ePropulsion Pod Drive Electric Motors

Pod Drive electric motors offer a simple to install solution making them ideal for both new build boats and electric conversion projects. They are super quiet with absolutely minimal vibration since the motor is mounted directly under the hull - no need to precisely align a shaft.

At the core of the ePropulsion engine is the advanced brushless direct drive technology - proven to be highly reliable and requiring no maintenance.

The compact size and low weight means a much smaller overall installation compared to a traditional combustion engine, making retro fit projects as simple as possible.
