Rush yachts, a new boat builder based in the UK have come up with something a little bit different from the norm. Built with the environment in mind the team at Rush have come up with a “Green” yacht tender/ chase boat.

Rush Yachts have recently revealed their brand-new project. The Rush 39 which is designed around using the most advanced and green materials, technologies, and processes to create the most practically green superyacht tender/day boat within the 12m (39ft) range.

The Rush Yachts team’s experience lies within building and refitting some of the most well-known superyachts around the world. Through research, development, and the drive to be a big part in the advancement of the marine industries green accreditation and future sustainability, the Rush 39 was built.

With a shift in people’s conscious efforts to reduce their environmental impact whilst still enjoying the luxuries of owning their own boat, the Rush 39 offers a very different and sustainable package to those currently available within the superyacht tender and day boat range.

The Rush 39

Integrates several features that improve the overall practical functionality, performance, and useability to enable maximum enjoyment for the owner and their guests. By exploiting the full exterior beam of the boat there is a very well arranged and spacious exterior space, whilst internally the natural shape of the Rush 39 gives an unrivalled interior volume for its overall size with the benefits of natural lighting from the large hull windows and skylights.

One of the examples of where Rush Yachts have used the latest in green technologies is within the propulsion/hotel loads. By using the latest Volvo Penta IPS engines with integrated generators there is an operating fuel reduction of up to 25%. The arrangement charges a 20kW battery bank which allows the owner to enjoy sitting at anchor or staying overnight without the need to run a diesel engine.

The hull and deck construction makes use of natural fibre materials, bio resins and recycled core materials, whilst all the deck is manufactured using sustainable timber.

The Rush 39

Comes with a comprehensive list of custom options from electric/hybrid propulsion, AV packages, additional cabin, through to heated seats at the helm giving the owner full flexibility in their specification and creating their own personal footprint on their Rush 39.
