Three WorkBoat questions with Keir Moorhead of Hornblower Cruises

7/31/2012

Earlier this month, WorkBoat Editor in Chief David Krapf cruised around Manhattan on the “space-age” Hornblower Hybrid. The 168’ vessel employs hybrid technology, and has a great design that maximizes views.

Keir Moorhead, senior project engineer for Hornblower Cruises & Events, designed the boat and its power system. Krapf sat down with Moorhead to discuss the vessel’s advanced hybrid power technology system, made up of a pair of Tier 2 700-hp Scania diesels, batteries, solar panels, a wind turbine, and a soon-to-be-installed hydrogen fuel cell. Kier also discussed future plans for hybrid vessels at Hornblower.
