Hello,

My newest Project is to restore a 1982 Bertram FBMY (Flybridge Motor Yacht).

To make use of the available space, I will be installing a fibreglass hard top. It will have the solar for 12v and 24v, as well as 2 VAWT I am also having made.

The hardtop will have the panels, VAWT's, and required navigation gear placed as seen in the drawing.

The multiple fin style VAWT, should be the most efficient, and in theory should become a post to the wind at wind speeds of 35+ knots to eliminate the need for braking.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The VAWT's are based on a 15 blade vertical cylinder using 3 main rings. Each PMG is 600w and the shaft is 38mm (1.5 inch) diameter to fully support the blades in the centre.

The 150W and 300W panels are a standard Polycrystalline that work well in the sub-tropical area of Hong Kong where I am based.

This should be a very self reliant vessel, and make for a very comfortable vessel at sea, or at the mooring !

Off to work I go !
