Amel 50 custom very thin panels from Solbian - 575 watts on the hardtop. These were custom-made by Solbian.
More here about this Amel 50, which will be at the Anappolis Boat Show in October:
Solbian offers these panels in standard sizes with a zipper attached to the panel to aid in the ease of a soft-top install
I havet Victron MPPT controllers, currently 4 of Them so havet hade good opportunity's to compare the differens between serie and parallel. Where I saw the smallest difference was on the stern arc which is less prone to shadow. When changing the rail mounted from serie to parallel the difference in production was very substantial.
Very often there are at least partly shadow on one of the rail mounted panels. For panels on the Bimini shadow will always be a big issue
