There are quite a few hybrid boats out there that are aiming towards a more eco-friendly way to propel a vessel forward. However, pairing an electric engine with a diesel engine is old-tech building a true hybrid requires more than just an electric engine.

What should hybrid boats really be?

In our professional opinion, the concept of “hybrid boats” should be paired with the concept of versatility of a vessel or even a boat building platform that is adaptable to multiple types of users.  Water taxi, diving schools, touristic or scientific marine tours, research and marine life orientated navigation, sports fishing tours etc… It is not by chance that out of 13 units produced of the Ethos Ec 30 hybrid boat series, the majority are employed in one or more of the above mentioned activities.

Ethos Hybrid Boats

Flexible Layout and Modular Panels

All panels in the cockpit allow the owner and/or operator to re-purpose the vessel moving all the seating modules and storage units, on the sides (port and starboard) each of those square units can serve all utilities such as water or electricity or be used as storage.

ETHOS EC 30 allow the owner to choose among Open, Cabin and the Lounge Cabin version. Through an innovative fixing system the side bulwarks can be installed by the ship owner in any moment and without any difficulty. Therefore the boat can be converted either from open to closed cockpit. Have you ever experienced a nine meters boat, whose main deck can be transformed by moving the furnishings (sundeck, benches, table, icebox, mobile fridge / cooker, etc.).

We believe this vessel is truly one-of-a-kind.
