E-Tech Electric POD SailDrive

Excellence in Electric Marine Propulsion

Mounting Essentials:

  • Streamlined Mounting: This advanced propulsion system offers direct and secure attachment to the vessel’s hull, ensuring robustness and durability. Its mounting mechanism is reminiscent of traditional saildrives, making it an intuitive upgrade for many boat designs.
  • Steering Requirements: Unlike traditional outboard or steerable pods, the Fixed Pod requires an external rudder for navigation and control. This design choice aligns with the characteristics of traditional saildrives, which also depend on a separate rudder system for directionality.
  • A Saildrive Evolution: As marine propulsion technology evolves, the Fixed Pod stands out as a direct successor to the saildrive, inheriting its core principles while introducing modern engineering advancements. Whether retrofitting older vessels or equipping new builds, the Fixed Pod offers a contemporary option for those looking to transition from the conventional saildrive systems.
  • Stationary Motor Design: With a simplified design that boasts fewer moving parts, the Fixed Pod offers enhanced reliability over some traditional systems. Its stationary nature represents the essence of what made saildrives popular – consistent propulsion without the complications of steering mechanisms in the drive itself.

E-Tech Electric POD Drives: Technical Specifications


Motor Power: Ranging from 4kW for lighter applications to a potent 35kW for demanding conditions. Whether you’re cruising coastal waters or venturing into the open sea, there’s an E-Tech drive calibrated for your needs.

Operating Voltage: Our versatile drives can operate across a broad voltage spectrum from 48V to 144V, ensuring compatibility with a range of power sources and setups.

Battery Compatibility: The beauty of our system lies in its adaptability. While there’s no limit to battery size, it’s essential to note that the voltage should align with the motor’s nominal system. Our system boasts flexibility by accommodating batteries that may have higher or lower voltages than nominal. However, any deviation should be consulted with a specialist to ensure optimal performance and safety.

E-Tech POD Fixed: A Complete Propulsion Solution

Making the transition from conventional to electric boating has never been easier. Unlike other offerings in the market, where essential components like displays and throttles come as separate, often costly add-ons, our drives systems provide a holistic propulsion kit. With our complete system, the only external components you’ll need are batteries, chargers, and propellers. Everything else is bundled for your convenience:
  1. E-Tech Motor: The heart of the system, engineered for unmatched performance and efficiency.
  2. Motor Controller: A dedicated device ensuring optimal motor control, responsiveness, and safety.
  3. Throttle Options: Choose from top or side-mounted single throttles. For dual-engine setups, a double throttle is available, ensuring synchronized power delivery.
  4. Digital Display: Real-time feedback at your fingertips, from battery levels to motor metrics.
  5. Ignition System: Equipped with a secure key mechanism, ensuring both safety and ease of use.
  6. Connectivity Cables: Two data cables provided for effortless connection between the throttle, display, and controller.
  7. Display Power Cable: Connecting the controller and display, this cable ensures the screen stays powered and ready in standby mode.
  8. External Battery Fuse: Enhancing the safety profile of the system.
  9. Main Switch: Centralized control for the entire propulsion system.
  10. Propulsion Essentials: Each kit includes a propeller washer, nut, and a ZINC anode to safeguard against electrolytic corrosion.
  11. *Charging Function Switch: An optional component, this switch is included when the controller is equipped with a charging function. It allows users to harness the engine’s energy for charging onboard batteries.
