The Emax solar-hybrid jet propelled tender is powered by twin CMD TDI V6s coupled with GM Allison hybrid transmissions. Each 450hp diesel electric power plant is revolutionary in the fact that it weighs no more than its gasoline equivalents while consuming 40% less fuel!
When employed as a zero-carbon ship-to-shore shuttle, the Emax Super Marine 45 relies on a 32KWh lithium UPS to propel the boat at up to 25 knots in virtually silent electric mode. Push the throttles full ahead and the infinitely variable transmission kicks into low gear, engaging the V6s and loading the high-torque RR waterjets to deliver unsurpassed acceleration. Once on a plane, the transmission selects the most economical RPM for the load at all speeds up to 80 knots.
Whether shuttling passengers and supplies back and forth or embarking on an exhilarating adventure, the luxurious teak-decked Super Marine 45 can seat up to 10 people, plus four sunbathers on the sun bed. Inside the cabin beneath the solar center cockpit, she provides a shower room with stand-up head and a sumptuous double bed. For excursions, there’s a kitchenette with fridge/freezer, stove, microwave and a foredeck table for setting out a buffet or having a sit down luncheon for six guests.
As a jet-propelled zero-carbon recreational watercraft, she is the safest and by far the most eco-friendly boat of her kind. The EPA estimates that registered recreational boats in the USA produce a staggering 330 million metric tons of CO2 per year. Switching from gasoline to Emax Solar Hybrid propulsion can reduce that figure by over 50%, thereby reducing “global warming pollution” by more than a 160 million metric tons per year.
