Low budget EcoDrive kit now available
For boat owners on a limited budget we have the EcoDrive kit available. It comes standard as a 2.0kW motor (equivalent to 6HP diesel engine) but can be supplied at lower or higher power ratings as well or even as a hybrid. The kit comprises of the electric motor, controller, wiring harness, throttle and circuit breaker and key switch. To complement the kit we can supply a thrust bearing and sprockets/bushes for a reduction gear or drive belt if required.
This EcoDrive kit was DIY installed by one of clients from Western Australia in a beautiful self-built timber clinker-style boat. With a length of 5.5m and displacement of just under 1 ton this craft is a perfect match for the EcoDrive. Paired with a 48V / 225Ah AGM deep-cycle battery bank a pleasant 6 hours at cruising speed of 4 knots can be enjoyed in complete silence.
The EcoDrive is based on a permanent magnet synchronous motor with a low RPM and high torque. It’s compact, lightweight and powerful. It’s easy to install and virtually maintenance free.
The EcoDrive is available from as little as $3,490 and can be delivered nationwide. Contact us for more information or a complete quote including batteries, charger & solar panels.
