Electric rules

It’s not a first, but the news that another multihull company will make a electric drives standard in the production of new boats is a definite trend. Such a system has many advantages, and if you think it won’t deliver enough power, well, think again. One of the features I like best is the fact that such a system even generates power when you’re sailing.
“In heavier winds Waypoint often regenerated more power than she needed. When that happened, the crew drained off the excess electricity by turning on the air conditioning and water heater and running the motors faster, which increased their speed even more.”
