Balance Catamarans, a long-time innovation partner with the British based marine engineering firm Integrel Solutions, will again revolutionize the marine industry by becoming the first boat builder to adopt the groundbreaking new Integrel E-Drive hybrid power and propulsion system for its full line of catamarans.

Balance Catamarans have used Integrel high output alternator/generators to replace diesel generators for years on our catamarans but the new E-Drive takes the next big step toward greener diesel/electric propulsion.

This innovative system, boasting up to 30kW of power generation and 40hp of electric drive on a multihull, signifies a major shift toward environmentally friendly marine propulsion. With a focus on cleaner, quieter, and more efficient on-water experiences Balance Catamarans is leading the charge by offering these ground-breaking diesel electric hybrid vessels, with E-Drive as an option on all models in their range. Stay tuned for the launch of this game-changing solution, promising reduced emissions and fuel consumption while increasing performance without compromising space or reliability and enhancing marine propulsion redundancy.
