Powerboat - Circumnavigation

40-50 ft motoryacht

As you explore the world for weeks or even months at a time, shore power is in general not available. Nonetheless, you are not prepared to economise on luxury onboard facilities. Due to the high consumption of onboard items such as the air conditioning we have selected a generator that can easily supply all AC consumers.

When the generator is not switched on, for example at night, the batteries supply the required capacity. The size of the battery set depends on your specific requirements.

Sail - Blue water

60ft+ motoryacht

You make long sailing trips and have plans for a trip around the world. All extended voyages require careful preparation and route planning, plus the right equipment onboard. Your electric system needs a great deal of attention, not least because you will be using many consumers throughout the vessel and have specific power facilities such as the navigation system to cater for.

Issues of redundancy are also a vital consideration should a calamity occur. By intelligently separating consumers, for example forward, amidships and aft, you ensure maximum continuity and know that any possible disruption need not totally shut everything down at the same time.
