Noiseless, highly efficient hydro-generator from Watt & Sea now available in Australasia.
Kiwi Yachting brings the latest development in European designed power generation to sailors down-under. Watt & Sea offer high peak power output without the noise, fumes, and unreliability of traditional power plants. The range of cruising and racing options offer a yacht complete energy autonomy with as little as 5 knots of boat speed.
The principle is simple, with the momentum of a yacht under sail turning an immersed propeller from a retractable stern leg on the transom. The refined Watt & Sea design is light, reliable and works in with the “green philosophy” of the modern coastal and offshore sailor. A rudder-like bracket and hydrodynamic leg means amps are generated with as little as 3 knots boat speed. The environmentally friendly solution has already been nominated for the METS Design Award and won the 2010 Bateau Bleu award from the French Marine Federation.
The CRUISING hydro generator is a simplified variation of the RACING version, adapted to the use of cruising and racing sailboats. Even lighter, more manageable, more hydrodynamic and corrosion resistant... Result of our experience, the new generation of Cruisin hydrogenerators and its new features meet the requirements of users, boatbuilders and installers.
