I have a new brushless 5kw motor, controller, reducer and motor mounting hardware if you are interested. Perfect fit for your sailboat.


How do you compare kw to HP?
What would this system weigh in at?
I am planning to replace a 20HP diesel engine with
an electric propulsion system. I would like the total
weight of the electric, including the battery bank to
be substantially lighter than the diesel. I plan to
drive the existing Saildrive with a belt.
The motor will only be used for maneuvering out of
the slip, sailing commences immediately after.
