Modern Sailing Trends: Green Yachts

July 30, 2020

As Sail Magazine wrote in 2018, it is not a question of if sailboats go electric, but when. For the benefit of our oceans and for boaters who want a quiet, no fumes, low-maintenance boating experience, MSC and Green Yachts believes the time is now. Over the last five years, advancements in marine electric propulsion technology have culminated in lower voltage, higher range, longer-lasting electric motors that can not only keep up with diesel engines, but also offer some distinct advantages.

Testimonials

  • Emma & George Stubbs, Sausalito

    We just took our ASA 106 at a school in Rhode Island as we prepare for 6 months of cruising in the Caribbean. The class was great, but more than anything it made us really appreciate the quality of teaching and rigor at Modern Sailing. Even though we were the newest to sailing, the group seemed to think that we had the best fundamentals. We felt very well prepared and we see why Modern Sailing has the reputation it does.

  • Warren Leiden, Member

    I try to get out on the water every week: out the Gate, around Angel, up Raccoon - I love it all. After 18 years as a member of OCSC in Berkeley, I learned to sail the bigger boats at Modern by taking ASA 103 and 104. My ASA 104 instructor Dave Russell was terrific. Also, Captain Bill Moreland has been very generous in giving informal advice whenever I’ve asked him. Thanks to Bill, I no longer have any anxiety about docking!
