As previously reported in brief in ‘MJ’, Irish boatbuilder Safehaven Marine recently delivered a Wildcat 60 catamaran ‘HMS Magpie’ to Atlas Elektronik UK for use by the Royal Navy.
The exclusive UK distributor of Village Marine watermakers, Fischer Panda UK, will showcase the rugged commercial standard systems for the first time at this year’s Seawork International.
Fischer Panda UK will be introducing its new lightweight and compact 5000i Neo to the commercial marine market at this year’s Seawork 2017.
Fischer Panda has launched its latest variable speed diesel generator aimed at the smaller commercial craft and survey vessels.
Initial designs for Fischer Panda’s hybrid diesel electric propulsion systems were first introduced in early 2004.
There is growing interest in electric propulsion and hybrid systems for fitting to both sail and power yachts and up until now it has been mainly specialised companies that have been developing this market.
