System Overview

• An electric propulsion system consists of a number of components. We will help you design and size a system that meets your needs and provide support through the installation and commissioning phase, as well as ongoing support, as needed. In addition to the motor kit itself, we can supply batteries, chargers and any other components needed. In addition, any of our dealers can provide as much, or as little, help as you need to remove your old engine and install your new Electric Yacht electric propulsion engine

• 48Vdc battery bank serves as central energy storage. Size and type depend on budget, desired range and frequency of use

• 48Vdc propulsion motor provides propulsion power and can regenerate electricity when sailing with propeller turning.

• The throttle control is used to control motor speed and direction. For safety, it locks in neutral, preventing accidental operation. Lift locking ring and push ahead or astern to activate motor. Turn off key switch and remove to de-activate motor

• When sailing, leave throttle in neutral with key switch on. Propeller will normally start turning between 4 and 5 knots. As sailing speed increases, regenerated power increases

• Battery monitor display shows battery state of charge (SOC) and battery voltage at a glance. When motoring, it shows motor speed, battery voltage/current, power consumption and time to discharge at current throttle setting

• A battery charger plugged into shore power in a slip is the most common means of charging batteries

• A wind generator, solar panels or a portable or fixed generator can also be used

• An optional dc-dc converter can be used to provide 12Vdc power from the 48Vdc battery bank
