Sports car brand CUPRA partnered with the Barcelona-based, high-performance designer yacht firm De Antonio Yachts to create the D28 Formentor e-hybrid electrified yacht. The bank of up to six batteries gives it a range in electric mode of up to 12 miles, with about two hours of sailing at a cruising speed of 6 knots and a top speed of 8 knots.
The initial collaboration in 2020 between the two brands resulted in a 400PS showboat that can reach a top speed of 40 knots. The boat’s exterior design is characterized by straight lines, dynamic character, and unconventional colors. The yacht boasts a distinctive Petrol Blue hull, several accents in black and carbon fibre along with a number of distinguishing elements.
We love bringing our performance to other territories. De Antonio is the perfect partner for being the unconventional challenger in a completely different environment on the sea. Now, we are taking that extra step with a hybrid version of the D28 Formentor which will be officially presented to the public at the beginning of 2023. – Antonino Labate, Global Director of Strategy, Business Development & Operations at CUPRA
The design of the De Antonio Yachts D28 Formentor draws inspiration from the first model uniquely designed and developed for the brand, the CUPRA Formentor. And now the collaboration adds electrification to the mix.
In addition to the 400PS engine, two retractable 15kW electric motors are integrated into the powertrain, to create a hybrid system, allowing the yacht to ride either in combustion mode or fully electric mode. While riding in 100% electric mode, the D28 Formentor navigates in zero-emissions in restricted harbors and lakes.
The D28 Formentor yacht also features a brand new paint option Graphene Grey – from the CUPRA palette of colors – combined with synthetic teak deck and grey upholstery.
With the development of the new e-hybrid yacht, both CUPRA and De Antonio Yachts prove their commitment to innovation and progress towards more environmentally friendly vehicles, on land and at sea.
