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
Complete autonomy and ocean crossing ability are now available
to a couple at the 70' size. Sacrifice nothing while using
energy gathered from the sun.
Two tried and tested hybrid models are available, inquire about the Serial Hybrid or Parallel Hybrid model today!
In our Parallel model, each propeller shaft is attached to one diesel motor (450hp), the Transfluid clutch system and two 20kw electric machines. This system provides high speeds over 15 knots and a redundancy level necessary for open blue water. It is rated for transatlantic crossings and can be configured to cross the pacific. The diesel engine's alternator is upgraded by Integrel Solutions to allow for 12kW of power to charge the Lithium batteries whenever it is running.
At idle the inboard motor functions as a generator, while underway with diesel the electric machines can generate an additional 40kW of power.
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.
Our Serial Hybrid model only
uses electric motors on the shaft. 250kW electric motors large DC gensets power this vessel over 12 knots.
The world is a beautiful place;
Nova Luxe Yachts strives to keep
it that way by not polluting.
