Adrenaline – Waterwanders

Adrenaline – Waterwanders

"We've been following all of the great sailing Youtubers for years, and one of the things that made clear to us is that we want to be sailors, not diesel mechanics. We recently bought Adrenaline from Tula's Endless Summer and are in the process of converting to Oceanvolt. Adrenaline is a lightweight performance cat that easily cruises at 7-8kts, so regen should be very effective. The Oceanvolt's and batteries are also a weight savings compared to the diesels and tanks we're removing, which will only help performance. We believe electric sailboats are not just for young off-grid pioneers like Uma, but are a perfect fit for middle-aged part-time cruisers too." – Sandy & Monty from Waterwanders
