Spirit 1.0 Evo is the first-ever electric outboard that features hydrogeneration. This means the rotating propeller will charge your battery, while vessel is under alternate power, such as sailing. ePropulsion pioneers in the innovation of electric outboard motors and we dedicate ourselves to sustainable sailing.

The hydrogeneration data is based on real tests with the anti-ventilation plate installed.

The Spirit 1.0 Evo upgrade includes ability for remote controller and steering, or upgraded tiller control with real-time digital display. The Evo model also includes industry first hydro-generation capability, where battery is charged while boat is operating under alternate power.

Choosing the correct shaft length is important. If you go too long it would still work but it may lack performance. You will also risk hitting bottom or submerged objects more frequently such as rocks. Going too short is a worst scenario as you‘re more than likely going to cavitate.

Please note that ePropulsion has a different shaft length measurement from petrol-powered outboards. For electric outboards, the shaft length is measured from the top of the clamp bracket to the center 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 L from Mercury.

To find the suitable shaft length, the principle is to make sure the top of the propeller is matched to the lowest point of the transom. Hard to put it into practice? Well, in order to get the right shaft length, first, measure the transom height, the length from the top of the boat transom to the bottom of the boat.

After that, you could choose the recommended shaft length based according to the transom height.

For most small dinghies and aluminum boats under 15ft 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 viw this blog post or download the technical drawings of ePropulsion outboards via our download centre.

Yes, and an external battery power cable is required. We recommend the ePropulsion 48V E-Series Battery to extend the range. We also recommend a cowling for looking good when you remove the original Spirit battery.

Store the battery in the dry environment and keep the battery charge level at 60% around, and charge the battery every 3 months.

Yes, it is designed for extensive use in the saltwater. We choose high-quality aluminum alloy as the base material, and apply anodizing coating and powder coating on top of it. For more info, please check ePropulsion blog: How do we make an outboard corrosion-resistant?

Yes, Spirit 1.0 Plus will switch off after 30 mins without operation.

The Evo top mount control has a built-in battery and it can be self-powered by its solar panel. When you use it with wireless connection and the control is at low battery level, you could charge the Evo top mount control with a communication cable.
