Spirit 1.0 Plus - approx. 3hp - ePropulsion Portable Electric Outboard Motor


Length of shaft: Extra short shaft (with Spirit Battery)
Sale price£1,875.00



The Spirit 1.0 Plus is the industry leading portable electric outboard motor.  Leading the way in performance rechargeable outboard motors, it is a highly reliable and affordable step to greener boating.

Why is an electric outboard better?

  • 1kW offers equivalent power to a 3hp engine
  • clean, quiet, less harm to nature & the oceans
  • extensive motoring range & capacity
  • up to 5 hours / 22 miles in 3m tender
  • maintenance free – no fuel or oil on board
  • direct drive - easy to use

This lightweight, highly portable outboard motor can be recharged using a standard charger (supplied), fast charger, 12 volt output or solar power.  It has an unsinkable battery that is recyclable.

Reliable, flexible boating

Like all the innovative ePropulsion motors the Spirit 1.0 Plus is built to last. The motor passed a continuous 83 day run test, with flying colours.

It’s easy to carry and store on board, by separating the battery from the shaft, making it perfect for:

  • yacht tenders
  • SIBs (small inflatable RIBs)
  • day sailing boats & dinghies
  • small motor boats and day boats
  • fishing boats

Full warranty

Two years warranty for the motor and battery for non-commercial use.

Portable electric outboard efficiency

The 1276Wh battery means 75 minutes run time at full throttle compared to 45 minutes for an average 3.5hp petrol outboard at full power.

The highly efficient battery means more reliable boating and efficient boating. The direct drive motor has more torque, making it more efficient than a combustion engine, and it conserves overall use of power. With few moving parts, no fuel, oil or grease required you’ll save money too as there’s no maintenance, winterising or servicing required.

Kinder to the environment

  • no risk of fuel leaks into lakes, rivers or oceans
  • no exhaust fumes or pollution
  • no fuel reduces any fire risk on board
  • clean and easy to store on board or in your car
  • silent – less disruptive to wildlife and fish

When not in use, the recyclable ePropulsion 1276Wh battery will discharge itself and ‘hibernate’, so there’s no need for manual discharging.
