The world’s largest plug-in hybrid vessel, Color Hybrid, has been appointed ‘Ship of the Year 2019’.

Gunvor Ulstein, Ulstein Group CEO, received the award from HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway at the Nor-Shipping exhibition on June 4, 2019.

Being built for cruise and ferry company Color Line, the yard number 311 unit is currently undergoing outfitting works at Ulstein Verft. Designed by Fosen Yard, the vessel will be put to service between Sandefjord, Norway and Strömstad, Sweden this summer.

With a battery package of 4.7 MWh, the Color Hybrid is capable of travelling 12 nautical miles only on battery power, charged with shore power in Sandefjord.

Measuring 160 meters in length and 27.1 meters in the beam, the vessel can carry 2,000 passengers and 500 cars.

The ‘Ship of the Year’ is awarded annually by the maritime magazine Skipsrevyen.
