Fischer Panda offers the electric motors as parallel hybrid versions. These are suited for operation as auxiliary drives, Electromagnetic coupling is available. They are easy to install, economical and very quiet. They can often be operated on protected waters where the operation of a combustion engine is prohibited. Sailing yachts with a fixed propeller can let the propeller rotate (drag) to recharge the batteries.
