Hybrid Monte Fino 80
Monocle Fractional Yachts has added an 80-foot Monte Fino motoryacht and a 58-foot Donzi sportfishing yacht to its fleet, with both yachts having hybrid propulsion systems by ReGen Nautic.
“We have all seen the steady rise and success of hybrid car sales over the past several years, and we wanted to bring the same benefits to our clients and to the yachting segment we cater to: reduced fuel consumption, environmentally friendly operation, less noise and pollution, smart systems and (compared to conventional diesel power) much longer component life and far fewer repairs that equates to less downtime,” Loren Simkowitz, founder and president of Monacle, stated in a press release.
The ReGen Nautic systems combine electric motors, generators and batteries into a “hybrid square” that is managed by a switching box and automated programming to transition among power states underway.
