Introducing the 2018 Cruiser

The Cruiser has been designed with Heat Recovery.    Theoretically, if you can harness all of the heat from the motor, then the system becomes 100% efficient.    In practice, usually some heat escapes through the hull and through deck fittings.    Water is circulated through the gearbox thrust bearing plate, the gearbox-motor interface and the controller plate.    The water is pumped through a heat exchanger to make hot water, or through a radiator to make hot air for heating a room.

Because for a Cruiser, every last bit of energy contributes towards sustainability.

Welcome to the new world of ultra-efficient propulsion for Cruisers.
