Today and Tomorrow

There is an exciting development that is exploding not only at Quantum but throughout the yachting industry, called sustainability.  The renewed “green” movement has been met with a contagious sense of urgency, coming from shipyards, suppliers, regulatory agencies and owners who are prepared to spend R&D dollars, take risks and establish accountability standards.

Over the last two years, Quantum has filed two new patents, both relating to energy efficiencies.  The most recent filing was the F45 Hybrid – Hydraulic/Electric Power Unit, currently under development, with testing starting at the end of December 2022. There are several advantages to the F45: it is extremely efficient, has low airborne and structure-born noise levels, minimal heat generation and low maintenance requirements. It offers smooth power that does not fluctuate and requires 50% less power than a traditional hydraulic system. The F45 Hybrid boasts up to 60% greater efficiencies, only consuming energy as required when required. The F45 Hybrid will be available in June 2023.

In addition, the XT™ Fin System, Quantum’s most popular to date, offers a number of sustainable features worth noting.  The force per kilowatt is the best on the market, whereby it doubles the force and improves the overall efficiency. Furthermore, it uses a lot less electrical power due to the hydrodynamics of the XT™ Fin design.  Upon reaching their useful life, the cylinders can be stripped down, disassembled, and recycled along with the oil and other parts.

These new technologies and practices represent a major game changer for the marine industry, greatly reducing the traditional carbon footprint.  A new chapter is emerging, paving the wave for a new “cleaner” normal.  It’s about time!
