It’s Elec­tric!

Power & Motor Yacht - - LOGBOOK -

Start­ing next sum­mer along the Tokyo Bay wa­ter­front, Toy­ota will be con­duct­ing a fea­si­bil­ity study of hy­brid boats lead­ing up to and co­in­cid­ing with the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Par­a­lympic Games. Utiliz­ing two types of power gen­er­a­tors—a 256-horse­power gas in­board and a 48-horse­power elec­tric mo­tor—the PONAM-28V could be a sign of big things to come across the en­tire in­dus­try. (For more on hy­brid boats, see our test of the Greenline Hy­brid 36 on page 66.)
