When you choose to upgrade with Sail Electric, you can expect a comprehensive level of services, including;
We provide a range of consultancy services. Whether you are considering next generation energy storage, replacing the diesel with electric propulsion or placing renewables. From an initial discussion we can detail the process, timeline and offer foresight to operate, recharge, and support you, to ensure you are safe, clean and self sustaining when out on the water. It's all in the planning.
A complete overview of the vessel and sailing area is considered. The Sail Electric design team will provide you with a theoretical performance analysis for electric propulsion, detailing range, power required, safety nets, operational knowledge. Utilising renewable energy is key, and with custom modelling we can show you how solar will perform wherever in the world you sail.
Advanced renewable energy
When we launched our prototype electric 34ft sailboat "Nazca" back in March 2021, it was a beautiful sunny, windless spring day. With the mainsail up, the bifacial solar array on our custom designed arch on the stern propelled the boat along with the electric motor at 4knt, using only the power of solar and apparent wind. From custom designs, to deck mounted flexible solar you can walk on, coupled with highly efficient MPPT chargers, and fully integrated, we prioritise renewable energy wherever we can.
