Way of the future isn't that new.

While having electric motors with diesel generators is new for sailboats I guess, it's been around. All those train engines are electric with diesel generators. And Submarines were diesel/electric but of course are now Nuclear/electric (as well as the cruisers and carriers). The subs still have backup diesel generators just in case of a meltdown
