E-MC 30

A motor catamaran can be much more efficient, and hence more environmentally friendly, than a monohull of about the same length and beam. The MC30 has convincingly demonstrated this basic fact. With its conventional catamaran hulls, its beach landing ramp and its ingenious bridge saloon, the MC30 proclaims, “I’m a cat and proud of it!” . Motorcat 30 has 50 hulls sold since 2001 and this is a proven design.

We start new Project, called E-MC 30, which included  idea to convert MC 30 into electric only propulsion with generator when batteries are low. We found MC 30 to be ideal platform for such propulsion i.e. large roof for solar ,light weight (2600 lbs if made in epoxy-empty ) and batteries ( 16  AGM units of 100 Amp each , will lower CG even further), low wave resistance up to 10 knots ,etc.

An electric boat is any boat primarily propelled by an electric motor. However, there is a broad range of capabilities within that definition. Our goal is to create practical electric hybrid using electric O/B when needed and supplement the batteries by generator when they low. This applies to MC 30 concept.

The main O/B will be provided by twin Torqeedo CRUISE 4.0.
Expecting  performance should be about 8.5 kts (16 km/h) , which is adequate  to Diesel inboard  , which is using about  20 HP for similar speed.

Previous test of  standard MC 30 with antifoul and 2 persons with a single Minnkota E drive  let drive MC 30 with average 5 kts speed.
