Mastervolt is working with Pearson Composites on the first installation of its electric propulsion line of products.

In November, Mastervolt acquired Dutch-based Bellmann, whose full line of products include drives ranging from 1kW to 20kW complete with matching shafts and propellers, along with control panels and switching gear.

Pearson will install a 7.5 kW electric drive system onto its new Alerion 33 sailboat.

"Pearson sees the future of green boating and the many advantages of a total integrated system solution for the boater," said Michele Goldsmith, director of sales at Mastervolt, in a statement. "In the end, it's all about the boater's experience. This integrated system offers a more efficient, quieter, user-friendly, cost-effective and environmentally conscious experience for the boater."
