Inventor of a new generation of hydrogenerator

Bainbridge is a proud distributor of Watt&Sea hydrogenerators, offering a key solution to produce energy offshore. While respectful of the environment, they offer the best system for cruising or racing with freedom and safety.

Designed in 2008 and continually improved since, the watt&sea hydrogenerators have radically changed energy management on board. They allow nothing less than the total autonomy of sailing boats!
