    This could be a good one for single handed, or two people. Should be able to go anywhere...its strong, 1/2 aluminum......2000 mile range, shallow draft.. Twin keels...kite sail. Wasnt able to download pics but can be seen at their website, Meta Chantier.

    The specific one there is the Ecotroll 39. Has many good points, especially if I just go with my admiral.

    She does look very neat.

    I could save the general arrangement drawings below, but I couldn't save any photos.
    She appears to have two small diesel engines using saildrive legs, but I wonder how the electric motor(s) are included in the propulsion arrangement?

    This is what they say about her :
    The Ecotroll 39 is the most ecological motor yacht possible! It is equipped with hybrid diesel and electric engines as well as a "kite" wing/sail allowing it to further reduce its consumption. It has a range of 6 hours at 5.5 knots in electric and more than 2000 miles at 6 knots in diesel engine making it the smallest motor yacht to be approved in category A offshore. Her shallow draft and Strongall hull allow her to sail in all the seas of the world, rivers and canals.

    This yacht of a little less than 12m is composed of a large living room with kitchen, chart table and the wheelhouse on the main deck as well as a bathroom and two double bedrooms, one of which is the owner's bedroom on the lower deck.

    Yes, thats the one, but they dont give exact details. I guess one would have to ask them for more. There has to be electric motors too if it can go 6 hours pure electric. But there are several pics on their website. These Meta boats use the Strongal system in aluminum, I think half inch think. Should be a good one. If too small for some, they also have that 56' motor boat too that presumably could be done as a hybrid, and with kitesail too.
