Deep Blue 100i 2500 rpm
This 100 kW motor was specifically constructed to power fast, planing motorboats. With a reliable, lowmaintenance, direct-drive design, the Deep Blue 100i delivers extraordinary performance, with up to 2,500 rotations per minute and a torque of 390 Nm.
It is not just power and performance that make Deep Blue the first of its kind. It is unparalleled performance combined with full system integration and groundbreaking safety levels that set Deep Blue apart from all other electric propulsion systems on the market.
All the components of the system are perfectly engineered to match each other and are completely waterproof. State-of-the art monitoring technology with pilot lines and insulation monitors safeguard the high-voltage system against the risk of short circuits. The same high-performance lithium batteries used to power cars also power Deep Blue – after we developed them further for use in boats. These and many more safety and performance features make Deep Blue a unique high-voltage propulsion system for electric boats.
And if that's not enough – we provide a 9-year warranty on the Deep Blue's battery capacity, that's right, 9 years. Electric boat propulsion is not only powerful and safe, it is also a genuine commercial alternative for heavy users in particular.

Power-trim-and-tilt for outboard operation. (See page 60-61 for throttle options)Deep Blue information system on high resolution marine display: touchscreen, waterproof, good sunlight readability. Clean, clearly arranged display of system information.BMW i battery: Latest battery generation. Very high energy density, durable, robust, highest level of quality and safety.System Management Unit: Bundles all AC inputs and allows charging from onshore power (while at dock) or from a generator (while at sea). Waterproof to IP67, with integrated water sensor.High-power electric motor: Specially developed for the requirements of the Deep Blue system. Electronically commutated brushless motor with outstanding efficiency (max. 98%). Suitable for salt water cooling.12 V battery: activates the high-capacity battery at each start-up. Supplies 12 V for the onboard network and is automatically charged from the 352.3 V battery. No additional 12 V charger required.
- Deep Blue: the first high-power propulsion system in serial production. A fully integrated system in which all components are designed to match each other seamlessly and to work together perfectly on the water. An overall concept that is unique in terms of safety, performance and range.
- The Deep Blue 100i 2500 rpm is the "planer" at your side.
- 9-year warranty on battery bank:
a reliable battery lifespan is key for electric boating economics. That is why the Deep Blue battery comes with a long-term battery capacity warranty: 9 years after commissioning, the batteries will still have 80 % of their original capacity, even if you use them every day.* Battery ageing is transparent and can be tracked by the user in the on-board computer at any time. * Adherence to warranty conditions required.
