Marine Hybrid Electric Propulsion For Our Oceans and Inland Waters

Come and see us at the 2015 Miami Boat Show, Booth: I62 – Main Hall Booth

ReGen’s business model is to work with manufacturers, Federal & State agencies and  commercial operators to engineer complete hybrid-electric solutions from the propeller shaft to the AC and DC distribution panels. We provide finished plug and play integrated systems to high volume and high utilization users, who see an immediate payback from the use of hybrid technologies. Due to specific customer demands, we have commercialized the world’s most powerful series of electric outboards and the lightest; most fuel efficient variable-speed DC generators. Our automation controls ensure that all aspects of energy use and energy storage are programmed and optimized to function seamlessly, efficiently and safely with other on-board systems.

We provide a clean-energy source for our marine world

Feadship launched "Savannah," the world's first hybrid mega-yacht.

The average megayacht burns more than 130 gallons of fuel per hour—and that's when the boat is idling. Needless to say, megayachting is not the most carbon-friendly of billionaire pursuits.But now, the folks at Feadship have come up with a more green-friendly alternative: the hybrid megayacht.Read MoreSteve Jobs' 'iYacht' revealed in new pics Feadship, the prestigious Netherlands-based yacht builder, has just launched "Savannah," the world's first true hybrid megayacht. On the outside, the 273-foot ship looks like a typical diesel-guzzler, with five stories, a swimming pool and massive decks.But a peek under the hood (or hull) reveals a ship with a highly advanced power system. It's got a single diesel engine (instead of the usual two), three diesel-electric generators and a cluster of giant batteries.

Some of the Savannah's energy efficiency comes from its highly advanced propeller system.

The result is a boat that's 30 percent more fuel efficient than comparable vessels of its size. Feadship won't give actual numbers for its fuel consumption. But it said that the power systems, along with the ship's ultra-thin bow and highly advanced propeller design, give it a "cost-effective and cleaner mode of propulsion that can be achieved within an entirely bespoke superyacht." Read More$164K a year for luxe perma-cruise Henk de Vries, Feadship's chief, said the boat's power systems can change with various power modes. For midrange and shorter trips, you can use the electric mode, while for longer trips you can use all diesel. For higher speeds, of 13 to 17 knots, the ship can use a combination of generators and diesel, and for top-speeds of 19 knots, all three systems can kick in. The batteries are lithium ion, and are capable of putting out 1 million watts.

De Vries wouldn't comment on the cost or the name of its owner. But yacht industry executives say the owner is a European, who was previously based in North America. The ship took nearly four years to design and build, with more than 1,000 people working on the project.

The room also converts into a cinema. There are interior lighting fixtures with as many as 10 different colors, lens types and positions.In addition to the owner's stateroom, there are four large guest suites and a VIP stateroom with a balcony. The boat also has facilities for 26 crew members

A series of videos will be posted in these pages later this month. This fiberglass, mahogany and cane vacuum sandwiched shell and other great details has won this boat many  beauty contests. Its owner is the legendary Ian Bruce who is better know for having co-designed the Laser class sailboat.  Being also a former Olympic crew and later captain, it was no surprise that he participated last fall in a national all-electric 25-mile boat race. In  the Chesapeake Bay, after only 20 minutes  it had a five mile lead over the rest of the pack. The race committee has decided earlier in 2013 to create an EXTREME class next fall just in case more ReGenNautic propelled boats trouble its placid waters! Worth hearing is the confession of the sailor himself here in our pages
