The Global 500 Hybrid is a next-generation explorer that steps boldly into the domain of hybrid propulsion. The fast displacement hull combined with MAN diesels and twin Siemens EcoProp electric motors mean the lightweight, all-aluminium G 500 is not only eco-friendly and highly efficient, with a cruising range of 4,500 nm, but also extremely quiet. The loft-style layout features a master stateroom on the main deck with two fixed balconies, five deluxe guest cabins on the lower deck, a spa with sauna and a toys garage in the transom, a huge sundeck with a hot tub and space for gym equipment, and a touch-and-go helipad on the main deck aft rated at 3,000kg. Furthermore, the yacht comes with stylish interior design by Bentley Home as standard and incredible ceiling heights of 2.2 metres throughout.
Fast displacement hull formDevised by leading Dutch naval architects, the G500 unique hull features a round-bilge shape for remarkably low resistance and low fuel consumption while still being capable of high speeds. The design decreases vertical accelerations of the hull, which translates into a far more comfortable motion when sailing. The bow shape with a vertical stem maximizes the waterline length, enhancing performance even more. To keep spray levels low, an integrated spray rail deflects water hitting the bow area. Built entirely from marine grade aluminium, the G500 hull guarantees unparalleled comfort and safe operation for more than 25 years.
Robust full aluminium constructionCertified marine-grade 5083 aluminium and stronger 5383 Sealium, a lightweight alloy that weighs three times less than steel, is used for Dynamiq G500 hull and superstructure. A lighter hull provides better performance, shallower draft, lower fuel consumption. Another benefit is that aluminium guarantees a stiff, robust and vibration-free vessel that is very comfortable and behaves well in a heavy swell or choppy seas. The strength-to-weight ratio of aluminium is equivalent to that of steel and there is much less risk of serious damage in case of a collision than with a fibreglass hull.
Hybrid power plantWith the main engines switched off, the generators power two 100 kW electric motors allowing the yacht to reach 8 knots in complete silence for an unlimited period of time.
Hull VaneThe Hull Vane® is a patented fixed foil located under the stern of the yacht. Developed by renowned Dutch naval architects Van Oossanen it influences the stern wave pattern and creates hydrodynamic lift, which is partially oriented forward. This innovation leads to significant reduction of the hull's resistance, which in turn enables the installation of smaller engines, fuel savings and longer range. The Hull Vane® also improves stability under way and at anchor, while reducing both pitching and yawing motions.
Curved Stabilizer FinsVector Fins stabilizers dramatically reduce roll as well as undesired yaw and sway motions caused by active fins. Their vertical concave shape creates a net force direction, both in cruising and at-anchor modes, so the work is more up-down instead of side-to-side. By changing the net force angle, this also increases the leverage arm around the boat’s rolling point, further increasing the physical forces that work on the boat to reduce roll. This provides more efficient stabilization per fin size, which means that drag and power consumption are less than with other fins offering comparable roll reduction.
Transatlantic rangeThe G500 has an ocean-going range of 4,500 miles at 10 knots and is perfectly equipped for long-range cruises, which means owners have the opportunity to enjoy two seasons during the year (Med and Caribbean) and greater freedom navigating remote locations with no bunkering infrastructure. G440 is equipped with high-capacity Miele marine fridges and freezers, cold garbage stores, separate laundry facilities and plenty of storage space. Generous fresh-water tanks and powerful water-makers allow guests to spend long periods of time sea in complete comfort.
Touch & Go helipadHelicopters are a convenient, time-saving and safe means of transportation. They are also a stylish way to welcome guests in style or explore uncharted locations. The G500 offers a touch-and-go helipad platform with a maximum take-off weight 3,000 kg (Eurocopter EC130 T2, AW 119, Bell 407 GXP).
Engine room coolingThe engine room cooling offers two main benefits: on the one hand it cools down the ER quicker on arrival in port or anchorage without having the blowers running full power for an hour; and on the other hand, it keeps the ER at a comfortable and steady temperature while at anchor to preserve electrical equipment. Overall, the benefit is reduced noise as there is no need to have the blowers running when the yacht is static, and the temperature cooling in the engine room makes it a more comfortable environment to work in. A long-term benefit is that it extends the longevity of all the equipment and especially the electronic parts.
Bentley Home exclusive furniture collectionFeel the way you drive, with a new range of handmade furniture inspired by the techniques, materials and finishes that characterise Bentley’s renowned car interiors. Browse through a selection of loose furnishings and accessories from cult brand Bentley Home and lamps from Tom Dixon and Flos. Marbles, fabrics, leathers and accessories can be customised by the client with Bentley Home designers to ensure individual selections. Hand-tufted carpets in pure silk, bamboo and finest New Zealand virgin wool are supplied by OT (Germany), a world leader in the manufacturing and laying of exclusive hand-made carpets.
Main saloon fireplaceA real fireplace becomes a centrepiece and adds a cosy touch, especially when cruising early or later in the season when the evenings can be a bit chilly. They are completely safe and fully certified and rely on low-heat producing fuels such as ethanol.
High-end audio by Bowers & WilkinsDynamiq has partnered with iconic British sound maker Bowers & Wilkins to deliver pristine sound to its discerning customers. All luxury spaces and each guest cabin will be carefully analysed and studied by experts to ensure the ideal positioning of the speaker systems to have the best possible sound expertise on board.
XIR glassThe G500 features next-generation laminated XIR glass that allows maximum light transmission, while keeping solar heat gain at bay. Harmful UV rays are almost completely blocked, and heat transmission reduced by 60%. The result is an interior that offers the wide panoramas of large windows without the penalty of heat build-up. This means significantly reduced air-conditioning loads and therefore lower running costs. The glass manufacturer is Isoclima, an Italian high-tech company that also supplies glass for luxury automobiles such as Bentley, McLaren, Mercedes and BMW.
Owner’s stateroom with two fixed balconiesA standout feature aboard the G500 are the two fixed balconies in the owner’s stateroom, which do not require any servicing or crew member to operate. Nor does the floor become an unsightly wall as with fold-down balconies. A fixed balcony means you can wake up and enjoy your morning coffee, sunbath in full privacy or read a newspaper close to the sea without delay.
