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

White Rabbit  is 3000 gross tons, 84 meter long, and 20 meter wide. It is built in aluminium, and is the first ever megayacht built in Australia with
diesel-electric propulsion.

It is also the worlds largest trimaran superyacht.

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 5000 nautical miles.

Two geared STADT AC induction motors runs the 2 shaft line CP propellers. This represents a high efficient 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 makes this possible with the Lean Drives, which is now also used in naval ships for this reason.
