One of the original fibre glass cruisers on the Norfolk Broads is about to become the first cruiser to go fully electric.
The interior on EVa May is now complete and she really is looking great for 38. Amongst many, many upgrades during the re-fit:
Her interior woodwork has been re-varnished and polished
A new microwave has been installed in the galley
Mattresses have been replaced with new memory foam ones
New colour co-ordinated cushions
This week we are preparing the boat for the installation of the bow thruster. We drilled through a whopping 20mls of fibre glass to prepare the tunnel for the bow thruster which proves EVa May was built to last.
We’ve also modernised the aluminium windows with a new coating:
Amongst other things we have installed new sea strainers, completed electrical health checks, renewed engine room lighting, started gel repairs on the super structure and are refurbishing the console on the top deck.
Thrust Pilot®, brings new installation option to the market
Colchester, 22 June 2016, Hush Craft is a new provider of electric & hybrid propulsion solutions to the leisure and commercial market. The team has today agreed the first installation of its Thrust Pilot® (patent pending).
This system is specifically designed for retrofitting on existing vessels and in one pod, built off the boat, the Hush Craft Thrust Pilot® can include power steering, motor, batteries, controls, charger and even a generator for 100% redundancy.
Managing Director Ben Simpson says “the benefits of hybrid and electric propulsion systems are well-known, but our solution will bring these benefits to the end users in a neat package that reduces the cost of installation. Our focus is on minimising intrusive works or modifications inside the vessel by simplifying the installation for retrofit. This also makes it more affordable for the boat owner”. (more…)
