Navico Fathom e-Power
Navico Group has launched the Fathom e-Power System, an integrated lithium-ion power-management system that allows boaters to run multiple onboard systems—such as air conditioning, water heater, stereo, refrigerator and more—without the need for a traditional gas- or diesel-powered generator.
Available in 12-, 24- and 48-volt customizable, pre-assembled kits, Fathom can be integrated into a wide variety of boats.
This complete system—including lithium-ion batteries, sensors, switches and controllers—is possible because of Navico Group’s stable of brands, including Mastervolt, BEP, CZone, Ancor and Blue Sea Systems. An intuitive user interface allows boaters to monitor and control their power on and off the vessel using multifunction displays or smart mobile devices.
Navico Group says that a major component of its strategy for the future is electrification. The Fathom e-Power System was designed to simplify electrification for the group’s boatbuilding partners. Pricing will be set by those manufacturers.
Even without stabilization, the steady picture enhances nighttime navigation.
New EPIRBs and PLB also allow boaters to monitor their devices with a mobile app.
Electric power might be all the rage, but it has its limitations.
Vehicle autonomy on land has led to vessel autonomy at sea, and more practical uses for self-steering boats.
