OCEANVOLT SD SAIL DRIVE MOTORS
The silence of an Oceanvolt electric propulsion is a skipper’s dream. Whether quietly maneuvering through a harbor or motor-sailing on low-wind days to create your own apparent wind, Oceanvolt electric solutions will enhance and extend your sailing enjoyment.
Oceanvolt offers a range of sail drive motors to provide propulsion and hydro generation for vessels ranging from 15 to 80 feet.
- Synchronous permanent magnet electric motor.
- Sail Drive with 1.93:1 reduction.
- Lightweight: weighs as little as 42.5kg (motor & sail drive).
- The only complete electric inboard propulsion system with
- EMC certified closed circulation liquid cooling providing both cooling and lubrication.
- Functions as a hydro generator to generate power while under sail.
Oceanvolt systems are scaled and configured to achieve maximum efficiency – taking into consideration boat length, beam and displacement as well as system weight and placement within the boat. Range, beyond battery capacity, is extended through hydro generation while sailing above 6kn. This can be complemented with either a portable AC generator or a DC generator (in larger boats or for long distance cruising).
All Oceanvolt systems are engineered to operate at 48 volts for passenger safety and ease of repair. Oceanvolt systems are extremely low maintenance and do not require winterizing (no annual engine maintenance/storage costs).
