The direct-drive motor and advanced design propeller deliver high efficiency with near-silent operation.

  • Price £995 with VAT

Easy removal and installation are facilitated by its one-click quick release system, eliminating the need for electrical connections or tools. Users can effortlessly lift the motor on or off for charging or maintenance while securely leaving the clamp bracket in place, all at the touch of a button.

Designed for comfort and adaptability

The eLite features an ergonomic, easy-grip twist grab handle which effortlessly and precisely controls forward, reverse and power output. It is extendable, foldable and the angle is adjustable for a personalised boating experience.

The eLite also includes an adjustable shaft length to accommodate numerous boat sizes and types. Addtionally, it offers multiple angles for trim and tilt. An intuitive digital control and display provides essential information including battery level, power output, system status, and alerts. It also has a single button control to select mode and switch the main display from power output to battery level with ease.

The eLite sets itself apart with an integrated Lithium-ion battery featuring a Smart Battery Management System for energy efficient operations and extended battery life. The eLite offers multiple charging options, including 110/220V AC, 12V DC, and solar with the use of optional ePropulsion converters. Furthermore, a convenient USB-C output allows users to charge and power other electrical devices. Engineered to the highest standards of water resistance, it is IP67 waterproof and designed to withstand the harshest marine conditions with an aerospace-grade aluminium alloy casing ensuring durability and reliability.

Built-in safety features include an emergency magnetic kill switch and anti-grounding mode, reducing the likelihood of damage from underwater obstacles.
