Well thank you very much for the complements. With out a second thought I would defiantly consider the 410 as a cruiser. There are a number of 380's that are doing it and find the size to be fine however I believe the added space and storage
of the 410 to be perfect for travel. Heck they do it in a bath tub but there's no way my lovely wife Cindy would consider anything smaller then the 410.
Of the 410's there was only 3 built with the electric
drives, all 3 are still running strong One in Boston, up from Florida
last year, one down some where in South America
out of New Orleans
and Electra Glide (our boat) in Solomons MD. The ones that some have been converted back to Diesel
were Lagoons attempt to go electric on there own, the 420's. I'm not sure of the exact #'s but a fair number of them have had problems and mostly do to improper energy management on both sides, the Owners and Lagoon. But if your told the system will do X and it doesn't come close then I'd be ticked as well. I also heard that the hull
redesign for the added weight of the batteries
(a system of 72V, another mistake in my mind) did nothing to add to the speed under sail.
All in all I couldn't be happier with EG. Any specific questions you can Email
