The Arcona 415 is one of the first series produced sailing yachts with electric propulsion as standard. The Arcona 415 is also available with a diesel engine.
Electric propulsion is already available across all the Arcona fleet as an upgrade option and Arcona Yachts is proud to have the largest fleet of electric ‘zero emissions’ yachts on the water, the first being the Arcona 380e launched in 2015.
Arcona performance cruisers will always sail beautifully but in light winds, when you need to use the engine, electric propulsion is the way forward. The design works extremely well with electric propulsion. Comfort, performance and zero emissions if you need to use the engine, what more could you ask for from your yacht.
In response to customer demand, the Arcona 415 has the option of a three or two cabin version with an additional en suite in the owner’s cabin.
The Arcona 415, with her beautiful lines, modern hull shape, open transom, more accessible stowage space and increased light, continues the tradition of Arcona 410 as a quality performance cruiser, built with superb attention to detail, as always. In terms of power, the Arcona 415 is equipped with an Oceanvolt ServoProp 15kW electric propulsion system, with variable pitch propeller technology. It has a 19kWh battery pack as standard. A 15kW electric motor is the equivalent of a 50hp diesel engine on our 40-43ft yachts.
For the propulsion system we are proud to work with Oceanvolt, who represent the world’s absolute top companies when it comes to design and manufacturing of electric motor systems. The lightweight system uses hydrogeneration via the propeller to generate power whilst sailing, storing it in the propulsion battery pack for later use. Hydrogeneration depends on sailing speed, however our customers have seen the hydrogeneration commence when the yacht is sailing at a speed as low as 5 knots.
The benefits of electric propulsion are numerous; not having an exhaust and the elimination therefore of emissions, the ongoing cost saving vs. fuelling up with diesel, the minimised operating noise and vibrations, the increased space for living, the complete power management, the ease of use and maintenance, and having an overall lighter weight thus increased performance.
