A boat, in Krensen’s view, is between 0 and 15 meters or 0 and 50 feet. Our system is best suited to inboard planing hull boats between 20 and 30 feet. The reason is that size affects energy consumption, at the same time as having fairly heavy ICE systems installed. However, when removing an ICE system either in real life or during planning for new boats, this will free up a lot of weight that can be used for the electric propulsion system. Since the motor and converter typically only weigh between 100 and 200 kg (depending on the specification on the boat) that again means there is a lot of room for the batteries, which can give an acceptable range for most.
