Cruising in Comfort

Hydrogenerators are devices, often affixed to the stern of cruising sailboats or watercraft, that feature a reverse prop which rotates when towed. This rotation generates power to charge an on-board energy storage system, and can increase with cruising speed and propeller size.

Once a clumsy and cumbersome product, modern hydrogenerators are anything but: they're easy to install, they can feature dual-use as an electric outboard motor (see: the ePropulsion Evo Series), they require little to no maintenance, and they feature only negligible drag!
