Watt & Sea hydro generators


Watt & Sea hydrogenerator installed on a custom made bracket
to fit Swan 461 transom
Sea trials to check transom bracket and charge... works perfectly !
Tired with noisy, stinky gensets engines? disappointed with wind generators performance?
Do not want to stop over for re-fuelling?
Hydro generators are definitely the way to go.

Output : 120W at 5 knots (10A in 12V; 5A in 24V) - 500W at 8 knots (40A in 12V - 20A in 24V) - Starting speed: 3 knots.
Tested by one of our customers who owns a Swan 461 and has sailed accross Atlantic two times using all electronics systems, autopilots, fridges and lights without running the engine even once... really enthusiastic about it...
