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.
