Eleonora lll was previously a demo yacht. Never titled, it was purchased from Columbus Yachts in early 2016. World renowned Patton Marine Surveyors performed an out of the water, through 5 day hull and electrical survey/sea trail at that time.
Since then, this award winning yacht has received extensive mechanical, interior and electrical upgrades. Eleonora lll is now prepared for global use. The owner performed a major interior makeover.
These mechanical, electrical and interior upgrades were performed at a cost exceeding 2 million dollars.
Mechanical upgrades include:

This highly innovative, technologically advanced yacht features a hybrid propulsion system, combining high performance with low fuel consumption. With an elegant exterior design and vast deck areas, combined with a spacious modern, light interior, this exceptional yacht is perfectly suited for cruising in comfort and style.
Multiple 2014 Showboat Design Winner.
The aim of the Sport Hybrid line is to provide owners with fast sporting yachts without forgoing the comfort, elegance and style of mega yachts.
The sleek aggressive lines are designed to merge seamlessly with the environment and enhance the pleasure of luxury yachting in harmony with the sea. Sport indicates the high performances of this Superyacht, equipped with two diesel engines which will give a top speed of 20 knots, with the ability to cruise at 15 knots.
The Sport Hybrid Line is environmentally friendly and technologically advanced, providing a unique setting for Owners who wish to enjoy the sea while preserving the environment.
The Hull has been designed using CFD analysis and tank tests, in order to optimize the fuel consumption at low and medium speed without sacrificing performances at higher speeds.
40S Hybrid is powered with advanced hybrid propulsion, combining high performance, on a top speed of 20 knots with reduced environmental impact. The choice of using a hybrid system was the result of a deep study done from Palumbo shipyard together with RINA classification society, which let the Columbus Sport hybrid 40m be the first yacht with the Hybrid Propulsion as an additional notation class issued by RINA: EFP Hybrid Propulsion (Y), Aut CCS (Y), Green Plus (Y) Platinum.
The Hybrid concept is a main improvement that, thanks to two electrical motors fitted on the gearboxes, allows the 40S Hybrid to cruise at 8 knots using only the gensets and the electrical motors. The electrical propulsion system Eco Prop Hybrid will allow navigating at low speed with very limited consumption, high comfort and almost no noise.
On board you will be able to experience the thrill of performance and maximum comfort, typical of Hybrid yachts. The same hybrid power train can be used as shaft generator using the excess power not used for diesel engines. The hybrid system will allow the yacht to cruise in extremely quiet and vibration free conditions.
When cruising with the main engine, the two electrical motors will work as shaft generators allowing nonstop auxiliary generators during long transit.

Columbus Yachts Hybrid Propulsion System combines several elements known for their reliability into a single whole, creating a revolutionary flexible system while maintaining a very friendly user interface.
Benefits related to an Hybrid Propulsion System are to be considered as the sum of the specific benefits related to each “MODE”.
Using a conventional propulsion system (engine, gearbox, shaft, propeller), changes were made to the gearbox. A PTI/PTO (Power Take in/Power Take Out) was installed to the gearbox, the same kind of PTO used for hydraulic stabilizers before the advent of separate hydraulic Power Packs, along with an electric motor and a hydraulic clutch.
On the Columbus 40M Sport Hybrid, the electric motor is considered another service element, together with the bow thruster, the galley, and so on. The motor is connected to the primary electrics panel and powered by two generators. Using the PTI/PTO, the electric motor has three electric operational modes, easily controlled by pressing a button on the touch screen.
ELECTRIC OPERATIONAL MODE
This technology, which is several decades old, is often applied on ferries and cruise ships, and is known as diesel electric propulsion. The generators are running and provide electric power to the electric panel which then regulate the electric motor as a service element.
Each electric motor on the Columbus 40M Sport Hybrid absorbs 75 kW out of the available 200 kW, 100 kW per generator, for a total of 150 kW. 50 kW are therefore free for other uses. The clutch is engaged, the electric motor turns the gearbox which in turn revolves the propeller.
BENEFITS RELATED TO THE “ELECTRIC OPERATIONAL MODE”
When in ‘Electric Mode’, the yacht behaves like a sailboat: zero noise, exhaust and vibration, while her speed is relatively slow. Each motor's upper limit of 75 kW gives the yacht a top speed of eight knots, but in complete silence. Another plus related to the Electric Mode is the fuel consumption reduction: approximately 80 liters/hour. A remarkable advantage for a 40 meter yacht.
