Why choose an Electric Propulsion System for your boat?

Summer is slowly coming to an end, and so before you know it your boat will be ready for its winter repair. It’s important to properly service your boat in order to be fully prepared for the next boating season, and this is where we can help!

In this blog we will highlight some advantages of choosing Electric Propulsion for your next boat system.

 

How to prepare your boat for summer 2019?

When the next boating season is here, there’s nothing more you will want than to be able to start boating straight away, so why not start purchasing and repairing your new propulsion system now? The propulsion system is the heart of your boat, which is why it is vital to make sure your propulsion system doesn’t let you down next year.

 

Why choose Electric Propulsion?

You may have heard of the new and upcoming Electric Propulsion systems, which have started becoming a big talking point within the marine sector. So what are the differences between the new electric propulsion systems compared to hydraulic/hybrid propulsion systems and how can they benefit you?

Well, the space required to use the electric outboards/inboards is more compact than other types of propulsion systems, meaning there is more space on the boat. With the new electric propulsion systems there is no direct connection to the propeller and prime mover, hence less torsional stress and vibration for the user.

Additionally, with our electric propulsion system there is a lot less maintenance required, which means you will be able to spend the majority of your time on the boat in the water next summer, rather than repairing it offshore. If that isn’t a bonus enough, the new electric propulsion system has minimal noise; it is so quiet you can hear the birds in the background!

Worried about the environmental effect of your boat?

If you often wonder or worry about the environmental effect that your boat is having to the environment, then worry no more! Choose our electric propulsion system and reap the benefits not only for yourself but for the environment. The advantages of our electric propulsion systems mean they have:

  • Lower fuel consumption
  • Lower emissions
  • Provide a greener carbon footprint
