Visitors to this year’s Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show can inspect an innovative range of new release products from Outback Marine, installed and operational on the company’s all-new Argus E35 cruising power catamaran located between A arm and B arm.

Company Director, Gary Pacey said the Argus boat project presented a great opportunity to showcase these cost effective system solutions to boat builders and boating enthusiasts in a working marine environment.

New products on show include:
• A self-sufficient solar powered electrical system incorporating a split 24 volt house and 12 volt cranking battery arrangement utilizing an Outback Power Systems’ VFX series inverter charger and MX60 solar panel regulator.
• An Empirbus NXT distributed electrical power and control system featuring NMEA-2000 system monitoring.
• Three independent Veco Frigoboat water cooled refrigeration units that effectively operate from the solar powered electrical system.
• A new reverse cycle heat pump hot water system that recovers waste heat from the vessel refrigeration system, thereby eliminating the need for LPG or a generator set.
• An induction hot plate cooking system powered from the battery based inverter system.
• Roca windscreen wiper system featuring a through-glass mounting system and synchronised wipers controlled by Empirbus
• Outback Marine helm panels, power distribution boards and electrical panels.
• A fully integrated NMEA-2000 electronics package including Raymarine GPS chart plotter, radar, sounder, autopilot, engine instrumentation, VHF radio and AIS with tank level monitoring and refrigeration system control from the Empirbus NXT system.
• A frameless glass door and window system that offers a real alternative to traditional aluminium framed fabrication. The front glass features hinged facets incorporating motorised struts.
• A CNC machined deck plug tooling product that provides an attractive slip resistant finish for molded decks.
• A pluggable interconnection system for Glendinning electronic engine controls and Suzuki outboards that simplifies the system installation.
• Remote fresh water flushing of outboard engines.

Mr Pacey said the company’s advanced manufacturing techniques and engineering knowhow played a major role in the Argus Boats development. He is hopeful that other boat and mobile home builders will take advantage of the same product development.
