Fischer Panda, founded in 1970's Germany, produces generators that are smaller, lighter, more fuel efficient and quieter than any of the conventional synchronous generators that use air to cool the stator winding, common in most systems. Fischer Panda utilizes a water-cooled asynchronous rotor that has no windings, no brushes or diodes and the Panda generator can cool the stator winding with nearly 100% efficiency. The resulting small package is small and quiet -- a particular attribute appreciated in the boating community. With an extensive distributor network, Fischer Panda provides unrelenting customer service, greatly appreciated when calling from far away places.

Sailing with « clean-energy » independence

Simple to use, highly efficient and eco-friendly, the Watt&Sea Hydrogenerator is the ideal answer to your power supply problem!

Once a sailboat has left the docks, it’s totally isolated from shore power. The production of energy on board is then crucial to powering communications, navigation, lighting and other energy-consuming devices especially during extended passages!

Founded in 2009 by Yannick Bestaven, an experienced offshore racer and Matthieu Michou, a talented engineer, Watt&Sea is the inventor of the new generation of hydrogenerator, bringing more freedom, comfort and safety to the yachtsmen while reducing the impact to our planet and our reliance on diesel.

Multiple award winning for its innovation, the Watt&Sea hydrogenerator is the result of intensive research. Made of strong material, it easily installs and deploys off the stern of the cruising or racing vessel, efficiently generating the power needed for energy independence.

All Watt&Sea hydrogenerators can produce more power than is consumed by the boat! Thanks to its minimal drag and perfect hydrodynamics, the Cruising models produce 120W in 12 or 24V at 5 knots. Above 5 knots, the 500W generated by the system (40A-12V/20A-24V) enabling you to run all your required systems when sailing and still return with fully charged batteries.

Used by 95% of the boats on the last Vendée Globe Race, Watt&Sea hydrogenerators are fully reliable, while tested to withstand any weather conditions in the world’s toughest waters.
