Electric Motors for Sail Boats
Looking for an electric motor for your sailboat? We can help.
Sailboat operators can now enjoy fully electric propulsion with our range of environmentally friendly inboard and outboard solutions.
From dinghies to yachts, we have the application 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 a combination of electric propulsion and wind power.
Lead the way to greener solutions on our seas and waterways.
Sailboats are a perfect application for electric propulsion. With flexible solar panels available and wind generation combined with electric propulsion, it is possible to have a completely self-sustaining vessel.
Electric propulsion is a fantastic addition that gives an added luxury to all sailboat users. The reduction in noise, vibration and emissions are guaranteed to impress around the harbour.
Adding electric propulsion gives the sailboat operator accurate slow-speed manoeuvring for moving in and out of port. It also provides the operator with instant torque from stop to assist in quick manoeuvring.
Is fuel consumption better with a hybrid system installed?
A hybrid system ensures a considerably reduced fuel consumption of no less than 15% while navigating on combustion engine power without causing acoustic and atmospheric pollution.
Is it possible to run hotel loads and power auxiliary systems off of the hybrid system?
It is possible to install inverters that use the battery power to supply any existing systems on the vessel whether they are 12V or 24V.
Will the performance feel different in operation?
You can expect a dramatic reduction in operation noise when in electric mode. You can also expect full torque from zero rpm when using electric mode.
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.
