IF I BUY A HYBRID SYSTEM AND HAVE A DIESEL GENERATOR, ISN’T THAT THE SAME AS HAVING A DIESEL ENGINE?
No. Electric engines deliver a higher level of performance, more efficiency (93%), less noise, no maintenance requirements and the ability to regenerate energy while under sail. A DC hybrid has all of these benefits and even better range than with a comparable diesel engine due to higher efficiency. A hybrid system delivers the best of both technologies.
