VEBRAT offers electric propulsion systems or hybrid inbord up to 220 kW for yachting, service boats and river navigation. Vebrat supplies the entire propulsion chain from the cockpit to the propeller.VEBRAT has developed particularly fast charging batteries allowing charging times of 12 minutes to 1 hour depending on capacity. The Blue Marlin prime mover range are interchangeable with thermal engines and make it easy to convert thermal propulsion boats into electric propulsion.Vebrat also distributes the outboard electric motors from 1 to 6 kW from e-Propulsion manufacturer.
A smart designer catamaran that redefines premium yachting. It offers an independent lifestyle for sustainable luxury, powered by green hydrogen and solar energy. The name AQUON symbolizes this state-of-the-art technology and references this powerful clean water luxury.
Neocean redefines water mobility. Thanks to the Overboat, a compact, electric, automatic and ecological catamaran, flying is now for everyone. The incomparable sailing capacities of the Overboat are destined for a large public: professionals who want a very manoeuvrable, silent and wave-free boat; for individuals who want an exclusive experience of flying over water. Neocean combines advanced technologies and the most demanding respect for environmental impact. The company was winner of the Electric Boat Jury Prize from the French Electric Boat Association (Dec. 2019), winner of the 1000 solutions for the Planet competition (Solar Impulse Foundation, Oct. 2020), and winner of the Grand Prize and prize for intelligent and sustainable mobility of the 40th innovation competition of the Occitanie region (jan. 2021).
FinX developpe an innovative propulsion technology that replaces propellers of watercrafts with an undulating membrane, inspired by nature. Coming from the industry and the medical areas, allows 30% energy savings for an equal speed, reduced maintenance (no crankshaft, axis or gearbox), quick start, as well as high safety for users due to no propeller.
« GerrisBoats » is made of a submerged body for low drag, efficiency and low wave formation at low speed, foils to make the boat “flying” and a system of side mobile hulls, adjustable in their position.
With the development of eJET 450, Zodiac Nautic is doubling down on its commitment to keep exploring the future of the boating industry. Together with the world leader in marine electric propulsion, Torqeedo, which produces the electric engine Deep Blue 50kW and with the latest generation of automotive battery (BMW) 40kWh, eJET 450 gets 90 min of range at 24 knots (8 hours at 5 knots). It achieves a max speed of 30 knots thanks to the revolutionary HydroJet technology. eJET has a high quality Neoprene tube, exceptional retractable seating, and upholstery by Serge Ferrari, with a quilted finish sewn in France by hand.
Solbian manufactures flexible solar panels by encapsulating photovoltaic cells between polymer layers. Solbian is not the only one to have followed this path, but it is the first to have developed a flexible, lightweight photovoltaic module using crystalline silicon cells, that are robust enough to pass the stringent tests of the IEC certifications (61215 and 62730).
Solbian uses the best crystalline silicon cells from quality suppliers, however, the various polymer layers that encapsulate and protect the cells are an exclusive patented recipe, elaborated and improved over five years and constantly evolving to keep up the pace with technology.
Ameryachts has created a team for building a 60 pax vessel for marine biologists and students for whale watching activities in Pelagos santuary area. Italian team is Ameryachts/Diab/Gs4c/Sealence. A Mock up will show the new recyclable composite and the installed and working electric pod.
NepTech designs a new mode of zero-emission, high-performance and intelligent naval transport. NepTech’s vessels are new generation catamarans of 12 to 24 meters that can carry up to 150 passengers or 20 tons of cargo. From river shuttles to maritime shuttles, from passenger transport to cargo transport, NepTech is developing an innovative product range based on a common platform for several uses. The idea was born from the desire to combine high-tech engineering, naval expertise and eco-design techniques in the service of mobility. NepTech’s sustainable and global approach not only helps relieve congestion in urban centers, but also massively reduces the environmental footprint of mobility.
