The Silent Generator and Solar Synergies of the Saona 47 MTC ACTUAL

Virtually Limitless Power of this 2019 Fountaine Pajot Saona 47

The remarkable synergies of the custom power system aboard S/V MTC Actual, the Fountaine Pajot Saona 47 catamaran for sale with Just Catamarans in Ft. Lauderdale is one of the most comprehensive, yet simple power systems on any Fountaine Pajot catamaran. This exceptional sailing catamaran not only features the groundbreaking "Silent Generator" concept custom designed and installed by Harbor Marine Electric, but also harnesses the sun's energy on a custom solar array rarely seen on this size catamaran. Join us as we explore the seamless integration of these advanced systems and their collective benefits, setting MTC Actual apart as a true pioneer in sailing catamaran power innovation.


Unmatched Power and Reliability

MTC Actual's state-of-the-art lithium iron phosphate battery bank includes 20 batteries sealed from the elements in a vented container, providing a substantial 1,000ah at 48v (that's equivalent to 4,000ah at 12v) in addition to a second 12v lithium battery bank with 1,200ah. This much battery power can allow you to enjoy your catamaran all night long with all of your onboard appliances running, including all your electronics, refrigeration, lights, and 3 air conditioning units for more than 15 hours before needing a recharge. This much battery power virtually negates the need to use the onboard 13.5kW generator.

Amplified Charging Capabilities

In 2022 the owner added a Victron Quattro 15,000W continuous (25,000W peak) inverter/charger along with 100amp high-output alternators; together these charging solutions substantially surpass the performance of either the onboard 13.5kW generator or the 50amp shore power service. Enjoy faster and more efficient charging, allowing you to embark on extended cruising adventures with ease and no need to be concerned with power generation or consumption while you sail.

Harnessing Solar Energy

Complementing Harbor Marine's "Silent Generator" concept, MTC Actual incorporates a astonishing 2,275W solar array. These new (2022) bifacial solar panels harness the sun's energy, converting it into usable power to further enhance the vessel's self-sustainability. By utilizing the abundant energy provided by the sun, alongside the new (2022) massive 100amp alternators, MTC Actual virtually eliminates reliance on traditional power sources like the onboard generator, contributing to an effortless and more eco-friendly power management experience.

Intelligent Power Management and Monitoring

As if her state-of-the-art battery and charging system wasn't enough, she is also internationally compatible, allowing you to charge both the 12v and 48v battery banks anywhere in the world with dual shore power receptacles (US and European) that seamlessly switches between 50Hz and 60Hz without needing to change any settings or switches. This means you can easily plug in your devices and appliances, no matter where you are in the world. Furthermore, this catamaran is equipped with an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) system, ensuring a seamless transition when switching from shore power to generator or battery power. Simply put, you don't need to worry about unloading power sources; simply plug or unplug the boat, start the engines, or turn on/off the generator and enjoy sailing without needing to worry about any other steps in the process.

MTC Actual's groundbreaking Silent Generator concept, complemented by a robust custom solar array, high-output alternators, and massive battery banks make this one of the most unique sailing catamarans on earth. With her vast battery capacity, efficient charging capabilities, intelligent power management, and harnessing of solar energy, MTC Actual sets a new standard in sailboat power innovation.
