Silent, Environmentally Responsible, reliable power
Fischer Panda has succeeded in bringing the advantages and possibilities of the diesel electric drive from large ships to smaller commercial and recreational vessels.
The new Whisperprop Drive Systems are designed for boat owners wanting to experience electric cruising. Fully 100% battery, parallel hybrid and generator supported systems are available whether you just want to cruise, support your ship's diesel or power a complete electrical system.
Greater peace through silent cruising
Treat yourself to the peace and quiet you deserve. The main advantage of the Fischer Panda diesel-electric drive is that the drive is nearly silent when operating with the battery. All that you will hear are the sounds of nature. There is nothing better than cruising silently and listening to the sound of birds. The one question you will ask yourself again and again, ‘is the motor running?’ Noises are minimal even when the generator is switched on. Enjoy the natural environment without disturbance
New Design Possibilities
Individual use of the available space It is now possible to create completely new interior concepts when installing a Fischer Panda Hybrid Drive System. The position of both engine and shaft are already defined when constructing a vessel with a conventional system. The hybrid system is far more flexible - mechanical components are connected using flexible electrical cables. The system can be distributed throughout the whole boat - wherever space is available. This gives you a far greater range of layout variations.
Completely new design concepts can be realised with the idea "cable replaces shaft"
Electric power in abundance
Power on board is a true luxury, and it needs to be available (in ample quantities) at all times. Do you want to use (ideally all at the same time) your laptop, TV, air conditioning, coffee machine, refrigerator, freezer and the oven? This is not a problem with a diesel-electric drive system from Fischer Panda. Using powerful generators and a suitably sized battery bank - "Power in abundance"- is available. All the domestic electrical consumers are supplied with 230 volts AC pure sine wave via an inverter. A power supply - just like you would expect at home.
Up to 100% emission free
There are many design concepts to chose from. Depending on your choice of generator, wind and solar as a source of power, you can enjoy up to 100% emmission free cruising
