The original poster probably found an engine by now - you replied (twice) to a 4 year old post.

I am plannning to repower my Pearson 35 with a 20 HP electric motor. this will replace the atomic 4 currently in use. The system we are going to use ahouls give us 24 hours of motoring on the battery, the ability to recharge from shore power, or recharge from a gen set / solar panels or wind turbine. if we run out of charge the gen set can come on and recharge batteries and provide power to the drive at the same time. This should be a nice change from the noisy atomic four. quite / cool/ and inexpensive. the batteries drive and motor should run us about 7k anyone interested let me know and we will keep you posted

I agree with Tommays. Could you be more specific - number of batteries/amp hours etc please?

Would really like to get the details. Haven't heard of any setup that can provide 24 hours of motoring--unless it's at 10 RPM or something.

My Yanmar died, and I think I'm going to repower with a Propulsion Marine electric. They don't project anything like these times. They project up to 10 hours for motor sailing at a few hundred watts to keep the sails full. As you speed up power consumption rises at (IIRC) the cube of the speed increase.
OTOH, it starts instantly every time and, with a high thrust prop, it will provide a huge amount of drive in emergencies. Internal combustion HP ratings are at absolute peak output; electric system ratings are at constant output. IOW diesels are pushing it to put out their rated HP, and electric motors can run their rated output all day and have power to spare for emergencies.
All this said, diesel fuel still has vastly more energy density. There's no getting around that . It's dirty and stinky, too.
