FSD, Ferretti Group's Business Unit dedicated to the Defence and Security sector, returns to Seafuture in La Spezia to present the patrol boat FSD N800, an innovative vessel suitable for public safety, rescue and patrol operations, powered by a "zero emissions" propulsion system.

For SEAFUTURE 2021, FSD selected the hybrid powered FSD N800 vessel to demonstrate its commitment to the principles of sustainability that much of the shipping industry is espousing with the support of the Client.
"We believe that research on high-performance materials, design and new hybrid propulsion systems are at the heart of the Blue Economy and that FSD's technological contribution can contribute positively to the progression of the entire sector. With this spirit, we are happy to be able to expose to the attention of a competent and international public a vessel of high technological avant-garde which, in line with the Ferretti Group's strategy, offers to the most demanding users nautical performance associated with attention to the environment", commented Giuliano Felten, Director of FSD - Ferretti Security Division.
The new FSD N800 units are 16.75 metres long and 4.43 metres wide, with a draught of 1.57 metres, and are built with a hull in composite material, from glass-carbon fibre. Their peculiarity is the efficiency of the hybrid propulsion; they are in fact equipped with a new concept Transfluid diesel/electric hybrid engine that allows a "zero emissions" navigation. The combination of technological innovation and design capacity ensures a significant reduction in consumption and environmental impact to protect the marine ecosystem and, at the same time, a level of performance in terms of speed and manoeuvrability appropriate to the assigned mission.
