boats & sailboats

EVA has been helping convert boats to electric as well as electric sailboat auxiliaries for almost 20 years.  Our largest  electric auxiliary is a 144V system for a 50 ft sailboat built in Nova Scotia.  Our largest pure electric boat was a 40 ft Electric Boat by Clearwater Boats built in 1994.


EVA has done a number of smaller auxiliary drives and electric boat packages.  The typical system is 48V.   There are two reasons.  First, a 48V system can drive a 28 ft sailboat with 8000 lbs displacement.  A 48V system is rated at 6 hp continuous and 10 hp peak.  This accommodates most sailboats.  Second, above 50V, the U.S. Coast Guard has more stringent regulations; these regulations are more applicable to commercial vessels.


EVA can provide boat calculations to help you size components.  There is a misconception that:


            1 hp electric  = 3 hp gas.  

                    This is not true.  


Hp is hp.  The difference is that an electric motor is rated at it point of maximum efficiency; yet may be capable of delivering 3x its rating for short periods of time (i.e. Startup, acceleration, etc.)


Please take a look at our packages, then give us a call at 603-569-2100.   Or simply email Sales@EVAmerica.com
