POWERFULL ELECTRIC OUTBOARDS by EVOY
Finally available in the market some powerfull electric outboards for your next boat
Evoy delivers turnkey plug-and-play 100% electric propulsion systems to new and existing boats. Since the
summer of 2019, the prototype Evoy1 – a Polarcirkel 860 – has been used for extensive testing and
optimization of the system, and has now stepped up to serial production. Last summer Evoy1 was baptized by
Norway’s Prime Minister, Erna Solberg and set an unofficial world record for production e-boats with 55 knots
later the same year.
Evoy is based in Florø, Norway, and their systems of up to 800 hp are designed and tested to operate in the toughest environments in the world – the Norwegian coast.
This year Evoy is focused on the commercial market with an inboard propulsion system for boats between 20
and 40 feet. Additionally, they are working on an outboard system supported financially with 1,8 Mill NOK
from Innovation Norway. The goal is to have it completed and ready for the market in first quarter of 2021.
“We have had many inquiries to deliver outboard systems, especially from the Polar Cruise segment.
Hurtigruten were early to announce their interest and wanted to have 30 systems delivered in the spring of
2020. We like challenges, but this inquiry was a little tight, even for us “
says an excited CEO and Founder Leif A. Stavøstrand.
The Prototype Outboard – which is not drivable yet – was to be released at the Boat Show Sjøen for Alle in
Lillestrøm, Norway March 18-22. Due to the cancellation, the World Premiere will be in Florø later this season. The Prototype is based on a 90 hk and with a more powerful lower leg, it will likly perform equivalent a 150 hp petrol engine, now with electric propulsion. The testing that will be performed during summer and fall of 2020 will give the final results on performance and range.
Electric propulsions are the future of sustainable and environmentally friendly boating. With outboard engines it will therefore be possible not only to build new boats but also to adapt existing ones so that they can navigate with zero emissions.
