Intrepid Powerboats unveils hybrid yacht

Published On: January 1, 2015Categories: Industry News

Intrepid Powerboats of Dania, Fla., offers the first natural-gas-powered hybrid yacht direct from the factory. The boat features fuel system technology from Blue Gas Marine to power its outboard motors. The Blue Gas Natural Gas Hybrid is the first technology of its kind and it was developed by Blue Gas Marine Inc., which is based in Apex, N.C. Boats equipped with the natural gas hybrid fuel-system can operate on natural gas or as a hybrid that carries natural gas and a traditional fuel like gasoline. The system allows a boat operator to switch between the two fuels on demand and at any speed with the press of a button.
