We have the electrical motors you need for your boat.
Are you thinking of buying an electric motor for your boat? We will help you choose the right one.
How will you use the boat and electric motor?
The first thing to consider is how you use your boat today and how you want to use the electric motor. How far do you sail? Do you want to sail fast or cruise when fishing?
Where should the electric motor be mounted?
A front-mounted electric motor is mounted at the bow and is usually controlled using a remote control. By mounting the motor at the bow, the stern will not be as cramped if you already have an engine. A stern-mounted electric motor is mounted at the stern and controlled with a tiller. A stern-mounted electric motor is a good option if you have a smaller boat without a motor.
Are electric motors resistant to salt water?
Some electric motors are not designed for use in salt water and can therefore be damaged in salt water. All of Biltema’s electric boat motors are salt water resistant. A tip is to always rinse off the motor rig with fresh water after taking the boat into the sea.
Frequently asked questions about electrical motors
How powerful an electric motor do I need?
The power of the electric motor is usually stated in pounds (lbs). The electric motor power you need depends on, among other things, what speed you are sailing and how heavy the boat is including cargo. A rule of thumb is that for every 100 lbs of weight, you need at least 2 lbs in power.
What is an electric outboard motor?
It is an electric boat motor that is mounted outside the boat.
Why should I have an electric motor for my boat?
Biltema’s electric motors are more environmentally friendly and quiet than petrol-powered boat engines. They can also be easily removed from the boat and moved.
