Electric Outboard Motors
Electric Outboard Motors have rapidly risen in popularity, largely thanks to low running costs and no maintenance requirements, unlike petrol-powered outboard engines which require yearly servicing, and costly fuel to keep them running.
Electric boat motors are quieter, lighter, better for the environment and more convenient - plus, the throttle response is instantaneous, with engines including ePropulsion Spirit Electric Outboard and Torqeedo Travel Electric Outboard Engine also featuring solar charging capabilities, which is great if you're ever running low on power.
Best Electric Outboard Motor
The best electric outboard engine is ePropulsion Spirit Electric Outboard Motor - a lightweight and portable outboard engine suitable for dinghies, fishing boats, sailboats and tenders. The electric boat motor weighs just 20kg (including the battery) and offers a range of up to 22 miles.
The Spirit Evo model features a world first: hydrogeneration. This enables the electric outboard to charge its own battery when wind is being used to propel the boat - further increasing the range. Water spins the propeller, which in turn spins the motor, resulting in electricity going back into the battery.
