Bellmarine powers classic river charter boat in Melbourne

One of our commercial clients in Melbourne recently installed a Bellmarine DriveMaster 20kW electric inboard in their newly refurbished charter boat. The old diesel engine was removed and it’s now gliding across the Yarra River in silence & style. 

‘Lady M’ is the first fully electric powered charter boat of its kind in Australia. Licensed for 35 passengers. No noisy engine, no fumes and 100% electric to make for a unique cruising experience. Lady M has a large retracting roof, spacious bathroom, sound system and luxurious open plan. The 20kW Bellmarine permanent magnet, AC electric motor runs at 48V from a large lead-acid battery bank which supplies plenty of power for all-day operation  and thanks to the motors high-torque, maneuvering and docking is easier than with the old diesel engine.

Bellmarine electric inboards are specifically designed with the intensive use of commercial operators in mind. All Bellmarine motors come with DNV-GL type approval.
