Off the grid
Deep Blue Hybrid
Energy & Propulsion
MOONWAVE offers minimal reliance on fossil fuels and maximum off-the-grid capabilities, demonstrating around-the-world shorthanded cruising success under optimized hybrid propulsion and renewable energy systems. Torqeedo’s DEEP BLUE HYBRID is the first fully integrated system on the market that combines a hybrid drive system with the entire onboard energy management, a turnkey solution that guarantees compliance with the relevant norms and standards. High-end components were carefully selected and coordinated as a system, with essential inspections and certifications performed at the system level. At the same time, DEEP BLUE HYBRID was developed based on modular components to remain both scalable and reliable.
The Deep Blue Hybrid System from Torqeedo features electric propulsion and big battery capacity for quiet operation. Renewable energy sources include new solar panels installed on the coach roof in 2022 and hydro regeneration via folding propellors to generate energy while sailing (propeller folds during sailing to eliminate drag). The large capacity battery pack (BMW i3 battery upgrade) is proven to sufficiently power the Moonwave cruising program while at anchor, without engine noise. Batteries can also be charged by generator in less than one hour.
Putting the thrill of sailing into cruising
The design of the Gunboat 60 applied all of Gunboat’s learning from over two million sea miles with its earlier 62’ and 66’ series. The Gunboat 60 featured supreme sailing performance with her all carbon and epoxy construction, and took interior design and comfort to new levels for extended liveaboard cruising. Perfectly sized to take advantages of a lot of benefits that we have learned occur at 60′ – Smooth motion, incredible spaces and the potential for 300+ mile daily runs combine to make the Gunboat 60 exceptional.
Optimized for world cruising with extensive upgrades throughout. MOONWAVE comes equipped with a new sail wardrobe, ECSix standing rigging, a race boat running rigging package, and comprehensive service records. The highly experienced owner and professional captain worked with the best in the industry to perfect a custom steering system, rudders, daggerboards, titanium saildrives, titanium rudder bearings, hydraulic upgrades and more. The new owner will be delighted with the level of detail they find on this highly optimized Gunboat 60!
