The silence of an Oceanvolt electric propulsion is a skipper’s dream.  Whether quietly manoeuvring through a harbour or motor-sailing on low-wind days to create your own apparent wind, Oceanvolt electric solutions will enhance and extend your sailing enjoyment.

The new Oceanvolt AXC series provides higher performance, greater durability and more comfort than ever before. The motors have been designed for the benefit of customers operating larger, heavier displacement boats including charter catamarans, non-planing motorboats, heavy duty commercial boats & small passenger ferries.

The Oceanvolt AXC series is a modular system available in four power configurations 10kW, 20kW, 30kW or 40kW; the latter of these provides power to the equivalent of up to 100hp.  The AXC system can also be installed as a twin system in catamarans and motor boats.

The AXC offers many of the same benefits as Oceanvolt’s SD sail drive and AX shaft drive systems – only now with a longer cruising range, higher top speed and even lower levels of vibration and onboard noise levels due to the direct drive. AXC systems also require significantly less space on board compared to a traditional diesel engine.

The AXC has an integrated motor controller and can be retrofitted on the existing mounting frame of a Yanmar or Volvo shaft drive motor.

Oceanvolt systems are scaled and configured to achieve maximum efficiency – taking into consideration boat length, beam and displacement as well as system weight and placement within the boat.  Range, beyond battery capacity, is extended through hydro generation while sailing above 6kn.  This can be complemented with either a portable AC generator or a DC generator (in larger boats or for long distance cruising).

All Oceanvolt systems are engineered to operate at 48 volts for passenger safety and ease of repair. Oceanvolt systems are extremely low maintenance and do not require winterizing (no annual engine maintenance/storage costs).
