ADVANTAGES OF ELECTRIC PROPULSION OVER A DIESEL ENGINE
Increased reliability, security & comfort... An electric motor requires no warm up time. Just turn the key, adjust the throttle and GO. Power is immediately available, making harbor maneuvering easier and more accurate.
Low weight... The electric propulsion system weighs very little. Batteries can be placed where they will offer better weight optimization.
Easy installation... Due to the low weight of the motor and gearing, it is easy to install and align without the need for heavy tools or a large crane. Many owners do their own installations.
Low maintenance costs... The only parts in the motor which require maintenance are the brushes and gearbelt. No more oil changes! Winter lay up is simple - no anti-freeze needed.
Quiet, clean power... The electric propulsion system is virtually silent, making it easier to communicate. No oil, no exhaust fumes mean a cleaner boat, and a cleaner environment
