ELECTRIC OUTBOARD MOTOR: EP-50
COMPLETE 50HP ELECTRIC OUTBOARD MOTOR SYSTEM

Electric Marine Propulsion Systems
Graphic above incorrectly shows the maximum current draw of
The correct figure is 280 Amps at full power.
Elco EP-50 is the latest powerful electric marine propulsion
system from Elco - perfect for small speed boats, sailboats,
pontoon boats and small boats. Environmentally clean and efficient
marine propulsion. It is an easy refit or an even easier option
for new boats under construction - these electric outboards
are made to fit a standard 20 inch transom. Please note that
this 50 Horsepower electric outboard runs on a 96 Volt DC battery
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.
Elco outbaord marine motors come ready to connect and run -
the leg is filled with gear oil and the motors have been pre-programmed
and test run at the factory for 1 hour.
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.

extra safe ABYC approved fuse assembly from Pinnacle.
It is available through Blue Sea Marine Dealers
and the part numbers are 5113 and 5007100.
Electric Hydraulic Model 50 Trim and Tilt
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 50 is a heavy-duty, fabricated
aluminum bracket. Holds 2 and 4 stroke motors up
to 55 horsepower and weighing up to 250 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
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.

EP SERIES WARRANTY:
Limited Warranty, 2 years labour, 3 years parts
NOTE: Do not run the motor out
of the water - it will damage the water pump and void
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
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 lead-acid batteries.
order for us to specify and quote a battery
system we ask that you provide us the following
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 outboard mechanic.
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
