In fact, comfort, simplified maintenance and savings on hidden costs are the real motivations. It is therefore advisable to be accompanied and to practice electric navigation at sea to start. It is only once your navigation program has been validated that you will be able to size the motor and the battery that go with it.
To convert your boat, you'll need to carefully select the various components of your new propulsion system, such as the motor and batteries.
This electric POD motor from Torqeedo is suitable for many sailing boats. It also has an optional duckbill propeller.
