The ePropulsion is an electric outboard motor that is quiet, but powerful designed for sailboats,fishing boats, dinghies, tenders, inflatable ribs and much more! The Spirit 1.0 motor is the latest in maritime propulsion technology plus it's revolutionizing the way seafarers navigate the open waters. Thanks to its impressive capacity, you can drive your vessel further, faster, and with greater freedom than ever before – all while saving fuel and reducing pollutants. With its special design and smart technology, you can manage and extend the running time of your motor with ease. Now - let's look at some of the unique features to really show you the benefits of an electric motor, specifically the ePropulsion!
● Energy-efficient motor
● Uses a battery to store energy
● Requires much less fuel than standard gas powered motors
ePropulsion is a maritime propulsion system that uses an electric motor to power your vessel, rather than the common gas-powered motor. Our energy-efficient motor operates by using a battery to store energy and then powers the electric motor. The motor is connected to the propeller and pushes the boat forward, but our system requires much less fuel than a standard gas-powered motor. Not only do our ePropulsion motors help reduce pollutants that typical gas-powered motors emit, but there are many other benefits our system has to offer.
Improved Safety and Maintenance
Gas-powered engines can produce harmful fumes that negatively impact the environment and those who live in it. Our ePropulsion systems are designed with preservation of the environment in mind, thus reducing the risk of pollutants that are frequently emitted into the water during boating ventures, such as those effused from gas-powered engines on a daily basis.
In addition, our systems do not require the over abundance of fuel that gas-engines require, consequently lowering the risk of possible flame-ignition on board your vessel.
As an added bonus, our systems are easier to maintain than gas-powered motors; to best maintain the system, prioritize keeping the propeller properly cleaned of debris and other possible chaff, and be sure to regularly charge the battery.
How to Differentiate Between the Systems
Today, there are many different propulsion systems to choose from, which can make it challenging to decide which is the most suitable and sustainable for your needs. When selecting an option, consider the following factors:
Power Requirements- ePropulsion systems are available in a multitude of power options, ranging from 2kW to 10kW. It is important to note that various boat sizes do require diverse levels of propulsion, so be sure to be mindful when deciding which option is right for you.
Range- ePropulsion systems offer a large selection of battery sizes when making your selection, ranging from 2kWh to 10kWh. Keep in mind that the battery size affects the charging time; some systems can be fully charged in as little as four hours, while others can take up to eight hours.
Cost- ePropulsion systems can vary in price range. When determining which system is the most cost-effective for your needs, remember to be mindful of the following factors: Battery efficiency, charging equipment and maintenance costs.
Propeller- ePropulsion systems offer two main types of propellers: Fixed pitch and variable pitch. Both propeller options offer some advantages and disadvantages for boaters to consider.
For example, when comparing the two, it is important to note that fixed pitch propellers are less expensive than variable pitch propellers; however, fixed pitch will use more power and produce more noise than variable pitch propellers.
On the other hand, variable-pitch propellers are more expensive than fixed pitched propellers, yet they are more efficient because they use less power and produce less noise . Keep this in mind when determining which type of propeller is right for your boating needs.
3At TB Nation, we understand that time is money, and our fuel efficient systems provide boaters the opportunity to travel further, but with less fuel consumption. Our ePropulsion system is much more efficient than the traditional gas-powered engine because less fuel is required. Gas-powered engines typically have an efficiency of 25-30%, however; our ePropulsion system offers an efficiency of up to 80%. Still not convinced?
