A Feasible Hybrid Passenger Ferry


The Marti Sea Taxi aims to maximize the efficiency of transporting passengers between stations. The catamaran-style body has enhanced hydrodynamics and skates through the water with extreme stability and less resistance. The interior space is thoughtfully planned to accommodate maximum crew and passenger allowances without sacrificing comfort. As for what’s under the hood, The XeroPoint hybrid power and propulsion system for marine vessels comprises a diesel engine and electric motor configured to drive a common output shaft. The diesel engine or electric motor can independently or simultaneously drive the propulsion shaft. Auxiliary generators and optional electrical storage provide power for electric propulsion and power for various features throughout the vessel.
