Is there such thing as an electric outboard motor?
ePropulsion electric outboards enable one-design sailboats to leave and return to the marina quick, silent and maneuverable. Owners of daysailers and small cruising sailboats love pod drives because they are space-saving, quiet and vibration-free.
How big of an electric motor do I need for my boat?
General rule of thumb: you need at least 2 lbs. of thrust for every 100 lbs. of fully-loaded boat weight (people and gear included). If things like wind or current are major factors where you fish, you’ll want a little extra thrust.
What is the range of an electric boat motor?
The electric boat range is determined by several factors, including the size of the battery, hull construction, and the speed at which the boat is sailing. The most advanced electric boats, like RAND’s models, can sail above 200 nautical miles in cruising speed, and 30-50 nautical miles in planning speed.
