OCEANVOLT Electric Propulsion

Since we first dreamt of sailing the world, we dreaded the smell, noise, vibration, and maintenance, synonymous with having a diesel motor on-board. So, we decided to build our own electric motor from used parts we found online. (You can read all about our Electro-beke motor HERE.) After 5 years and 20,000 miles of sailing with our DIY system, we were finally able to upgrade to an Oceanvolt Saildrive. We now enjoy more efficiency, more range, and more control—making the few times we actually use the motor more enjoyable.
