Efesto is now providing for inboard motor boats two new categories of hybrid power units: one with 100 kW continuous power and 250 Nm continuous motor torque and one with 50 kW continuous power and 125 Nm continuous motor torque.

This hybrid power unit can be installed on every kind of transmission (stern drive, axis line, surface-piercing drives, Ips drive) and it can also be installed on any gasoline and diesel engine with a power up to 400 kW.

The system features two clutches one for connect/disconnect the main shaft and one for connect/disconnect the electric motor: this enable to mechanically disconnect the electric motor when ever it is not required to operate.
