Less than 30 ft & less than 4 tons monohull sailboats
Sailboats that are less than 10 meters are perfect for a day at the sea or a mini-cruise along the Atlantic or Mediterranean coasts. These monohulls have a cabin and comfort equipment. We recommend the following solutions for the electric motor and the autonomous green energy production of your boat :
Electric Motor for sailboat
OCEANVOLT AX3/AX/5 in-line motor
For a boat that is less than 4 tons, a motorization of 3 kW is the right solution. OCEANVOLT AX3 is a 3.7 KW shaft line inboard engine. It is perfect for small boats. It is quiet, very easy to install, does not take much space and is very light. It works equally well with Lithium batteries as with AGM batteries.
From 6000 euros HT (AX3) and 6500 euros HT (AX5) excluding battery, installation and transport
If your boat is not designed for a shaft line, then you should lean towards a POD or an outboard motor.

- Optional :
5a. Battery park
5b. Power bar
5c. Quay charger
Power : 3.7 KW (Also available in 5.2 KW and 8 KW)
Revolutions per minute (propeller): 975
Weight (Kg) : 22
Hydro generation: yes
Recommended battery park: 5.7 KWH NMC
Estimated autonomy with 5.7 KWH NMC = 20 miles
Technological advances in terms of solar panels on boats make them almost essential nowadays, whether it is to maintain the charge of the batteries during absences, without having to moor the boat to the dock, or to spread the ever-increasing consumption on board and supply power to the batteries of the electric motor propulsion.
They are the ideal complement for hydro generation.
For a boat that is less than 30 feet where space is limited, flexible solar panels over which you can walk or foldable ones will be very efficient for your autonomy.
