The Oceanvolt SEA 60® is a complete electric motor system designed for catamarans between 60 to 85 feet. The system is equivalent to a 155 HP diesel engine system. The biggest electric powered leisure sail yacht in the world, the Coboat, is powered by an Oceanvolt SEA 60® system.
The Coboat is a retrofitted Nautitech 82 sailing catamaran and floating coworking space. Circumnavigating the globe and exploring uncharted waters, Coboat will be home and office for up to 12 digital nomads as they collectively set out on a sea-faring adventure combining life, work and play. In addition to propulsion, the Coboat will be able to generate up to 16 kW of regeneration power when the motors are used as generators under sail – this is the first time ever when such a high amount of hydro energy is created on a leisure sailboat.
