But will it reliably allow me to cruise in the Pacific Northwest?
With a properly size battery bank and motor, our answer is yes! We have several sizes available for boats up to 60’ and 45,000 lbs. How long you can motor depends on the size of your battery bank and your charging options. You may be able to cruise at low speeds all day or at faster speeds for a few hours. You can also recharge while you’re sailing with Electric Yacht’s adjustable regeneration.
How challenging is it to convert?
Electric Yacht’s packages are designed to make the conversion easy and straightforward.
- Mounts to existing engine stingers.
- Plug and play wiring for simple installation.
- Uses existing shaft and propeller (or update your propeller for improved performance).
- Can be installed while boat is in the water.
We can provide oversight on the project and work with you or a boatyard to ensure a quality, long-lasting installation.
We’ll also help you decide what size battery bank and charging sources you’ll need.
Electric motors come in traditional or sail drive options. See our resources page for detailed product information.
