ELECTRIC OUTBOARD MOTOR: EP-5
COMPLETE 5HP ELECTRIC OUTBOARD MOTOR SYSTEM - 24
Pure Electric Outboard Motors/
Electric Marine Propulsion Systems
Elco EP-5 is a powerful electric marine propulsion system
- perfect for small yacht tender boats, small boats, inflatable
boats, canoes and more.... Combining affordability and environmentally
clean and efficient marine propulsion. As this is a new release
from Elco, more details and specifications will be coming.
5HP 24 Volt electric outboard marine motor is built on the same
frame/ leg as the Elco EP9.9 HP 48 Volt motor. As the battery
system is just 24 Volts this means that the cost of the battery
system is much less with this motor and the overall battery
system size and weight is much smaller - making it an affordable
and compact system for small boats such as inflatable tender
boats, canoes and more.
of the Elco outboards run at 4,500-5,000 RPM with a 2-1 gear
reduction ratio. The Lower unit is comparable to a Yamaha outboard
and those can be used as replacement parts - a huge advantage
when you need service or spart parts.
do I choose - Long Shaft or Short Shaft?
Take a tape measure and measure from the top of the transom
mounting plate that we will clamp the motor to and measure
down to the water line and add 1 inch or so.
the measurement is 17.5 inches choose the Short Shaft outboard
the measurement is 22.5 inches choose the Long Shaft outboard

Electric Hydraulic Model 40 Trim and Tilt 55-0040
is an optional part that many Elco outboard motor
opt for on the smaller motors when they operate
in shallow waters, frequently make beach landings
and/ or when they want to be easily able to lift
the motor out of the water.
addition, the Panther system can make installing
the Elco outboards easier on some larger boats that
may have a flat rear transom not necessarily designed
for outboard motors.
trim and tilt is designed specifically for the weekend
fisherman. The Model 40 is a heavy-duty, fabricated
aluminum bracket. Holds 2 and 4 stroke motors up
to 150 lbs. Its powerful electro-mechanical actuator
provides automatic trim and tilt with the push of
a button. Bracket comes with electrical relay and
2-button switch with a 12' power cord that connects
to a 12 Volt battery system.
needed, we can provide a Victron Energy Orion 48
Volt to 12 Volt DC converter at additional cost
so that you can power the Panther with the Elco
motor's 48 Volt DC battery system.

Please note that the Elco motors as priced do
not include a battery system. Customers can source
their own deep cycle battery system or we can
offer a variety of battery systems:
batteries: lowest cost, heavy, bulky, require
maintenance, slow recharging, lowest life expectancy/
cycle life (up to about 600 cycles but usually
start losing capacity after about 300 cycles)
batteries: moderate cost, heavy, bulky, require
less maintenance, slow recharging, improved
life expectancy/ cycle life (up to 1,000 to
lithium-ion batteries: best overall
system with highest performance, next to zero
maintenance, lightweight, fast charging, compact
and exceptional life expecatncy - up to 5,800
cycles at 50% discharge rate. The only downside
is these batteries cost significantly more than
order for us to specify and quote a battery system
we ask that you provide us the following information:
how many hours per day do you want to be able
approximately what % of full throttle do you expect
to use on average?
is the weight and size of your boat?
are the physical dimensions of the battery area
that you have?
tell us about the electrical outlet(s) you have
access to to plug the battery charger into. Example:
110 Volt AC outlet on a 15 Amp circuit breaker
100 feet away from the boat.
let us know if you have any roof or deck space
available for possible rigid or semi-flexible
solar panels and the dimensions of such areas.
this information we can then calculate the Amp hours
of battery capacity required to give you the desired
running time before recharging. Depending on your
budget and other factors we can then quote you some
battery options. Please keep in mind that to be able
to run all day at a high percentage of throttle may
require a substantial battery bank. For many small
boats (under 25 feet) we can provide an economical
battery system that can provide a few hours enjoyment
but many small boats (such as a 10 foot tender boat)
may not have enough available space or carrying capacity
for a battery bank that can run the motor more than
1 or 2 hours at high throttle.
applications that require longer running times the
most economical way to go may be what we call a "hybrid-electric
battery system" where we can decrease the size
and cost of the battery system by adding a Polar Power
DC diesel generator or other type of generator.
Electric Outboard Motor Service Notes:
In the unlikely event that something goes wrong with
the Elco electric inboard or outboard marine motor
there are lights that flash on the electric controller
(located under the engine cover on the top of the
motor) and that tells us what is wrong. It really
depends on what the controller tells us as to whether
the motor can be repaired quickly and easily locally
or if it needs to go back to Elco for repair.
lower unit on the outboards can be serviced by a marine
Inboard Motors: Please read the instruction manual
on the inboards (click on PDF link below). We will
help with a correct prop solution: we need the boat
specs and what the diameter of the prop that the owner
wants to use. It is very important that the pitch
is correct other wise the motor will not function
correctly - you can either go in over Voltage or under
Voltage and you will not get the performance that
you should from the motor and this can cause problems.
There is a procedure that is in the manual for the
inboards – you need to water test and take down the
speed you are going and the rpms and the Amps the
motor is pulling (all that is displayed on the display
that come with the unit but you will have to use a
hand held GPS to get the speed data) at first low
speed, then half throttle and then full throttle.
This will tells us if the pitch is correct and you
are getting full Horsepower and reaching 1,500 RPM
- 1,800 RPM is about the maximum for the Elco EP Inboards.

How long can I go without recharging?
There are various factors in determining how far you can go
before you need to recharge. Winds, tides, currents, weights,
propeller type, vessel speed and battery size are some examples.
With a generator on board running time can be extended or made
continuous. Below is a graphical representation comparing Diesel
fuel consumption for an Elco electric propulsion system using
lead-type batteries versus a diesel engine. NOTE: With Lithionics

What size Elco Electric Marine
Motor is right for my boat?
There is some overlap between motor and boat sizes so choosing
the right size motor for you and your vessel can sometimes require
some personal expertise to make the right choice. In selecting
the correct size electric motor, some general tips are - in areas
with strong tides and currents, choose the next larger size motor,
and the same goes for weight - if your boat is heavy for its length,
choose the next size up.
Motor Yacht has also developed a robust and easy motor coupling
system to allow for twin or triple motor installations. This can
be used when a vessel exceeds 85 feet or if you need a faster
cruising speed. Please contact us about the motor coupling
