Hybrid Power

True Peace and Quiet

We all search for this at sea, yet few of us are lucky enough to find it. Holland Jachtbouw has been developing silent running hybrid propulsion solutions for superyachts over a few years and have now successfully integrated this into two yachts, providing silent running at night. When the engine is in use it can hardly be heard.

The first system went into the J Class, Rainbow and this unique solution replaced the conventional main engine and two-generator configuration giving her a weight advantage over other J Class yachts. The main engine replaced the second generator with the main generator being a variable speed electric unit. The main engine generator can also double as an electric motor that can run the propeller. As a result Rainbow’s systems for sailing, navigation and hotel loads can be operated from her Hy-Store Li-ion batteries providing a more fuel efficient, lighter and quieter system.

The latest J to launch from Holland Jachtbouw, Topaz has an evolved hybrid system completely tailored to her requirements. Furthermore, HJB are working on two new fully customised systems for two Danish Explorer motor vessels. These systems have a cross shaft option, allowing both CPP propellors to be run by either one or two main engines.
