The benefits of an electric dinghy motor

Our excitement about the opportunities of an electric dinghy motor stem from the multiplicity of benefits that these motors bring to the table. 

First, there are major differences between this type of motor and the traditional, fossil fuel-powered motor. As anyone who has interacted with the latter type knows, these engines can make serious noise. Especially on longer trips, it can be very tiresome to be engulfed in the constant blare of these motors for hours on end. Forget about this drawback with an electric dinghy motor, because it does not make any noise. Not only is this more pleasant (and likely healthier) for your ears, but this will also make your boating disturb the (natural) world around you far less, or not even at all, making your own experience far more peaceful and making your presence less intrusive for the life around you. Additionally, the electric motor also does not vibrate in the way that traditional motors do, making it far more comfortable to operate. A further important difference with the traditional motors is the absence of any exhaust fumes. This trait is a true relief, as the electric dinghy motor means an end to sitting in and inhaling the unhealthy exhaust fumes that are produced by burned fuel. 

Second, it is good to know that electric boating is more cost-effective than the traditional motors already mentioned above. Since the electric charge in the battery is converted directly into the propellor’s propulsion, the loss of energy is minimal. This makes the electric motor far more energy-efficient and sustainable than the relatively wasteful fossil-fuel powered motor. 

Last but not least, there is the benefit of maintenance, or rather, the lack of it. Because the electric dinghy motor has far fewer moving parts than fossil-fuel powered motors, it has a very long lifecycle. The advantage is obvious: less time spent on maintenance means more time for boating!

To sum up:

  • Silent boating leaves you and your surroundings undisturbed
  • No exhaust fumes 
  • More friendly to the environment and your wallet
  • No maintenance

It is a good thing that the emission standards related to outboard motors are becoming increasingly strict, and it is only a matter of time before fossil-fuel powered outboard motors will be disallowed entirely. So why wait? Soon, your electric dinghy motor could be the Elco EP-5 or the Elco EP-9.9, for example. Thanks to these motors’ long-range batteries and their digital display, they will take you on carefree boating trips for years. Their maintenance-free designs will save you time, money, and headaches, making them perfect for dinghies, inflatable boats and tender boats.
