Watt and Sea – Cruising 600 Hydrogenerator

The CRUISING hydro generator is a simplified variation of the RACING version, adapted for use on cruising and racing sailboats.

Even lighter, more manageable, more hydrodynamic and corrosion resistant. This is the result of Watt & Sea’s experience in product development. The new generation of Cruising hydrogenerators and its new features meet the requirements of users, boat builders and installers:

Available in 2 outputs, 300 or 600 Watt and 2 lengths, 610 or 970 mm, to meet the requirements of any sailor.

  • “Brushless” technology and same material on any model.
  • Converter 12-24 Vcc auto-detected with an advanced electronic architecture.
  • New bracket with its cam positioned closer to the hydrogenerator to hold it firmly immersed or lifted.
  • The locking and unlocking is possible with one hand.
  • 2kg lighter, lifting and removal are even easier.
  • Redesigned with optimized hydrodynamic, the generator is composite with enhanced corrosion resistance.
  • 2 year warranty
