OAKLAND PARK, FL – AUGUST 11, 2009 – Hunter Marine Corporation has selected Fischer Panda Generators (www.fisherpanda.com) to outfit its newest and largest model—The Hunter 50CC.

The boat builder, a manufacturer of premier sailboats in North America, recently opted to go with the Fischer Panda 12 Mini DP, a compact yet robust generator driven by the reliable freshwater cooled Kubota D722 three-cylinder diesel engine, capable of producing a powerful 96 amps at 120 volts.  Ideal for sailboats and consumer packed powerboats, the 12 Mini DP weighs in at only 410 pounds and has a noise level rating of 54 dBa @ 7 meters.  It also comes with Fischer Panda’s technically advanced Voltage Control System (VCS).

Hunter Marine Corporation (www.huntermarine.com) distributes sailboats from 14’ to 50’ in 46 countries throughout the world. The Hunter 50CC is a breakthrough boat that defines a safe, comfortable and exceptionally easy-to-sail center cockpit cruiser, which allows for short-handed applications.

Fischer Panda, though its US office, offers the only true 100%, water-cooled asynchronous generators on the market. The Fischer Panda generator can cool the stator winding with nearly 100- percent efficiency due to the unique design of the asynchronous rotor that has no windings, no brushes or diodes. A conventional synchronous generator, on the other hand, can never achieve this level of efficiency because the rotor windings are cooled with air.  That same air is very hot and transfers considerable noise.  The air also carries humidity and dirt into the windings, which increases the resistance and thereby reduces electrical output.

The freshwater-cooled Fischer Panda generators provide distinct advantages over air-cooled generators, in size, weight, noise and efficiency.

Fischer Panda Generators has played a pioneering role in the design and manufacture of marine and vehicle generators for the past 31 years. In 1978 in Germany, Fischer Generators developed the quietest diesel generator in the world. That trend towards small, quiet and super efficiency was to continue, and in 1988, Fischer Generators added “Panda” to its brand and introduced its proprietary and water-cooled, asynchronous electric plant. Fischer Panda U.S., which began operations in 1995, is located at 4345 NE 12 Terrace in Oakland Park, Florida.  For more information, please call 954-462-2800 or access the company’s web site at www.fischerpanda.com.
