Brinks Rhapsody, is our hybrid Cruiser which we first added to the fleet in August 2014, a second in July 2015 and the third introduced in 2016. Rhapsody's propellor is turned by a quiet electric motor. At low speed when the battery is charged the motor will drive the boat on battery power alone. At higher speed or if the battery is low a diesel generator will automatically start, and supply extra power.. The boat is fitted with solar panels and has a very low wash hull design making this one of the 'greenest' boats and most quiet on the Broads.
At 44 feet long, it is a large and spacious cruiser but very easy to manoeuvre having been fitted with both a bow and stern thruster and user friendly controls. It has an electric winch for the mudweight, low power LED 'mood' lighting, TVs in each cabin, heated towel rail, a wine fridge,and a wifi system.
