Wow! Silent and powerful. Put this on a WEBCO 26 and sneak up on fish.

Some day...
Wow that is sweet. Range can’t be much even with a Tesla battery. Is Tesla actually behind this? That looks exactly like an optimax cowling

Needs to be paired with a 10kw Northern Lights generator to extend its range. Pure battery no way...hybrid perhaps.
I would think that mass produced electric OB’s would be cheaper than gas or diesel OB’s.
Does it come in white?

I love the old diesels in DE boats, but I also like the idea of pushing for technology. There may come a time when electric motors make sense if the price is right, solar can be added to a boat, and the batteries take up the bilge instead of fuel tanks. Maybe a hybrid with both will be the future so you won't be stranded out at sea if you lose your power supply. If you are a lobster boat and idle most of the day maybe it would make sense to go electric.

sealence with a traditional diesel would make a nice hybrid, they have a bit of work to do getting to market but the future looks good for them

I can see the head lines now - Family of 6 ELECTROCUTED. Lawyer says in court: "my clients FRIED TO DEATH because of manufacturer negligence".

Just my 2 cents...... but its cool and it would be neat if it could happen.

350hp= 260,000 watts
@ 96v = 2,700 amps
that’s going to need some big battery

Our First Motor​




Our first product is a 350HP outboard electric motor inverter that will propel a 24 foot tritoon to a top speed of over 60 MPH with a range of 40 miles (average). We have built and tested 5 prototype 350HP motors since the company’s inception in June of 2019. The last 2 configurations have proven ample performance for our first motor.

Yeahhhhh! something doesn't seem right here. 1HP=746 watts, or 261KW @ 350 HP. and as the web site indicates it is 400v 3 phase which tells me it's A/C.

I don't do a lot of heavy industrial jobs but my current project requires wiring 4- 100 HP 3 phase 480V motors and they weigh at least 800lbs.

At 400v it’s still running 653 amps. a Tesla can make that kind of Hp but you would only do it for a few seconds. At highway cruise maybe just 25HP . A boat is full time. I’m not seeing that happen for a day of fishing, cruising or towing tubes.
