New ePropulsion products, prices and support for 2023
Welcome to our Spring 2023 update. Don’t worry we don’t plan to bombard your inbox with offers, this is a quarterly update to let you know about some of the new ePropulsion products and services that we will be able to support you with this season. In this addition you will find details about some new ePropulsion products that are designed for larger craft, an update to 2023 prices, details for a new eTransition workshop we are running in the South Hams and some latest electric conversion case-studies that might inspire you.
I look forward to sharing these updates with you and have a very enjoyable season on the water.

New ePropulsion Pod Drive 10 kW announced
The new ePropulsion Pod Drive 10kW has been unveiled.
Designed to propel medium sized yachts and sailboats up to 10 tonnes, the POD drive 10kW is ideal for boats such as a 35’ sailing yacht and can be fitted as twin Pods for larger boats and catamarans.
New ePropulsion Electric Inboard I-Series
The ePropulsion I-Series electric inboard motors offer a range of power inputs and can be easily connected to a shaft drive propeller. These smart intelligent inboards include ePropulsion’s ADAS (Advance Drive Assistance System) that enhances safety and intuitive driving. In addition, a proprietary integrated Connectivity Service and Boating IoT enables owners to remotely access onboard data from anywhere.
Surprisingly compact, these cutting-edge inboard motors offer clean, efficient and quiet boating. Designed with boat builders in mind, they are easy to install and to convert existing yachts to electric propulsion.
With built in hydrogeneration, when fitted on sailing boats the motors can recharge whilst under sail. The I-Series electric inboard motors are available in three models, the I-10, I-20 and I-40, with a power input of 10kW, 20kW and 40kW respectively. The I-Series motors are designed to work with the ePropulsion G102-100 batteries.

Electric Transition Workshop at South Devon Marine Academy
We recently secured funding from South Hams District Council Climate Change Fund to organise an electric transition workshop to be held at the South Devon College Marine Academy, Noss on Dart, on Friday 28th April 2023, to discuss and engage in activities surrounding Electric propulsion in the marine leisure, recreation and tourism sectors. This is a one-day workshop with live on water demonstrations.
New: Blue Electric Bag Sets for ePropulsion Spirit Outboards
It’s been difficult to get the ePropulsion Spirit bag sets from China, so we have copied them and are now making our own in the UK. If you would like to purchase a Bag Set (motor and battery) for your Spirit outboard drop me a line.
Thinking of converting your vessel to electric
If you are thinking of doing an electric conversion to your existing vessel, there are some good case-studies now on YouTube and also a few on ePropulsion UK. We will be adding more to these as the season goes on.
