Same boat with engines would be in the 175K range.
That's a 115K budget for engines and install. Not difficult.

Many GB owners prefer to talior their engines to their cruising style. This way all options are open.

Ok, I'll bite.

In the first photo, you can see she was (is?) Named "watt power". This could an electrical reference and she's missing engines. What are the chances she had electric propulsion?

Right on. It currently is equipped with full electric propulsion. All brand new. this was an R&D project so we are removing the setup since there seems to be no interest for electric / hybrid boats in the GB community.
Hugely popular with catamarans.
No noise, 5 times the range and zero maintenance. Hard to beat. Go figure, but nobody wants it in a trawler. Guess the diesel fumes are part of the romantic notion.
IF you know someone who might be interested, now is the time, before we start stripping it :-). There is no boat like it.

On battery power, on the ICW about 1-2 hrs depending on engine load. Then the generator kicks in (brandnew Volvo Penta 200) , recharges batteries on the fly and powers the electric engines.
On a full tank of diesel, you are looking at about 2,000 mls range. The Volvo always runs at the "sweet spot" RPM which will give it the best fuel economy. It doesn't rev up or down. It runs a 120KW generator, so there is ample power.
On shore, the software can suck up to 50A charge (if shore cicuit permits) so you'll be fully recharged in a cpl of hours. On a quick connect on a lunch stop, you can get your batteries recharged for nil.

After we were done testing, we replaced all systems with barndnew ones, so the Volvo lierally has not been started yet. All zero hours. Ah what a pity to strip it now .

Watt?

Just looked the boat up and found some info. What are you planning to do with the electric bits you take out?

Im a fan of diesel/electric propulsion. Thats how they power cruise ships. If only 2 hours on batteries alone then the boat is more properly diesel/electric rather than hybrid. On a sailboat, the motor can become a generator when under sail turning the prop backwards and is therefore more properly a hybrid. There is no option to charge the batteries uderway other than a single generator. I would want a second generator I think, maybe a smaller get home unit? Or maybe a couple of wind generators and some solar panels?

Hybrid GB: I visited your website featuring this vessel a year or two ago, and found the idea exciting and attractive. I salute you for trying! OTOH, the economic / business case didn't move me at the time. Declining fuel prices have probably made it a tougher sell.

At what price were you trying to sell the diesel-electric boat?

May I also ask why you chose Volvo for genset power?

You must have a very special Volvo Penta with scrubbers so that it dosn't stink like a diesel

No Interest???...man, I'd be all over it if the budget allowed. Just out of curiosity, what are you asking with the hybrid system intact?

The reason no one wants a Hybrid boat is the 1-2 hr run time.. it's not enough.
So how do you figure 5 times the range? If you are traveling 1000 miles you are running the genset all the time anyway.. correct?

And last time I checked the diesel electric systems in sailing cats were also a huge flop and most of them have been refitted with diesel also.

Regarding the sale of the boat as a engine less boat.. your right.. for the right person it is a good value.

Agree with Baker, interesting vessel to consider. The debate over hybrid should be moot, for a savvy buyer. My guess is the boat and systems are in good shape because the owner's been using it as a showcase thus wanted a decent overall vessel. Just a guess though. A good inspection would tell all. Hopefully all systems are in place or readily available to take it back to what it was. Such as genset, ACs, inverter, battery banks etc.

The debate should be what engine(s) I vote for Cummins reman(s) 220 HP rating. While you're at it, new tanks too. Should be good for another 30 years.

We sell them individually - these are high end parts used in electric propulsion.

Sunchaser,
All systems are brandnew. After testing we replaced everything with new components. Not that it would matter though - the engines have a 100,000 hour service inyterval - unlikely the next buyer will ever see the end of it.

No transmissions, nothing to service. Well, except the Volvo. That has zero hours.
New tanks already installed. Full marine survey values it at 175K.
