It’s important to get shaft length right. Too long, you risk hitting submerged objects more frequently and performance suffers. Too short and you’ll cavitate.

At ePropulsion we measure shaft length differently. For electric outboards, the shaft length is measured from the top of the clamp bracket to the centre of the propeller. For petrol outboards, it’s measured from the top of the clamp bracket to the anti-ventilation plate.

Our XS is close to S from Mercury. Our S is close to L from Mercury. Our L is longer than the L from Mercury.

To find the right length for your boat, make sure the top of the propeller is matched to the lowest point of the transom. To do that, measure the transom height (the length from the top of the boat transom to the bottom of the boat.

Then simply choose the  recommended shaft length for your transom height.

For most small dinghies and aluminium boats under 15 ft or 4.5m, extra short shaft and short will work, depending on the transom height, some over 40 cm / 15.7 inches, some not.

For boats with the transom height higher than 50 cm / 19.7 inches, a long shaft version is more suitable.

For daysailers and short one-design racing sailboats, it depends on the position of the outboard mount. If you choose Spirit 1.0, we suggest you keep the outboard mount at a lower position so XS will work. That’s because XS takes less space to store inside the cabin.

For daysailers, sports boats and other sailing boats it’s best to measure the distance from the water line to the top of your outboard mount.

If you still have any questions regarding the shaft length, don’t hesitate to contact us. You can also view this blog post or download the technical drawings of ePropulsion outboards via our download centre.

Absolutely. All you’ll need is an external battery power cable. We recommend the ePropulsion 48V E-Series Battery to extend the range.

Simply store the battery in the dry environment and keep the battery charge level at 60% around, Make sure to charge the battery every 3 months.
