40 ft Sailing Yacht Equipped for Circumnavigation
We were asked by the German shipyard Sirius Werft, to put together an electrical system for a 40 ft deck salon sailing yacht which was being designed and equipped for circumnavigation. The yacht would feature a full range of navigation and galley equipment including electric cooking appliances as there would be no gas on board. Furthermore, the owner wished to have all onboard comforts independent of shore power and to have silent times without running the generator. A 12 V system would simply not suffice.

Baltic 85 equipped with complete WhisperPower System
At the end of 2018, the Baltic 85 Custom Sloop left the yard in Jakobstad for the Solent, equipped with an extensive high-tech WhisperPower system.
The mini-superyacht, designed by Dixon Yacht Design, was developed as an easy-to-sail, short-handed performance cruising sloop. One of the technical design requirements was for the boat to be able to operate for long periods of time in silent mode or without the use of generators/engines. WhisperPower was approached in the early stages of the project to design the electrical system together with the yards, the project managers and the navel architect.

Good news for yacht owners
It seems that many water-going enthusiasts do not have any or have a very old inverter, and yet still want to make their own cup of coffee with modern equipment. This requires at least one good quality 2 kWatt sine wave inverter. To meet the demand for inverters with a higher power capacity, a new 3 kWatt inverter suitable for 12V battery systems has been added to what is known as our Orange range. The WP Sine 12/3000 is one of the smallest and most powerful sine wave inverters available on the market worldwide. The peak power rating is 6 kW and it is suitable for, amongst other consumers, small washing machines, kitchen appliances, induction cooking, heavy tools etc.. Download our product guide with comfort products for small crafts.
Complete system solutions
We at WhisperPower develop energy systems in close collaboration with the yacht building industry. A result of this is a new generation of advanced hybrid energy systems. With these advanced hybrid energy systems, also known as New School Systems, the available power is tailored to meet the energy requirements of the consumers so that running the generator, which in most cases is a Genverter variable speed generator, can be kept to a minimum. This is made possible by using the AC Powercube, an extremely innovative inverter which provides high power capacity (on demand) and has minimal loss, in combination with the DC Powercube chargers. We, as WhisperPower, are proud that the technical systems developed in conjunction with the yacht building industry are now the new standard. More and more yachts are being equipped with one of our hybrid systems. A great result after 7 years of hard work and substantial investment.
This year, WP Magazine is a special edition focused on systems in which, the unlimited possibilities and diverse system configurations are highlighted and shipyards share their WhisperPower experiences.

Baudoin the ultimate wash solution - powered by WhisperPower
The name Baudoin has been around since the year 1888, as a family owned wholesaler of cleaning products for the Dutch market Netherlands. In 1982 the company was acquired by the van Liempd family. Erik van Liempd, the current owner, started in 2003 to convert the company into a production company for high end window clean equipment for yachts and buildings.
WhisperPower powering mobile bank offices for the Bank of Scotland
Through our distributor Webasto UK, WhisperPower has delivered systems for 16 mobile banking offices. The Cartwright Group, one of the UK’s leading commercial vehicle body, trailer and conversion manufacturers, has equipped these mobile offices for Bank of Scotland (Lloyds Banking Group) with a system consisting of a Genverter W - GV 4 adjustable speed generator, a battery for silent time, a WP-Combi 12/2000 and advanced remote control panels. The feedback from both Cartwright’s and Bank of Scotland has been exceptionally positive. “There is a big chance that we will have the opportunity to equip even more mobile banking offices with our systems”, says Roel ter Heide CEO of WhisperPower.
Great season for WhisperPower Solar Boat
The WhisperPower Solar team can look back on a fantastic sailing season. Following the successful participation in the Dutch Solar Boat Racing Championships, having achieved 5th place in the final rankings and 2nd place in the sprint race, the highly enthusiastic and driven WhisperPower Solar Team took on their next challenge! The Monaco Solar & Electric Boat Challenge. Port Hercule and its surrounding bay, where superyachts will once again be shining in all their glory during the Monaco Yacht Show at the end of this month, formed the stage for a somewhat unusual spectacle from the13th to 15th of July in the form of the Monaco Solar Boat Challenge organised by Yacht Club De Monaco. After two days of racing and despite a malfunction caused by salt water, the WhisperPower boat, together with co-sponsor Libra Energy, finished in second place. The season ended on a high with the Rotterdam World Harbour Days at the start of this month where they achieved a new speed record of 29.6km / h and third place in the timed sprint.
Power and Air - successful combination
Following the first days of Cannes Yachting Festival we can already confidently draw the following conclusion: The combination of Power and Air, WhisperPower and Webasto, together on one stand, is proving to be a success. A good air conditioning system needs a good power system.
Many of the boats on display in the harbour, including models from Axopar Boats, XO Boats, Contest Yachts, HanseYachts AG, Swiss Cat Yachts, Steeler Yachts, Wajer Yachts and Sasga Yachts Menorquin, are equipped with WhisperPower components, systems and gensets. It is yet further confirmation, following that which was recently experienced at the Hiswa-in-Water Boat Show, that the New School concept has made its mark and affirmed its position in the market. More and more yachts are being equipped with a system based on the New School principle. One such example is Steeler Yacht' s “Mighty Mo” equipped with a Genverter GV/ 3, 2 x DC PowerCube and 1 x AC PowerCube 7 kVA with integrated Touch Screen panel. Furthermore, the demand for the New School approach is also high on the stand itself where the Piccolo is attracting a great deal of attention.
The Cannes Yacht Show is popular with Italian visitors and we are therefore delighted that our Italian distributor Bcool engineering S.R.L. is also taking part in the show. In addition, there is a large number of sailing catamarans at the show this year. Sailors of monohulls are increasingly moving over to a catamaran for the onboard comfort they offer and the good sailing characteristics that are known to exceed expectations. This market sector is booming and is also a growing market for WhisperPower. An example of which is the French catamaran builder Swisscat who is installing a system with a Piccolo and a WP Combi.
Roel ter Heide, CEO of WhisperPower says: “I am proud to see so many boats equipped with WhisperPower products and systems. We really have achieved a breakthrough in the world of international yachting. Both our traditional systems (1500/ 1800 rpm generators sets) as well as our Hybrid Power Systems, with high power inverters for extended zero-emission periods, are growing in popularity. We are seeing a similar trend for yachts of all sizes and that is most definitely in relation to more zero emission time: 8 hours during the night and 6 hours during the day (anchorage time). We have a prefect product portfolio to cover this demand."
Powerboat of the Year 2018 equipped with WhisperPower
Congratulations Steeler Yachts! WhisperPower is proud to be your supplier!
The Steeler NG52S Offshore 'Mighty Mo' is equipped with a system based on the New School principle comprising of a Genverter GV/ 3, 2 x DC PowerCube and 1 x AC PowerCube 7 kVA with integrated Touch Screen panel.
HISWA-in-Water Boat Show 2017 huge success
The very last Amsterdam-edition of the HISWA-in-Water Boat Show has come to an end having welcomed more than 20,000 visitors. This year’s attendees were focussed on business and in the market to buy. Out of the approximate 200 boats on display, as many as 70% had a WhisperPower system or product on board. From individual products such as a touch screen panel, a 48V / 525 Ah 2 Volt maintenance-free battery set, a high-output alternator installed on a Volvo engine and loose chargers and converters, to complete systems, the WhisperPower range of products could be found throughout the show.
During the show WhisperPower also received confirmation that the New School concept has made its mark and affirmed its position in the market. More and more yachts, such as the 17m van den Hoven at the show, are being equipped with a system based on the New School principle. At the WhisperPower stand, where the demonstration bus was located, the Genverter Piccolo was certainly the main attraction. It grabbed the attention of visitors impressed with the fact that, with a Piccolo, you can cook electrically on board essentially making the need for gas a thing of the past.
Lunch powered by WhisperPower
Lunch powered by WhisperPower
Seven journalists, which were invited by Hiswa Orange Yachting Group, enjoyed lunch on board of WhisperPower’s demonstration yacht INDEPENDENCE. A perfect occassion to demontrate the “New School” power systems on board of this yacht: fresh eggs were baked on the induction hob and bread was prepared in the electrical oven. All served with hot coffee and tea. The group was impressed by the large number of yachts which were on display in the marina equipped with the new WhisperPower systems. WhisperPower’s CEO Roel ter Heide explained during lunch the great advantages of these new “hybrid”power systems, ensuring plenty of AC power without having a stressed DC system and without the need to start a diesel generator.
Start of show season
Season is started again!
Carlo Huisman on the bike with WhisperPower
As previously mentioned, WhisperPower is a proud supporter of the Dutch America's Endeavour Youth Teams. Since our last update, the two young catamaran teams are now back in The Netherlands with an incredible experience to their names. During the America's Cup Bermuda, they took part in a youth sailing programme. The highlight of the trip was participating in a race which took place during the break of the final races between Emirates Team New Zealand and ORACLE TEAM USA in front of a vast, cheering crowd. The boat belonging to the America's Cup winning team, Team New Zealand, was full of new technology including the winches for the hydraulic system not being operated by hands but by legs. Pedal power generated from specially adapted bikes. And one of those cyclists responsible for ‘pedalling’ the winches was the only Dutchman in the America's Cup, Carlo Huisman. The youth teams had a meet and greet in Bermuda with Carlo himself and presented him with a WhisperPower cycling outfit. We can expect to hear a lot more about Carlo. As of this week, it has been made known that this autumn he will be joining the crew of Bouwe Bekking’s Team Brunel for the Volvo Ocean Race.
On the 7 tenders of the Finnish brand XO Boats, the official media boats of the America's Cup did not have to be cycled to generate power. They are equipped with a WhisperPower complete power system.
Joined forces with Raymarine
Raymarine has joined the forces with WhisperPower especially for the VQ43 built by Vanquish Yachts. The Empirbus experts at Raymarine have implemented the WhisperPower data on board of the VQ43 and created an additional new and user friendly page in the Raymarine gS screens. The entire onboard power supply can now be seen in just one single glance. The amperage can also easily be adjusted on the Touch Screen Panel. It is also possible for the generator to be started via the screen.
Many of the WhisperPower systems components and generators are delivered pre-prepared with WhisperConnect to enable connection to NMEA 200, Modbus and CAN open protocols. In general the WhisperPower systems can be connected to Raymarine screens, as long as they are fitted with EmpirBus (Trigentic) software.
The VQ43, built by Dutch shipyard yard Vanquish Yachts, has proven to be a great success. Based simply on the drawings alone, ten boats have already been sold. This Vanquish took to the water in April. With its striking lines, the VQ43 is mainly sold as a luxury day cruiser but has also been sold as a tender for a number of mega yachts. At 12.96 metres long and fitted with 2 x 370 hp engines, it can reach a top speed of more than 40 knots. Vanquish Yachts is currently busy working on two larger models: the VQ48 and VQ54.
Road Show with EventRent
EventRent, based in Utrecht, the Netherlands, is a specialist in road shows. Since 1992 EventRent has been involved in concept development, construction (support), tour planning, transport, maintenance and management of road shows. Their projects vary from renting a standard unit for the day to managing international, custom productions over a period of years. EventRent has both national and international clients. WhisperPower is a proud supplier of Power Systems to EventRent. The company’s famous Expo Boxes (shown at picture) built by Verbugt Speciaalbouw in the Netherlands, are in general fitted with WhisperPower generator and inverter/ battery systems. A popular model is WhisperPower’s SQ 12 12kW three phase generator unit, powering floorheating, flood lights and airconditioning in case no utility grid conncetion is available.

Hydrograph catamaran equipped with 27 kVA generators
Launched in Bulgaria, Port Ruse, Hydrograph catamaran equipped with 2 pcs M-SQ 27(= 54 kVA), parallel generator system. Built by MTG Dolphin Shipyard.
The Hydrographic vessel for the Executive Agency for exploration and maintenance of the Danube river is being built under “Operational program on Transport and Transport Infrastructure 2014-2020”. The vessel was successfully launched on the 10th of January 2017 – strictly within contracted deadlines, in spite of the bad weather conditions.
We can prepare our SQ 27 generator – both for marine and mobile/ land applications - for parallel operation. In many situations large generators operate half load or less during extended periods which causes malfunction of the generator and excessive fuel and maintenance costs. WhisperPower’s parallel solution is a smart choice, reducing maintenance and fuel costs considerable.

Smart power systems for Shell oil platforms
WhisperPower obtained some nice orders from Shell for the supply of smart power systems for oil platforms. The WhisperPower solution enables the customer to reduce the running costs of the natural gas exploitation substantially, and reduce CO2 emissions at the platform dramatically. As a result, the platforms can be re-build to unmanned rigs, powered by solar/ diesel power systems. Operating hours of the generators are reduced from non-stop to 2 hours / day average. Diesel oil refuelling only needed once a year. Maintenance intervals every 1000 hrs, requiring maintenance just one time per year. WhisperPower trains the maintenance/exploitation company to support these installations themselves. No expensive third parties involved. The various parts of the power system are installed in special containers. At the pictures an overview of 3 containers at the test-side, the generator Skids, the charging system and the battery storage.
