Why switch to an electric motor for your boat?

Sailing electrically enables you to sail on renewable energy and sets the right course towards the future! It also has many advantages:

  • Silent boating - maximum enjoyment
  • Nature is not disturbed
  • Environmentally friendly: no CO2 emissions
  • No exhaust fumes 
  • No bad smell
  • No fuel costs
  • Lower mooring fees

How P&E Lowlands can help you

The search for a suitable outboard motor is a complex process. There are various types and not every electric outboard motor will meet all your requirements. P&E Lowlands is an expert in electric outboard motors and can help you with:

  1. Discussion - elaborate on the key aspects of your specific projects: technical requirements, performance estimations, timing and availability. We love to hear about your ideas about electric propulsion, renewables, hydrogen fuel cells, lithium batteries etc. I'm sure we can help.
  2. Planning - Detail the process of going electric and establish a timeline and shared project board (f.e. for sharing files for component layouts (STEP) and modelling)
  3. Design - We turn your ideas into technically realistic designs ranging from single wire diagrams and energy flow diagrams to CAD designs, complete boat layouts and detailed electrical schematics
  4. Install - We assist professional customers with their installation. This can be done both on site and remotely. An electrical system is only as qualitative as its weakest element. That is why we only go for a 100% durable and safe electrical installation.
  5. Test - Using performance modelling we can get a pretty close estimation of what speed, autonomy and range you can expect from your electric sailing pack. The complexity of reality will always show new insights. That is why we also assist B2B customers, during initial field testing, development and problem solving.

What speeds will my boat be able to achieve?

An electric outboard motor will reach the same speeds as a diesel motor or petrol motor. The exact speeds differ for each boat and depend on whether it has a planing hull.

How long will I be able to motor for?

Assuming a normal cruising speed, you will be able to motor all day. It is fine to increase the speed if you don’t want to be at the helm all day.

What is the charging time?

Did the motor run all day? The battery will require overnight charging. Did the motor not run that long? You will be able to use the motor for several days on 1 battery charge.

How do I choose the most suitable outboard motor?

The search for a suitable outboard motor is a complex process. There are various types and not every electric outboard motor will meet all your requirements. P&E Lowlands is an expert in electric outboard motors.

A brushless PMAC motor? 5 HP to 50 HP? A short shaft or a long shaft? A fixed rudder or throttle valve control? If you tell us what type of yacht you have, we can recommend a suitable motor: a motor that allows the right speed and distance, with a fast-charging battery.

Reliable, sustainable and low-maintenance

For electric boating, we supply outboard motors by Elco. The products by this premium brand are constructed from reliable and durable components. They require little maintenance and will serve you well for many years.

Carefree electric boating

An Elco electric outboard motor is synonymous with carefree electric boating. It is fitted with safety controls that prevent overloading and overheating. It also achieves a consistent speed range capacity. Battery monitors ensure you will always reach the marina safely, an extra feature for your peace of mind.

Which motor is the most suitable for your needs?

Of course, the perfect motor doesn’t exist – there is only the perfect motor for your specific boat. So what is it? This is where we come in: because many circumstances contribute to the exact power consumption, there is no simple answer to this question. Describe your situation in the form and we'll give you advise on which Elco motor suits your needs!
