Bavaria 50 Cruiser with 270Wp SolbianFlex SR series panels integrated into the bimini using velcro flaps.
This installation method allows the panels to blend into the Bimini while keeping them tight even in strong winds. Velcro strips are sewn onto the top and bottom edges all-around the solar panel, velcro flaps made from Sunbrella fabric in the color of the bimini are then fixed to the bimini and attach to these velcro strips.
Cable positions and junction box orientation have been optimized for convenient installation and almost invisible wiring, which enters the bimini at the aft stay openings and follows the rigging to a deck feedthrough.
270Wp – delivering around 80-120Ah on a summer day – are usually enough to run fridges and lighting onboard, making it possible to spend many days at anchor before needing to start the engine.
