Electric engines have zero emission, extremely low operating costs, almost zero noise emission, and low level of maintenance.

Their biggest advantage over combustion engines is that electric-powered boats can be used in waters and lakes where combustion engines are banned.

They can be used in all places where it is possible to use combustion-engined boats regularly. In addition, electric boats can be used on inland waters where the use of combustion - engined ones are prohibited , like  Lake Balaton, Lake Velence, Lake Tisza, and Lake Fertő.

It has a nominal performance of 180 HP, but the performance of electric motor is not as easily comparable to that of combustion engines. In the case of an electric motor, we are talking about continuous and peak performance. The eKraft 180 has a peak performance of 200 HP and a continuous performance of 150 HP.

We are currently installing the system into boats with inboard motor and planing hulls, mostly connecting it to an Alpha One Z engine. On average, a boat size between 16 and 26 feet is ideal for installing the system with the optimum performance. With a lower hull self-weight, longer range and higher top speed can be achieved.

Calculated for batteries used during the 5-months seasonal period from May 1 to September 30:

3 charges / week: 15 years (66 charging cycles / season)

5 charges / week: 9 years (110 charging cycles / season)

7 charges / week: 6 years (154 charging cycles / season)

The values calculated above are estimates based on the most accurate manufacturer data provided. The charging cycle also depends on the application, so we can only calculate approximate values.

One charging cycle means using and recharging all the energy that can be stored in the battery.

According to the manufacturer, the capacity of a battery cell decreases to 80% after 1000 complete cycles (80%: the battery cell is considered faulty).

During navigation, the system signals when a predetermined minimum level is reached - which can be adjusted individually - and switches to emergency mode, so you can get to the nearest charging point with reduced power.

Note: Full power can be reached even after reaching the minimum level, but is not recommended for safety reasons.
