Volvo Penta’s unveiled a new take on its Saildrive system – an electric Saildrive prototype. Offering the prospect of onboard comfort, near-soundless, low vibration operation, and silent mooring, the initiative is a collaboration with long term boat building partner, Fountaine Pajot. A twin installation of the electric prototype has been fitted to a Lucia 40 catamaran.
The onboard amenities – including air-conditioning – can be powered from the system’s battery packs – in silence for up to 12 hours. This will not only ensure an enhanced experience in nature but also a good night’s sleep.
Depending on speed and sea conditions, the technology has the potential for up to four hours/20 nautical miles of zero-emission electric cruising, perfect for when operating in sensitive or restricted areas. A more typical scenario would be to use the electric Saildrive for maneuvering into-and-out-of harbors, and for powering ‘hotel’ loads (amenities onboard like air conditioning, etc).
