The 150-foot vessel, formerly a fishing trawler called HD23 Vertrouwen, has been retro-fitted into an exploration yacht that could even travel to the North Pole by Damen Maaskant Shipyard. The owner himself calls the vessel an SUV on the ocean.

Smart-Ship throttle controls

The Scintilla Maris has been equipped with a high-tech bridge of which the Smart-Ship throttle levers form a crucial part. In collaboration with D&A Electric the haptic throttle and bow thruster controls have been installed to ensure sustainable operations. While sailing the vessel, the operator will receive feedback through forces and vibrations in the controls, informing him on the most sustainable way of sailing.
