Electric drive systems make sense for commercial operators
Combustion engines cost money every time you use them.
An outboard of between 70 and 90 HP typically uses between 10 and 40 litres of fuel per hour above 6 knots.
A 4-hour trip can therefore easily cost upwards of EUR 60. With an average of 150 working days a year on the water, annual fuel costs soon add up to over EUR 9,000.
In contrast, one Deep Blue high-voltage battery charge costs between EUR 3 and EUR 12 depending on the number of batteries – they save up to 95% of the costs.
If you spend more than 100 days a year on the water it may well make sense to switch to a clean, electric drive system. Contact us to discuss this in detail.
