Value of electric propulsion for sailboats: Freedom of design

Electric propulsion allows for much greater freedom in boat design. If the design’s form function is weight reduction, an electric propulsion system can be much lighter and fulfil all the propulsion needs. Electric propulsion allows for many more systems to be supported by less weight and tech space. It also enables the required components to…

Value of electric propulsion for sailboats: Remote service and system updates

Another huge advantage of electric propulsion, specifically Oceanvolt, is in how service and support can be much quicker and more comprehensive. Because everything is talking together and integrated through the Remote Service Interface (RSI), almost every possible issue can be seen through diagnostic software and services. Anywhere in the world where the vessel can get…

Value of electric propulsion for sailboats: Complete power management

A properly designed and installed high Reserve Capacity (RC) battery bank, when combined with a complete power management system and an electric auxiliary propulsion system, gives many new functions and increases the usability of all vessel systems. The user can have a complete picture of the vessel’s power use, generation and remaining RC especially when…

Value of electric propulsion for sailboats: Cheaper and easier to own and maintain

There are orders of magnitude less complexity in an electric motor (motor) than in a traditional fossil fuelled internal combustion engine (engine). Because of the highly reduced complexity of motors, breakdowns are far less frequent. Maintenance is a tiny fraction, therefore delivering much lower cost of ownership than a traditional engine driven system. Especially for…

Value of electric propulsion for sailboats: Self-sustainable vessels with infinite range

The best value can be realized when designing vessels, and identifying existing vessels, where sailing and hull performance will optimize electric propulsion and the ability to regenerate while under sail. The complete system will combine with solar and/or wind inputs to allow for completely self-sustaining vessels while underway or moored. The hydrogeneration allowed by Oceanvolt…

Value of electric propulsion for sailboats: Comparing apples to apples

Understanding the needs and numbers is very important, and there are many misconceptions around power comparisons. The old way was HorsePower (HP) and now we are talking about kilowatts (kW). HP is a marketing number that is based on the engine’s maximum power over time. This HP number is not completely worthless as it allows…

Value of electric propulsion for sailboats: Enhanced user experience

From a design standpoint electric propulsion is more in-line with a sailboat’s form functions, enhancing both the sailing and motoring experience. Quicker access to power, concise control and comfort all lead to higher user enjoyment, more frequent use of the vessel and ultimately market growth for sailing as a whole. The helm’s ability to start…

Value of electric propulsion for sailboats: Intro

Properly designed and installed electric auxiliary propulsion is a far superior propulsion system for sailing vessels than a traditional internal combustion engine. It also replaces the entire power storage and management systems on board with a much more capable, higher capacity and completely integrated whole vessel power system. The higher initial cost does not tell…
