This motor is now sold but we do have a number of very similar 5kw brushless 48v beltdrive systems in stock, please contact us for further details.
This fantastic compact, lightweight electric motor has an alloy frame for mounting on a standard engine bed. It will suit displacement yachts and motor launches of up to 5 tonnes displacement (NOT the same as registered tonnage).
Made in the USA, it includes an eTec Lynch motor, the most efficient, lightweight type of brushed DC motors ever made.
It will suit any type of 48v batteries – lithium or lead acid.
It has a high quality, side mount speed control lever with a locking collar to prevent it getting knocked.
It is air cooled so it doesn’t require any water cooling system, thru hulls, impeller or filters.
It has an adjustable regeneration function so you can charge the batteries while sailing.
This item is used and was previously fitted to an H28 yacht, where it performed very well. It is ideal for a shaft driven yacht of up to about 32ft length.
The motor is rated at 140 amps (6.7kw). The motor controller is reported to be capable of at least 90 amps continuous output. Higher output may be possible for short periods or with an upgraded motor controller.
We also have some similar 5kw Brushless DC units, made in New Zealand.
Please enquire for full details and an assessment of suitability for your yacht.
An installation service is available and this is suitable for DIY installation if you have a reasonable level of mechanical and electrical competence.
No warranty as this is a used item, sold as seen. If we carry out the installation work then we will guarantee to supply a working system at the completion of installation but will not be responsible for any fault developing after that.
