Greenline 33 Shows How to Do Green

In a recent piece I did for Boats.com, I wrote that the new Greenline 33 cruiser is the real green deal.  I saw and briefly tested the boat at the Annapolis Powerboat Show last fall and it truly impressed me.  Here’s a quick rundown on the boat; for the full story, read the article at Boats.com.

This boat will:

  • Take power from the pedestal when tied up at the dock
  • Take power from the sun through its solar-panel roof and drive the boat at 6 knots for 20 miles
  • Take power from its VW Marine diesel; either the standard SDI 75-5, driving the boat at about 10 knots; or the optional TDI 165-5. Either way, you will be sipping quarts of few per hour, not gallons.

You can enjoy your own stateroom forward with a fillable vee-berth, and bring the grandkids along for the weekend and let them sleep in the salon. The galley is aft along the starboard side, and its glass rear wall folds up with the help of a gas piston, opening the whole back of the boat to the cockpit and folding transom/swim platform.
