Introducing the Spirit 1.0 EVO
The Spirit 1.0 EVO is the first ever electric outboard motor with regenerative charging built in. This pioneering innovation of hydrogenation means the outboard recharges the battery under sail. Launched in 2021, the Spirit 1.0 EVO is similar in specification to the Spirit 1.0 Plus and with a removable tiller is perfect for sailing boats and sports boats such as the J70.

Above 10 knots the system goes into protection mode, staying at around 300 watts of power regeneration
Recharge your electric outboard motor under sail
The Spirit 1.0 EVO can recharge its own battery for even more sustainable sailing.
Keeping the outboard fixed to the transom with the propeller in the water whilst sailing at 4 knots boat speed or above, the hydrogeneration system creates about 40w of power.
At 10 knots you achieve around 300 watts of recharging power. This is stored in the batteries and can be used to supply other onboard electronic appliances.
