Our newest certified Dealer/Installer! 

Frederic Daillant of FD Marine Services in St. Martin checks out the Thoosa 12000 and Polar Power DC 5kW generator on the Chespeake 32, "Content". Frederic joined us in Annapolis for two days of intensive training to learn about the Thoosa systems. He had hands on experience in assembling a motor system and controller with David in our shop. He also worked with Sally to talk about marketing and sales specific to the Caribbean where he is located. Frederic brings a wealth of sailing knowledge to our team and we are excited to have him as our Caribbean Dealer and Certified Installer. 

The Patuxent Small Craft Guild is well into the build of the traditional Chesapeake crab scrape that is blending old with new. A Thoosa 7000HT system from Annapolis Hybrid Marine will power this beautiful wooden boat. Launch is planned for April 2016 at the Calvert Marine Museum.

We Have Moved! 

We're still in The Maritime Republic of Eastport! And we are still in the historic Trumpy Complex. We are just moving 1/2 block away from our current office location in order to have a larger workshop space for assembling and testing our marine electric propulsion equipment, and a show room/meeting room space that allows us to show off a bit!

New J/88 Powered By Clean Energy!

J/88 family daysailerHarness the Power of the S.E.A.
(Newport, Rhode Island)-  Imagine sailing a beautiful boat knowing that, even if the wind dies and you’re forced to turn on the engine, peace and tranquility aren’t lost.  Furthermore, imagine that every minute sailing, the battery banks are silently charging, allowing you to later push a button to silently power back to the harbor.

A state-of-the-art electric propulsion and charging system from Oceanvolt is now being offered on the J/88, the 29’ state-of-the-art performance daysailer from J/Boats.

“There’s no quicker buzz kill for sailors than having to turn on the diesel engine,” said Jeff Johnstone, President of J/Boats.  “Most of our owners will tell you they sail their boats 90% of the time.  We’d like to improve that other 10% and make it an environmentally-friendly solution for sailors who love the sea!”

Oceanvolt clean-energy power systemsJ/Boats will be installing Oceanvolt’s innovative, fully integrated S.E.A. system (Silent Electric Autonomy) on their first 2016 model J/88 slated to launch mid-summer in Newport, RI and then displayed at the Newport and Annapolis Shows.  The S.E.A system is electric propulsion with a twist– it has full hydro-regeneration capabilities so that batteries are recharged while sailing, with added passive recharging thanks to 500 watts of high-performance Sunpower solar cells (the world's most efficient). 

"For the past ten years, we have been developing innovative solutions for the electric/ hybrid power market in Europe,” said Timo Jaakkola, President of Oceanvolt.  “Based in Finland, a country renowned for developing leading edge ‘green’ solutions, our company has pioneered the use of electric power in keelboats that range from 24 to 55 ft and ranging from 3kW to 20 kW.  We look forward to working with the J/Boats team on their J/88 project!”
