White Rabbit Megayacht Commissioned

STADT has finalised installation of the Lean Propulsion system on the megayacht White Rabbit, built at Echo Yachts in Perth Australia.

White Rabbit is 3,000 gross tonnes, 84m-long, and 20m-wide. It is built in aluminium and is the first ever megayacht built in Australia with diesel-electric propulsion.

It is also one of the world’s largest trimaran superyachts.

Endurance is important for such a ship, so weight, size and propulsion efficiency has been very important for this project.

It has a range of 5,000nm.

Two geared STADT AC induction motors run the 2 shaft line CP propellers. This represents a high efficiency and low weight overall solution.

The STADT Lean Drive technology also represents a reliable technology that ensures the propellers will not stop in the middle of the ocean.

​A noise free ride is also essential for a mega yacht. Patented Sinusoidal drive features make this possible with the Lean Drives, which is now also used in naval ships for this reason.

Shipowners require reliable and efficient vessels that will operate, year after year, in adverse weather conditions.
The Navy requires efficient vessels that are safe and fully operational in all seasons and weather conditions.
