Swan 55/57 CC – S/Y Night Train

"Our big engine refit is currently being implemented. Bye to the 6 cylinder diesel engine and AC diesel generator. This is a multidimensional project; electric propulsion (combined with hydrogeneration), large lithium battery bank and big DC generator will cater for both silence while motoring and independence to run all systems for an extended period of time while under way and at anchor. A hybrid system was our choice, both from a safety and comfort point of view." – Johan Wentzel, owner of S/Y Night Train
