Re: Beta Marine - New Hybrid System!

The place it has found a home is on certain catamarans where you can replace two gas outboards with one diesel inboard and two electric motors. The diesel gives the owner charging capacity and reliability and no need for gas.
It seems to work really well in this situation. But of course this is not a hybrid.
