The manufacturer of luxury catamarans Privilège Marine is going to show its first hybrid catamaran.

Equipped with the technology Deep Blue Hybrid from Torqeedo, the first hybrid catamaran from Privilège Marine, Privilege Series 5 Hybrid will be equipped with two electric engines “inboard” of 50Kw, of a generator of 22 kW for the longest routes and 4 batteries from BMW i8.

Naviwatt team installed the set of this equipment Torqeedo, or more than 250 m of cables and 1 ton of material. This beautiful catamaran went out of the construction site of the Sables d’Olonne in the end of July, 2018 and the first tries were more than successful.

The hydrogeneration mode allows to recharge batteries when the boat is moving under sails. Like that, batteries allow to make all the necessary harbour laborers with a strong torque, available thanks to the electric engines. Named “Le Penseur”, the first hybrid catamaran from Privilège Marine is officialy in the water and the next ones will come soon.

Naviwatt is proud to have participated in the equipment of this boat in partnership with Torqeedo.
