Electric boat conversion with P&E Lowlands
Before starting your electric boat conversion, we believe there are a several basic questions that you need to answer, which you can review in more detail here.
- How fast do you want your boat to go? Choosing the correct motor begins with determining how fast you want your boat to go. The hull shape of your boat impacts speeds regardless of your use of a gas or electric motor.
- How long do you want your motor to run for? The motor’s running time is determined by the capacity of your batteries. With our approach, typical boaters achieve 4 hours of runtime. However, as you decrease your throttle, your runtime and range will increase exponentially so your runtime can change drastically.
- How long should charging take? Chargers are designed to match with specific battery types and charge at set rates. Charging immediately after use and using an auto balancing, high quality charger will increase the lifespan and performance of your batteries. Of course, there are chargers available with various power ratings (and charging times).
Based on your answers to these questions, we will advise you on the best electric motor option for your electric boat conversion. As noted before, we offer a choice between electric inboard motors and electric outboard motors.
