“The J/88 features Oceanvolt’s SD6 6kW 48vdc system; which is lightweight (47 kg total) and has full hydro-regeneration capabilities, meaning that you can create energy back to the batteries while sailing using the folding propeller mounted on the strut-drive. Up to 1kW per hour can be generated to recharge the batteries while sailing at 6.5 kts.”
