PropEle Electric Boat Motors announces the EP Carry

by Rus Graham 9 Jan 03:39 UTC

PropEle Electric Boat Motors, the innovation leader in portable electric propulsion, announced today the EP Carry. Now in full production, the innovative motor system provides lightweight, efficient, simple-to-use propulsion. The EP Carry is designed specifically for dinghies, tenders, small rowing and other craft under 13 feet and 600 pounds. The new product line delivers ship-to-shore simplicity, and quiet electric power with unique, patented features for easy control, comfort and safety.

Weighing in at a mere 14 pounds, the revolutionary EP Carry motor is sold complete with a 7-pound buoyant battery pack making it the lightest electric motor system on the market and compact enough to easily handle and lift by hand. This light weight, combined with advanced ergonomics, allows for simple and fast set-up and operation, all from a seated position. The motor clamps onto a transom or motor mount and sets up in less than a minute. With a pull on the tiller arm to lift the prop, boaters can beach their dinghy, eliminating the challenges of traditional outboards that require reaching back or latching with a second hand. All controls including reverse gear are within reach at the end of the longest tiller arm of any outboard motor.

In spite of its small size and low weight, the EP Carry provides ample propulsion for one to three hours, depending on the power level selected. Designed to deliver long runtime for multiple ship-to-shore trips, most small boats can expect speeds of 3.5 to 4.2 knots with a range of 3-6 miles per charge. Lithium battery packs offer reliable operation with fast recharge times.

"I originally developed the EP Carry system to protect my family from harmful carbon monoxide fumes while we were enjoying our time on the water," said Joe Grez, founder, PropEle. "I wanted a system that provided clean, safe and efficient electric power, with an elegant design that could be hand carried. I discovered that an electric solution enhances your boating experience by removing the hassles, fumes, emissions and noise of gas motors. Now sailors, cruisers, boating dog owners and boaters on lakes can travel quickly, safely and more enjoyably."

Engineered for maximum efficiency, the EP Carry's custom brushless motor provides 220 watts of power. Offering boaters the easiest ownership experience, the EP Carry includes a patented water-lubricated gear system that requires zero maintenance. Owners of the EP Carry can enjoy safe shallow-water operation due to its innovative design features including a unique, high-aspect ratio and slow-turning prop design; as well as a low-force grounding kick-up, a well-protected skeg and an electronic shear pin. The motor is available in three shaft lengths Mini, Standard/Short and Long, and is solar-ready with a variety of 24-volt panels available to fit the unique needs of each owner.

The EP Carry motor system is available for $1,600 as a complete kit with motor, battery, fast charger, accessory carry bags and a lock for security. To learn more about the EP Carry or PropEle Electric Boat Motors please visit www.epcarry.com.
