Malcom designed and installed our new vetus 7500 electric engine, 20kw lithium battery bank and control systems for our 31’ Catalina 310.
Great system and we love the silence & clean bilge. We were able to replace the large engine box with a much smaller and neater one. Next step is all electric galley.
Shakedown cruise was 300nm from Southport to Double Island Point return. We would never go back to diesel..
