Argosy - Hybrid question

Post by Venus »

From the web site link below, ReGen Nautic offers an hybrid propulsion system for Trawlers.

In your opinion, would this type of technology be used on the Argosy?
If so, would you recommend 1 or 2 electric motors?

Every train you see is Hybid. It will certainly work in a boat. If you want about 10 kt, it may be a good answer. If you want 20 kt, maybe not.

For a boat this size definitely 2 screws.
