After reviewing this web site and the features and function of the HEMP system :-
Interested in having a hybrid system?
Hybrids are inherently more expensive than a standard diesel installation. This is because there are more components. Apart from the engine there is a generator, motor, motor controller, system controller and batteries. The result is a higher manufacturing cost. A hybrid system provides better fuel economy. However in a pleasure boat, with limited use, the annual cost of fuel savings may be limited. Many other features are provided by the system and these must be valued by the user to help justify the inevitably higher system cost.
Are you willing to pay extra ?
If you were to purchase a new boat : think about all the features of HEMP and how they would improve your boating experience. Then decide how much extra you would be prepared to pay for a boat with these advantages
