    I've been researching suitable silent propulsion systems for a client requirements. An automotive engineer currently working on electric drives had heard of a French boat building company that was offering a 50 Pax ferry with 8 hrs battery endurance electric propulsion. No info on speeds, hull design were availible. If anyone has heard of this ferry offering or a simular type of propulsion perforformance I would appreciate the info.

    there are a couple of threads in here where this kind of propulsion is discussed in detail
    I also seem to remember that this boat you mention came up in at least one of them

    it does
    read through the threads on this and you will see numerous references to electric and silent propulsion systems including if I recall the specific manufacturer you mentioned, numerous performance curves are given by several people for several set ups offering 8 hr duration times
