Ghost G180 – the world’s first luxury hybrid superyacht

The team of Ghost Yachts, the Italian design studio Gloss Design and Imtech Marine & Offshore presents this Ghost G180H, the first full hybrid superyacht.

Ghost Yachts have used its Ghost G180 platform, presented a year ago, for the hybrid yacht. Its Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) by Van Oossanen & Associates offers the required efficiency to operate a large yacht with a relatively modest propulsion power.

Imtech’s smart Hybrid systems combined with Van Oossanen’s revolutionary FDHF have proven to be a perfect combination for a sustainable and efficient yacht.


The Ghost G180H is propelled by two completely new electric Voith Inline Propulsors (VIP) of 750kw each. These high efficiency hubless steerable pods have an integrated electric motor and eliminate the need for propeller shafts and rudders.

With 12 guest rooms, the Ghost G180H has been designed to keep power consumption to the minimum; the interior is also designed to require less energy from the HVAC system.

The main salon and dining room, for example, are equipped with four generous lateral sliding doors which provide access for a natural breeze that flows through the superstructure. Its extensive use of LED lighting will further guarantee lower consumption.

With all its sustainable features in place, the Ghost G180H records an overall fuel consumption reduced by a vast 30 per cent while the fuel consumption for hotel operation showed savings of up to 50 per cent.

The G180H has been engineered to offer a cruising speed of 15.5 knots with a range of over 4500nm at a 13 knots passage speed.
