sure to let us know if you are going to be there. If you can not make
it but would like us to check out any particular products we would be
happy to do so.
2/5/13 Prices Reduced for February Electric Yacht has announced an important pricing adjustment. Over
the first five years of Electric Yachts operations, Scott has increased
systems price twice in response to costs by component suppliers. At the
same time there have been boat show specials offered. With the economy
still limping along but showing some signs of
improvement, Scott is looking to build up the backlog of projects and is
rolling back to the prices when he started the company back in 2008 and
over 200 installations ago. This is your opportunity to save money on a
well engineered system.
Electric Yacht special pricing for the month of February:
5.0 (previously the 100ibl) is reduced from $4595 to $3995
10.0 (previously the 180ibl) is reduced from $5794 to $4995
20.0 (previously the 1360ibl) is reduced from $8495 to $7995
this repricing of their systems impacts your schedule and if you would
like to take advantage of this off season discount, please let me know.
I will provide a quote for your project. We are asking for a
commitment deposit to hold the price. We will be shipping the systems
with the improved programmable system monitor along with the more powerful 10.0 motors.

Update on Second Hybrid System As you have read on the website, we installed a serial hybrid on a 20k pound Gulfstar back in the beginning of the year. That system included a custom 360 motor (48v with 450amp battery system) and a 7kw generator. We have also finished our second installed hybrid, a parallel system that included the installation of a 15hp Yanmar plus a Weekender 7.0 and a 100AH AGM 48v battery pack. Many of our clients and friends use portable generators to create hybrid systems on their boats and these function well within limits. The hybrid systems from Electric Yacht are engineered and designed to function at a very high capacity in the marine environment.
Fluke is our Columbia 9. (31.5ft) and our latest hybrid system - diesel propulsion plus electric propulsion to the shaft. The diesel is also the power for turning the electric motor into a generator to provide power to the batteries and house.
Diesel and Weekender 7.0 installed with Controller mounted on side
The Columbia had been sitting at at dock for over three years without an installed motor. The Yanmar 2QM15 diesel was offered as an option back in the late 70's. We installed it along with our Weekender 7.0 mounted mounted above the transmission. This allow us to push the boat with either the diesel or the electric at hull speed and recharge the batteries when spinning the prop by sail or by the diesel. We programed the electric hybrid system in generator mode to 1.2kw (it has the capacity of 7.0kw) as the diesel does not have enough power to drive the electric at greater output and the boat at the same time. Our next version will increase our options for generation.
