Electric Hybrid Catamaran - Powercat 3400
10.4M Hybrid Catamaran
In order to assist with “range anxiety” we have built an E-boat with a “range extender”. The “range extender” is no ordinary generator. It is the latest and greatest generator that is variable speed. Accordingly it is quarter of the size of a standard marine generator and accordingly only uses about 1/4 of the fuel that a standard one would.
Therefore with this vessel you can run purely in battery mode for as long as you care to. You can charge your batteries at anchor. You can charge while you are running. You can also bypass the batteries and run the engines directly from the generator in diesel electric mode. If you’re not yet prepared to go all electric yet, then this is the boat for you.
The Powercat 3400 Hybrid Catamaran has moved to the painter in January 2020.
The Catamaran will be ready for his first sea trial in May 2020.
