Spirit 1.0 PLUS
The Spirit 1.0 is equivalent of a 3-hp gas outboard motor. It provides more than sufficient propulsion for a 10 ft tender, dinghy, or RIB. It also works as an auxiliary propulsion for a daysailer of up to 1500 kgs.
The Spirit 1.0 PLUS provides up to 75mins of run time at full throttle on one battery, and up to 10hrs of runtime at half throttle. Of course, the batteries can be swapped out very easily within a 1 minute.
Going the Distance
The Spirit 1.0 Plus pushes the limit of range with its high energy efficiency, propeller design, and battery capacity. The 1276 Wh Li-Po battery is the largest for a motor in its class and only weighs 8.8 kgs. The battery will also float, saving it from an accidental overboard.
A standard portable gas outboard engine (ranging from 2.5 HP to 5 HP) has a runtime of less than 45 minutes and requires an external fuel tank to extend that runtime. The Spirit 1.0 Plus can more than double that runtime.
Solar Panel Compatible
Connect your Spirit to solar panels to extend your runtime. On a sunny day you could potentially run the whole day at economical speed.
Eco-friendly, Quiet & Maintenance Free
With the Spirit there are no exhaust emissions going into the water, no fuel leaks and less overall carbon emissions. The Spirit’s direct drive electric motor does not require any maintenance as there are very few moving parts. Because of this the Spirit is super quiet as well, peaking at 55dB which is as loud as a normal conversation.
