The Dutch Wave is currently researching the advantages and disadvantages of an electric outboard motor. There are many advantages; electricity does not smell like a petrol engine, the engine requires little maintenance and electric sailing is much more environmentally friendly. Of course, there are also disadvantages; electricity is less readily available on the water, so charging the batteries is not always possible. In addition, the action radius of an electric boat is a lot smaller than that of a petrol-driven boat. Of course, you can add extra batteries, but that is exactly what makes electric boating so expensive. We will keep you informed about this research.
