Aquair 100 - 12v water mode unit with propeller shaft.

Postby FullCircle » Thu Mar 13, 2014 11:40 pm

I have a used Aquair 100 generator unit with the standard propeller shaft and swivels, including the gimbal ring to mount this on the pushpit rail.
The standard propeller is good for average boat speeds of no more than 7 knots.
I will also include a waterproof Deck Plug & Socket.

One mounting bush on the casting was damaged, and was professionally repaired/welded to a good standard.

Also included is the manufacturers original manual.

There is no tow rope with this unit.

You will need 30m of 18mm braid on braid for it.

According to the manual, it produces 5 amps at 5 knots.

A wind kit is available for mounting in the rigging, but is not in this sale.
They are around £1000 new

I would like £400 for the kit

Can post to most places for around £10

From their site:

Sailing downwind at 6 knots, the Aquair 100 water drive generates approximately 5 amps continuous charge. To obtain 5 amps at 12 Volts of generation from the wind driven version while underway, the wind speed required is typically 30 knots (24 knots plus 6 knots boat speed).

Water mode.

The Aquair 100 is designed for yachts cruising at 4-7 kts. The standard pitch turbine surfaces at 7-8 kts and skips at higher speeds. The coarse pitch turbine suits yachts which sail at 8-12 kts. The shaft connector is designed to break to save the
generator and rail if the turbine becomes trapped. At normal cruising speeds the turbine will not noticeably slow the yacht.

Please PM if interested.
