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.

 NOTE: The Spirit 1.0 Plus is also available without the battery. Please contact us for pricing.

Incredibly Versatile

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.


Included with Motor

Battery Charger, Steering Pin, Kill Switch, Owners Manual

Great little motor

I'm on my third season with this motor and performance has been flawless. I push a 12ft tinny across our small lake most weekends. It isn't fast but it also doesn't scare the loons, necessitate raising your voice to have a conversation or stink up the back of the car with gas fumes.

Perfect for 9' inflatable tender

Works great on a 9' inflatable tender - super easy to install & use, and so nice and quiet when you are coming in. The loudest sound is the sound of the raft in the water, you don't hear the engine at all effectively. Conveniently it comes with two mag kill switches so can tie one to the battery as a backup.

Very fast delivery from Crafts Cove too, and had discussed some of the various options on the phone before buying, had lots of great advice on the various options (different models & manufacturers) so helped me figure out the most useful for me. At "full out" the tender moves fast enough to be useful (tender is rated up to 10hp for reference), so glad I went with this unit instead of the smaller torqeedo 603 I was also looking at. If there was a bit of a current I'd be worried about the lower power one keeping up.
