Transform your combustion boat into an electric boat
Why retrofitting your boat to electric?
Have you ever experienced the pleasure of driving an electric car? Are you fed up with fuel leaks in the holds of your boat, with repeated engine breakdowns? Do you want the best: the pleasure of silent and odourless sailing with environmental protection?
SeaZen accompanies you from advice to the installation of an electric motorisation for your boat with professional guarantees.
What is the autonomy of an electric boat?
This is the most frequently asked question. Before answering this question it is fundamental to realise that you will probably not sail as you used to. You will discover a new pleasure of sailing... so much more Zen. Switching to electricity is also a change of use to be taken into account before any comparison.
In the majority of uses, electric power lends itself quite well to an outing for a few hours anchorage. There is no problem of autonomy. If you are sailing or solar-powered, the energy generated allows even experienced sailors to sail coastal or ocean crossings in total autonomy.
In the end, the duration of your boat's autonomy will depend on the type of engine you choose and the use you make of it. We are here to advise you in order to adapt the solution to your navigation needs and desires, in complete safety.
How are you going to accompany me in my project?
We will first advise you by carrying out a diagnosis of your needs. We are also the only ones who can offer you an initiation on an electric boat at sea. Then, if you wish to go further, we will provide you with the engine equipment, battery and charger and carry out the installation with a professional guarantee.
Our strength? We have shared the electric navigation experience with more than 4000 visitors at Beaulieu and Juan les Pin. Our partnership with the leader Torqeedo goes back to 2015 and their motors are guaranteed for 2 years. Our team of electricians know our products, carry out the assembly in the best professional manner and provide you with professional warranty.
2 test centres at sea for electric navigation
Knowing that switching to electric power also means opting for a new style of navigation, you will want to discover this experience in real conditions with your family and friends. We operate rentals by hours from our base in Beaulieu with 24V Lithium batteries, and from our base in Juan les Pins with 48V Silicone Gel batteries. Being convinced that solar boating is one of the solutions to the climatic challenges, we will reimburse you for this first 1Hr outing as soon as you confirm the purchase of an equipped motor. Simply let us know about your projet before you make your reservation, then we will organise together the outing of your choice.
Which electrical installation should I choose for my boat?
There is a wide range of solutions depending on the size of your boat and your installation: outboard motor, inboard motor with shaft, sail drive. Here is an indication of the most common solutions.
|Tonnage||3 T||5 T||10 T|
|Thermal engine*||6 CV||9,9 CV||25 CV|
|Electric motor**||2 kW||4 kW||10 kW|
|Yield||56 %||56 %||56 %|
|Electric circuit||24 V||48 V||48 V|
* due to friction and exhaust your current efficiency with a combustion engine may not exceed 5%.
** electric kW can be compared to thermal CVs by measuring the thrust of the propeller.
More than 30 references of motors and batteries are available to order, we also have second-hand models. We are at your disposal to advise you and help you choose the configuration that best suits your needs. Do not hesitate to contact us.
