A 60ft catamaran on a vital mission to raise awareness on ocean plastic issues. Sail Electric have been commissioned to power this vessel entirely by natural resources. with inspired approach to propulsion, and a deck covered in solar. she sets sail summer 2022[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”4941″ img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]Southerly 47 Bluewater cruiser

30kW AXC OceanVolt shaft drive conversion, custom deck and arch mounted flexible solar, LiFePO4 energy storage, 15kW DC range extender with induction cooking. Prepared for round the world fully electric, and completely off the grid.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”4938″ img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]Custom Bifacial arch in design

Utilising the latest in flexible solar bifacial technology from Solbian, this yachts new stainless rear arch and mppt tracked solar will keep this vessel sailing the world unplugged.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”706″ img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]100% electric Contessa 34

Conversion from shaft to OceanVolt electric sail drive, a 10kW drive system with 1000W of solar and 700W of potential regen enables this research vessel to sail without impact, on marine exploration missions for seagrass and microplastics and ocean literacy campaigns[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”870″ img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]100% electric Oyster Marina 35

Conversion to a 15kW Bell Marine electric shaft drive motor and LiFePO4 energy storage. This liveaboard roams far and wide flying the flag for zero carbon boating, and with over 1000w of Solar, fully monitored, and a silent wind on the mizzen, they tour the UK self sufficient without diesel.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”700″ img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]A campaign for the ocean

A ship-wide refit when preparing this 74ft yacht for Emily Penn’s round the world eXXpedition to study ocean plastic. Remote monitoring allows us to advise and develop measures to further reduce their carbon footprint.

SV Wildheart is a RTW adventurer, a complete LiFePO4 with a full monitoring and solar package. Her owner self-installed with our guidance, one of our ‘assisted build’ formats, a method we encourage for expedition sailors.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”698″ img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]Hydrogenesis

This is the first ever UK passenger ferry powered by hydrogen, operating in the Bristol Channel. The work we undertake to reach net zero requires new thinking. This powertrain and the people behind it are key North Devon Marine Project partners.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”709″ img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]Bavaria 46 heading South

Looking to be self sufficient, a full LiFePO4 upgrade with a custom stainless Solar arch, a Marlec wind turbine and a full monitoring suite with remote tracking. optimised Alternator charging will negate the need for shore power as this yacht tours the Mediterranean.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”1168″ img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]Olaso goes off the grid

A Bavaria 44 with a system-wide upgrade. Shifting from AGM to LiFePO4, LPG to electric cooking, optimising the inboard to take a second 5kw alternator and adding solar and wind. The boat sails with significantly less impact.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”710″ img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]Hybridising an existing inboard engine 

A beautiful example of a Sadler 25. Now trialling a new type of hybrid powertrain, aimed at vessels that do not have a regular dock to plug into. A key next step in order to decarbonise our harbours, ports and coastal waters.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
