of three large sofas. arranged in a ”C” shape and flanked by two square, angular tables that create a relaxation area for up 11 people. The lunch area, which provides access to the lower deck and helm station, is furnished with an extendable teak table for eight and leather chairs.
Further forward is the roomy raised dinette with oak flooring, including a breakfast area with table and small sofa for 4, plus the spacious galley with peninsula and ample storage lockers, quartz resin worktop and glass entresol separating the dinette from the cooking area. The dinette gives on to the forward lounge with small sofas, large sun loungers and two identical extendable tables – this area, the great design innovation introduced by the yard, distinguishes the Long Range 23 from other long ranges on the market, where it is always a technical space.
The full beam owner’s cabin lies in a privileged position amidships, ensuring maximum space and comfort. It has large open view windows on both sides, a desk with drawers and a leather sofa against the opposite wall. It also features a walk-in wardrobe and bathroom boasting a striped teak and maple floor in the most classic Mochi Craft style, with spacious separate shower and mosaic walls.
The lower deck offers three or four cabins, depending on the owner’s choice of layout. The standard layout with 3 cabins comprises a forward VIP cabin with spacious walk-in wardrobe and private bathroom with shower.
The upper deck helm station offers outstanding visibility and confirms the thoroughly seaworthy approach adopted for the design of this craft.
The onboard instrumentation embodies all Ferretti’s cutting edge technology; behind the skipper’s chair is a comfy L-shaped leather divan with extendable teak table, flanked by a writing desk. This space, with oak parquet floor, also features a day head. There is a large storage aft area, accessed by the exterior folding stairs. It’s also possible to choose an optional layout with a comfortable captain’s cabin and separate bathroom with shower. The external area to aft hosts the electro-hydraulic launch davit and garage for tender and Jet Ski.
