Navy 3 EVO
So Easy to use
Navy 3 ePropulsion is the ideal choice for trailer sailer propulsion, fishing and other on-water activities.
The first thing you notice about the Navy 3 is the lack of hassle of a pull start. You simply push the button, move the throttle and you are moving. Instantly, you notice the lack of noise; it is so quiet you can hear the water washing past the hull. Quickly it becomes apparent just how easy it is to use. Operation is so simple, all the family can use it with ease. No physical strength is required or need to explain choke position, fuel caps, etc.
At the end of the day you will enjoy minimal maintenance. Simply hose off. There are no water pump impellers here to flush.
The high quality, brushless DC motor is placed inside the bottom aluminum case of NAVY 3.0. Its gearbox-free design eliminates noise effectively and avoids maintenance concerns associated with other motors on the market with gearboxes. The built-in motor protection slows and/or stops the motor if it strikes an underwater object by accident.
The ePropulsion Navy 3 can be controlled by a tiller or blue tooth remote throttle. Both display power consumption 3 ways: in watts, voltage and the state of charge of the battery. This is equivalent to your car fuel gauge. The electric outboard has a built-in GPS which allows the throttle to display speed and distance travelled or expected range at current speed & conditions - reduce your speed by half a knot and watch your range increase exponentially!
These display options are extremely helpful while you get used to your new drive and gives you great control of your speed and power usage.
Both remote controller and tiller handle have a solar panel which provides constant solar power for the built-in lithium battery on sunny days.
The remote throttle provides great benefit to small tiller steered craft as the throttle can mounted in front of the helmsman allowing
maintenance of forward vision while steering.There is no need to face backwards to adjust the gears and throttle. This is very helpful when berthing.
Battery & Range
The ePropulsion Navy 3 electric outboard is powered by a 48 Volt motor which requires a battery bank mounted in the boat in a safe location This can be conventional lead acid batteries or lighter lithium batteries. Capacity required will depend on your range needs.
Range is dependant on how much battery “kW/h” the owner choses to have for their style of sailing/motoring or size of solar panels. Some may wish to have enough to get in and out of port; others may wish for a greater range for cruising. In many ways range is unlimited because you can replenish from solar making fuel while you are cruising.
Lighter boats and easily driven hulls will need less than heavier boats. Please view our Electric Conversions pages to read examples of boats already powered by a Navy 3. If you can't find a match contact us with details of your boat and we will provide information on battery capacity based on our experience for your needs.
