Electric motors paired with a solar array offer a boating experience
ideal for Cruisers.
This combination of parts creates
a hybrid; half sailboat, half powerboat. Unlimited range, low pollution and silence are qualities closely matching our sailing heritage. Ease of operation and ability to operate singlehanded are qualities like those in a powerboat.
As a bonus, all electric yachts have plenty of battery power to run the house load for days without ever running a generator
Three tried and tested hybrid models are available, inquire about the (IE) inboard electric, parallel hybrid or serial hybrid today!
In our IE model, the two propulsion systems can function completely independently. Providing a redundancy level necessary for
open blue water. The diesel engine's alternator is upgraded by Integrel Solutions to allow for 15kW of power to charge the Lithium batteries whenever it is running.
At idle the inboard motor functions as a generator removing the need for that piece of equipment.
While at rest, the solar arrays are large enough to supply the entire house load in all but extreme conditions. Excess power is stored in our large battery bank and can be used later for propulsion.
In practical use, you could spend several days at an island then use
the power you stored to travel an additional 5-30 miles to the next island. Leave the diesel in the tank and travel on green energy.
The world is a beautiful place;
Nova Luxe Yachts strives to keep
it that way by not polluting.
