Additional Information

Nova Luxe brings you the best-selling powercat in North America, with a state of the art electric propulsion system. Nova Luxe has repowered a brand-new Aquila 44 with two electric motors provide continuous cruising speeds of 6.5 knots with a maximum speed of 9 knots. The light and powerful Torqeedo Deep Blue electric motors are powered by two BMWi3 batteries, a large lithium-ion house bank, a 25kW diesel generator, and a huge solar panel system. These four energy sources provide enough power to run the ships hotel and propulsion needs. Depending on your cruising goals, the yacht can be operated with zero emissions using solar power alone or for long distance continuous cruising, using the on-demand diesel generator, an 875-mile range at 6.5 knots is available consuming only two gallons per hour.

If you are tired of the annoying sound and toxic smell of two huge 2000-pound diesel engines, we suggest you consider our alternative. The 120-pound electric motors provide quiet emission free propulsion and when needed, the sound of the energy efficient generator is barely noticeable.

Nova Luxe provides boaters with a choice. You can now have the motor yacht of you want without the environmental impact of operating a large diesel engines. The Aquila 44 is the best-selling powercat in North America and you can now own one without the guilt of becoming a major polluter. Two large battery banks can provide enough energy to run the air conditioning as well as all of the ships hotel needs. During the day, the custom solar panel system helps replenish the batteries. The generator automatically kicks in when solar is not sufficient. While at the dock, you have a choice of charging the batteries with shore power or with solar power. If you are not in a hurry and the sun is shining, it is possible to run the boat completely on the solar system. When you need to get somewhere faster or for those long offshore legs, the generator powers the motors at two gallons per hour giving you a cruising range limited only to how much fuel you put onboard. The ship’s 300 gallon fuel capacity, can operate the generator for 150 hours and at 6.5 knots gives you a range of 975 miles. For shorter runs, the boat has a top speed of 9 knots. The following chart shows projected speed/time/range estimates.



The Aquila 44 Power by Nova Luxe was developed to be an exceptionally comfortable cruising boat; placing advanced technology at the forefront of all design and build decisions. Luxury amenities include watermaker, spacious salon and galley with 360 degree view, corian countertops, stainless steel sink, fridge and freezer. The 3-cabin, 3-head yacht features a forward cabin that spans her beam of 21' 6" and two aft cabins with ample headroom and large windows. All en-suite heads include separate shower stalls and teak flooring. The oversized flybridge features electric grill, added enclosure and sunpad seating on either side of the helm station.

The world today is different and will continue to change. To see natural beauty you need to travel off the beaten path. When you find the oasis you have been searching for, cruise in silently, observe the wildlife and leave without a footprint of diesel, oil, or CO2.

The ocean and its’ reefs all around the world are under stress. This underwater world is a true wonder.  Now is the time to see it and we have the ability to do so without polluting. With your help we can transition to a cleaner planet. Our goal is not to sell 10 boats or 100 boats but to change the marine industry forever. The world is a beautiful place; Nova Luxe Yachts strives to keep it that way by not polluting.

How much will it cost to convert? Is the most common question we get.  This single question can only be properly answered after we determine what electric system works best for the catamaran and the customer. What type of hybrid are you interested in? Two electric motors with a DC generator as a range extender or a single electric motor replacing one of the two diesels?  What are the speed and range expectations?  Full electric can match the speed of diesels when burning 10 gallons per hour.  A diesel engine and electric motor combination allows for higher speeds. How large should the solar array be?  Where is the yacht located?

Once those essential questions are answered, we have a good idea of what the cost will be for your custom conversion.  Still, continuing forward with the design and planned implementation of all parts will bring us to the best cost estimate.

We can do a solar conversion on the house or the house and one or both engines anywhere in the world as long as there is a good working marina in the area.
