• With Liva°, shipbuilder Abeking & Rasmussen is setting new benchmarks for superyachts;
• The high level of comfort on board is guaranteed by the four low-vibration, low-noise VITs as maneuvering system;
• The design principle of the VIT ensures high reliability and low maintenance requirements.

However, its length is by no means the only record-breaking feature that the shipyard offers in the superyacht segment. The sleek black hull is a visual highlight that draws the observer’s gaze to focus entirely on the elegant silhouette. All technical necessities are accommodated in a way that makes them as invisible as possible.

These impressive features are capped off with a sophisticated diesel-electric propulsion system, designed for exceptionally quiet operation to deliver a high level of comfort on board. The elementary building blocks of this concept include four Voith Inline Thrusters 1000-300 (VIT). At 300 kW each, they help ensure exceptionally quiet maneuvering.

Since its introduction in 2008, the VIT has proven effective in numerous maritime applications and has made Voith a market leader in this segment. The popularity of the system is based among other things on its compact design, extremely low-vibration operation, fast responsiveness and low maintenance requirement.

In the VIT, a rim-driven propeller is driven by a permanent magnet electric motor. The system works without a drive shaft or transmission. The propeller is mounted on a seawater-lubricated slide bearing patented by Voith. This technology ensures a compact design, low vibrations and extremely quiet running. The specially developed blade geometry also reduces cavitation and helps minimize vibrations and noise.

Thanks to its design, the VIT has very few wear parts. Moreover, the propeller blades can be replaced individually and underwater. These two features allow uncomplicated and cost-efficient maintenance.

"The VIT is the perfect drive system for vessels whose passengers expect an especially high level of comfort. The extremely quiet operation ensures an exceptionally comfortable stay on board, while the design principle guarantees continuous reliable operation."
Oliver Lenz, Sales Application Manager at Voith

Abeking & Rasmussen (abeking.com) has been working closely with Voith for many years and has already used innovative drive concepts from Heidenheim in countless vessels. For example, the three new Scharhörn-class multipurpose vessels built for the German Federal Waterways and Shipping Administration in 2021 are also equipped with VIT systems.
