A technology pioneer of electric boating.
We’re proud to have the maintenance-free design that you don’t find anywhere else on the outboard market. Electric outboards are not designed to replace the petrol outboard engine but instead offer a premium, environmentally friendly boating experience. The ‘maintenance-free’ design is what we believe to be the key to a premium boating experience. Owning one of our products means you never think about when the next maintenance is and the next overhaul. What matters is not the maintenance hours you save, but the boating lifestyle that you can simply forget about maintenance demand. You can enjoy your time on the water without spending time or money on the maintenance of your ePropulsion outboard.
So how do we make it?
100% Electric Drive
The Electric drive makes our motors maintenance-free. Our Electric motor features an amazingly simple and reliable structure with much fewer parts; no cylinder, no oil pump, no carburetor.
Brushless DC Motor
Our Brushless DC motor has a much longer operating service life compared to the standard brushed motor. The brushed motor life is limited by the brush type and can attain 1,000 to 3,000 hours on average, whilst brushless motors can attain tens of thousands of hours, as there’s no wear down of brushes. You could achieve over 30,000 hrs of operating life – much more than you need.
Direct drive means the propeller directly takes the power coming from the motor without any reductions, such as a gearbox. Having fewer moving parts means there are fewer parts that are prone to failure. In a motor or an engine, failures are usually produced by the aging of the component (such as a stretched belt), or stress.
*Disclaimer: By Maintenance Free, it means our electric outboard motor and pod drive can keep operating for the regular lifespan, which is around 8 to 12 years. It excludes special cases, for example, anti-corrosion paint loss caused by a collision accident and also commercial use.
