Electric Propulsion for Motorboats
Looking for an electric motor for your motorboat? We can help.
Motorboat operators can now enjoy, silent, emission-free full electric propulsion without polluting the environment.
We have a range of inboard and outboard motors to suit your vessel with power ranging from 2kW to 130kW while allowing for slow and precise manoeuvring.
All our units offer the user low maintenance, reduced fuel costs and operational savings.
Operate in silence, at zero emissions using electric propulsion and lead the way to greener solutions on our seas and waterways.
Our systems start at £9,000 and are available in a range of configurations.
Electric propulsion will some become a necessity for all motorboat owners. The upgrade whilst giving all the economical, performance and safety benefits will mean customers are set for upcoming regulation restrictions.
As well as using less harmful fuels, electric propulsion also helps protect the environment by reducing emissions, sound and odour pollution.
Operational Savings & Safety
Maintenance is greatly minimised, and the frequency of repairs are reduced due fewer moving parts and the simplicity of electric design. Operation safety is greatly improved by the removal of flammable fuels and oils as well as low 48V options.
Is electric propulsion completely environmentally friendly in operation?
As electric motors do not produce exhaust emissions, they are considered a fully green solution and therefore clean and safe for the environment.
How fast can an electric-powered motorboat run?
The performance of the vessel will be influenced heavily by the power rating of the motor selected and the battery packs available. With the correct power capacity, speed is not a restriction with electric propulsion however with a higher power consumption the vessel range is reduced.
How will I be able to charge my electric boat?
There are many methods to recharging the batteries onboard the boat. The easiest is to plug the boat into a shore charging point, there will be different charging terminals for different Voltage and Ampere ratings. You can charge your vessel at single phase 240v terminals that are found at most pillars.
What if my vessel does not have the space or weight allowance to have the necessary batteries onboard for the speed and power requirements?
It is possible to use a low emission genset as a range extender with the electric propulsion system. This would become a series hybrid setup where the genset charges the batteries when needed and the batteries power the motor. You can significantly increase the range of the vessel whilst maintaining low noise and emissions.
Operators owning and operating workboats. whether it be a ranger vessel, day hire, passenger ferry, harbour services vessel or trash skimmer, can benefit from our range of inboard and outboard motors with power ranging from 2kW to 130kW, delivering cost-effective operations and reduced emissions in locations of natural beauty.
Commercial workboat operators can take advantage of our industry-leading parallel-hybrid solutions operating up to 1230kW, allowing users to operate under both diesel and fully electric power. Alternatively, we offer a range of fully electric or hybrid rudder propellers operating at power ranges up to 3MW
