The E-POD combines the motor, suspension, cooling, gearbox, clutch, propeller shaft and propeller all in one complete system. This space-saving solution ensures there is no need for an engine box and propeller shaft through the boat. Opening up the floor space, a completely new boat design is possible.
Acceleration with the E-POD motor is more powerful and faster than with a diesel engine. A gearbox and clutch are not required for the electric propulsion system, which means that when reversing the propeller, the complete high speed electric motor must immediately stop and then rotate in the opposite direction. To enable a quick reverse power manoeuvre, similar to when using a clutch, VETUS has developed Active Electronic Braking.
