EFOY Comfort Fuel Cell
As well as allowing a cruiser to enjoy a peaceful evening in a quite anchorage, fuel cells for boats can also give the offshore racer an advantage. Installing a fuel cell in your racing yacht can remove the need to regularly monitor battery voltage in order to run the engine or generator to charge the battery. This means you can get on and race!
In addition to removing this worry, marine fuel cells also have the potential to save weight:
- You can carry less diesel
- If you were considering a separate generator, these are lighter
- They have no servicing requirement
- You may be able to remove one of your domestic batteries
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
Lizzy Foreman - Mini Transat 2015
"I find the Fuel Cell an extremely reliable, essential piece of equipment onboard my Mini 6.50. During races I hardly have to worry about the state of my batteries; the Fuel Cell automatically kicks in when the power onboard is low, while the methanol cartridges are easy to store and change. It is a very quiet, clean and efficient way to recharge the batteries onboard."
Nikki Curwen - Mini Transat 2015
"The Fuel Cell is a brilliant bit of kit, with an automatic kick in, which monitors your battery levels and turns on when it’s needed. Meaning you just don’t have to think about it, you can rely on it to look after everything for you."
Brian Thompson - Round Ireland Record and the Round Ireland Race
You’ve been on your yacht sailing all day and you arrive in lovely bay with only a few other boats. You drop the anchor, switch on the anchor light and settle down for a well deserved drink when you hear the battery alarm go off. The wind has dropped and the sun is setting so your wind generator and solar panel are useless. Your only option now is to run your engine for a few hours, ruining the relaxing atmosphere and disturbing your neighbours. Sound familiar?
Fuel cells offer the perfect solution to the ever growing need for on-board power. Unlike solar and wind they run throughout the day and unlike your engine, they’re near silent.
