At this time, when most of shipbuilders and designers are wondering « Which energy for our near future? electric energy? », ahead on all its competitors, STR Europe has made clear its choice 20 years ago and has improved its expertise and know-how and today is proposing efficient and blue technological solutions.
WHY TO CHOOSE a STR TRAWLER or a STR CATAMARAN (New Design)
Here are the main reasons:
- Choices between a composite or a double-hull in aluminium, with a great safety level (comparable to bulk tanks), 100% recyclable
- Acoustic and thermal insulation
- Exceptional 3 cabins onboard a 44 foot
- A new generation design
- A well-suited and customised propulsion: diesel, electric or hybrid
- The electric propulsion will provide great advantages:
- No noise, no vibration, no smell.
- A very limited maintenance (that you can do by your own after a short training period), a life duration for batteries in the range of 10 years, according to the use cycle. At their end of life, batteries are taken off, changed and 100% recycled, with a reduced total cost.
- Cruising speed in the range of 10-12 knots in electric mode.
- Electric autonomy with batteries in the range of 30 to 60 miles or more, according to your sailing plane (zero fuel)
- Improved autonomy in hybrid mode (2000 to 3000 miles) with generator at its nominal functioning point, resulting in fuel saving compared to diesel propulsion.
- An outstanding best value for money with high quality
- High quality finish with high grade materials (marine aluminium, polyester, woodwork, upholstery, etc.)
- Possibility to configure your boat according to your needs, with a cost which will not overpass the total boat budget, and with a total cost comparable or even lower to the most well-known competitive brands on the market.
We propose classical thermal propulsion « Diesel » as well.
