In my search for a yacht, I've come across a few out there that are in need of a re-power due to a dead engine or having extremely high operating hours and my thoughts have turned to the viability of an electric or diesel-electric hybrid propulsion conversion. It definitely won't suit everyone's needs but I would think that there are situations where it would be a viable option like those that do longer passages, just use the motor around marinas and moorings or anchoring, etc. I think the load would also be a factor so electrical needs, yacht size and weight will have a bearing.
