30 to 40 feet and less than 8 tons Catamaran Hybrid
Quickly under sail, these kinds of boats are often light and fast, they are ideal to work with electric and hybrid engines.
Its double motorization allows you to double the hydro generation and thus reduce or eliminate the use of a generator
We recommend the following solutions for the electric motors and the autonomous production of green energy on your boat :
ELECTRIC OR HYBRID MOTOR FOR CATAMARAN
OCEANVOLT, 2 SAILDRIVE or SERVOPROP 10 kW electric motors + generator set DC 10 kW
OCEANVOLT offers 2 types of sail drive from 10 to 15 kW. The standard SD model and SERVOPROP. The latter is equipped with a variable-pitch propeller that improves propulsion power by 30% and the regeneration by 300%.
OCEANVOLT sail drives are very light and allow you to gain significant space when compared to a Diesel motor. Their optimized efficiency replaces the advantages of internal combustion engines of 20/25 CV HP.
There is no need to modify the structure because the supports are compatible with the sail drive on the market (Volvo, Yanmar).
With 2 motors, you can produce more than 400 watts by hydro generation with the SD and 1 kW with the SERVOPROP.
From 62,000 euros HT (SD) and 74,000 euros HT (SERVOPROP) with a 11 KWH LIFEPO battery pack, 10KW DC generator and chargers.
Not including installation and transport.

Technological advances in terms of solar panels on boats make them almost essential nowadays, whether it is to maintain the charge of the batteries during absences, without having to moor the boat to the dock, or to spread the ever-increasing consumption on board and supply power to the batteries of the electric motor propulsion.
Catamarans offer big surfaces for the installation of flexible panels on the roof and bimini, and fixed panels on the davit. We quickly reach 1 KWp of power
- 25% high efficiency cells and Rear Contact Technology
- Anti-slip coating trampling resistant
- Optimized coating for shaded areas
- 5-year warranty

GENERATOR FOR CATAMARAN
Take advantage of the space saved with the installation of an electric motor to give yourself the comfort of a generator.
We have selected the generator sets from the brand Fischer Panda because they are compact, silent and they can be easily integrated into a 48 volts electric motorization system.
The set could therefore supply the batteries and the motor. We recommend the AGT DC with a power of 3 to 25 KW.
FYI: the diesel consumption of an electric motor powered by a generator set is less than that of a diesel motor at the same speed.
- Almost unlimited autonomy
- Comfortable electrical equipment
- Low noise thanks to its cocoon
- Low Weight
(Generator + electric motor + batteries) equivalent to a Diesel engine).
The initial results exceeded all of our expectations at the shipyard, in terms of speed and even the scope of the system. The acceleration is definitely superior to that of a diesel engine. Besides, with the recharge of the generator, you get over 60 hours of self sufficiency, which is 20 hours longer than with a diesel engine.
