Propulsion

Hull design dispenses with the traditional propulsion (engine and propeller). Concept incorporates a (retractable) propulsion system powered by an (electric) azimuth thruster - deployed to facilitate docking, retrieving 'man-over-board' in addition to conventional (straight-line) propulsion. Electric motor deployed / functions 'in reverse' as a turbine generator to charge batteries.

Thruster located in middle third of hull - forward of keel and mast.
