Why an electric motor?
• Light weight, portable design, far lighter
than petrol outboards
• Completely environmentally friendly, no
smell, no smoke, no noise .
• CE certified & built to ISO standards
• VERY low noise output makes electric
outboards your ideal fishing companion, you can now cruise up on
that big fish in virtual silence.
• maintenance free makes electric outboards
your choice for your next auxiliary engine - no more dirty
carburettors, oiled up spark plugs, stale fuel -etc.
• Low running costs, with the price of petrol
increasing at an alarming rate electric outboards are the sensible
Size or power of motor?
• 18 lb thrust motor is ideal for
kayaks,canoes and dinghy to 6' and will move a kayak or canoe at 3
or 4 mph in most conditions.
• The 40 ft /lb is ideal for fisherman in
boats in sheltered locations and is the a popular motor for fishers
it will move most angling type fishing boats at 3 to 4 mph in
• The 55 ft /lb motor is again a popular
choice for anglers and is suitable for larger waters and gives that
little bit extra power that can be required if the wind picks up,
should move most fishing type boats in the 12 to 16 size at 4 or 5
mph in reasonable conditions.
• Bison 68 ft/lb motor is ideal for the larger
waters ,sea and larger fishing boats.
• 86 ft/lb and 100 ft/lb motors are 24 volt
(2x12volt batteries in series) and have a range of commercial uses
and can move large boats.
To power your electric outboard you will need
a DEEP CYCLE battery, also known as a LEISURE battery in our
experience 85Ah is an ideal size for most applications.
As a rough rule of thumb, to calculate the
size of battery you need, just take the max amps draw of your
desired motor from the table, and times that by the number of hours
you wish to use the motor. Then add 20% so you aren't completely
draining your battery every time.
So, for the 55LB motor, 52A at max speed, We
wish to run it for an hour, so: 52amps x 1hours = 52
52 + 20% = 63 therefore we would require a
65 Amp Hour battery or larger.
Also worth noting is that current consumption
at slower speeds is much less, you will draw about a quarter of the
charge from your battery at low speed.
