The "Power Station"
The "Power Station" combines a conventional Beta Marine engine (43, 50, 75 or 90hp) with a powerful brushless generator. At a typical cruising speed of 1,250RPM you can achieve normal propulsion and a full 5.5kW of electrical generation. The Generator can run while under way or with the engine in neutral alongside the bank.
The system uses this powerful generator in conjunction with a 48V battery bank and a 5kVA continuous (10kVA peak) charger/inverter. This provides enough power to have an all electric boat (eliminate gas and cook electric) and run all the domestic appliances you have at home.
The large amount of stored energy in the batteries and powerful inverter allows you to run all appliances with the engine cycled down. You can cook your Sunday roast, alongside the bank, in complete silence!
Select your battery bank size according to your needs and dawn/dusk charging, alongside the bank, can be eliminated. The powerful generator will soon charge your batteries the next time you are on the move.
When purchasing a complete packaged, for a new build narrow or broad beam, the price is similar to the conventional travel power option. With the many benefits provided this is a very compelling system to consider if you are planning your new boat.
A complete Power Station will be on display at Crick alongside our popular hybrid options.
