How long will my motor last?
These motors are used in industrial applications and are rated for extremely high run times, in most marine applications and usage, motors can be expected to last for decades if treated correctly.
Can I re-gen?
Our controllers can be programmed for re-gen charging when sailing with a variable output. There are different factors when understanding the re-gen capabilities. High sustained hull speeds are required to get any real benefit from re-gen, so ocean crossings and extended cruising is ideal. Re-gen will sacrifice some boat speed when engaged.
How far can I go on a full charge?
Hugely dependable on the system spec and environmental conditions. To calculate this figure, we will need to know the motor, battery capacity, type and spec of the vessel and intended use.
Ready to install kits provides a complete bolt-in system ready for self-install into your vessel. We have carefully chosen, tested, and check each component to ensure performance and reliability.
Growing up on the East Coast of England in a sailing family, boats and everything on the water came naturally to me. From traditional sailing, dinghy racing and the endless fascination of moving water. It's no surprise that my path lead me here.
Training initially as a marine diesel engineer, I began to question the longevity of the fuel source and try to imaging the next few decades. I began work on the new type of propulsion, an interesting path of discovery, disaster, delight and endless learning lead me to where Lightning Craft is today.
