The Lagoon 420 Hybrid – the first low carbon production yacht

Our hats off to Lagoon for this fantastic yacht that for the first time adds the hybrid engine principles pioneered in the auto industry to reduce carbon emissions.  The Lagoon 420 hybrid has two electric motors, propelled by batteries.  These batteries, which recharge from the turning props while sailing, can run the engines for 2 hours for completely eco-friendly cruising.  There is an onboard diesel generator that kicks in if the batteries get too low so that you can motor for more than two hours if necessary.
