Boats and boating have always held an important place within this family and as such, it was back in 1992 when Bart van den Hoven started on the construction of his own 10 metre motor yacht as a hobby. As a passionate master timmerman his experience with interior design came in handy, something that is still evident in all of the Van den Hoven Jachtbouw motor yachts.
“It was in 2016 when we came across the phenomenon ‘New Style of Yachting’. A customer with a Van Den Hoven 21m motor yacht had initially chosen a traditional system. When the power demand was high, the combi’s were not proving to be the ideal mix. The generator was having to run almost all of the time when there was a demand for large power supply because the 2 x 3.5 kW inverters were having difficulty with prolonged periods of high use. The system has since been modified, the Combi's have been replaced with 2x 150A DC PowerCube chargers which are powered either by shore power or Generator and a 14kW inverter that feeds the consumers directly from the batteries. Whilst cruising, the 1650Ah battery bank is fully charged up so that on arrival in port we have sufficint supply for a long period of silent power. A top system! The choice for our latest model, the Hoven Executive 1850, was therefore not at all difficult - a WhisperPower New School system!”
