Why should choosing to go electric be a compromise, why can't it be better? We agree so at BoatLife 2024 we will be launching the fully electric version of the popular Balt Yacht 818 powered by the new Epropulsion X40 (40kw) electric outboard making its UK debut.

Why should choosing to go electric be a compromise, why can't it be better? We agree so at BoatLife 2024 we will be launching the fully electric version of the popular Balt Yacht 818 powered by the new Epropulsion X40 (40kw) electric outboard making its UK debut.

X40 Features:

Digital Electric Steering - The X40’s electric steering system eliminates the need for hydraulic components, offering a streamlined, low-maintenance solution. More than just a simplification, this digital steering serves as a gateway to our suite of Advanced Driving Assistance Systems. By offering unprecedented precision and responsiveness, it paves the way for enhanced safety and control features that revolutionise the boating experience

Cutting-edge driving assistance - “Position Hold” and “Heading Hold” “360 Motions” offer additional safety and control. More exciting features to come in the future. X40’s digital helm and smart throttles, with instant digital feedback, are responsive and easy to operate, even for boating novices.

Connectivity - The built-in ePropulsion Connectivity Service keeps you in touch with your boat’s real-time status and provides advanced monitoring, reporting, and trip tracking functionalities.

Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) Excellence - Incorporating frequency resonance isolation and vibration dampening technology, the X40 operates at a noise level of less than 73dBA — comparable to an office environment — allowing users to fully engage with the tranquillity of their surroundings.

Also on display and another UK debut is the GS22 Tender this Dutch styled and built open launch is perfect for day trips with the whole family, and is powered by the Epropulsion i10 (10kw) offering in excess of 10hours cruising from a single charge taking away range anxiety. Completing the line up is the popular entry level Alonsea 560 Plus fitted with the Epropulsion EVO 6 (6kw) with twin lithium battery packs.

Darn newfangled technology! Did you know in 1888 there were half-a-dozen charging stations on the Thames, but by 1902 there were over 20 on land and two floating barges. At Maidenhead alone, seven electric hire boat operations jostled for business.
