Lean, green, economical and quiet, if you live on a lake that is small, bans internal combustion engines or is just too shallow for a gas motor, electric pontoons may be just the ticket. However, small boats and lakes are not the only use for electric power. Many people prefer electric power on their larger pontoon boats because it is more environmentally friendly and has no ongoing fuel costs. You can even add electric power to a boat that already has an internal combustion engine and have the option of either power source as the location or occasion may dictate.

Electric power has come a long way and electric motors are now offered by many different manufacturers. If you have been considering an electric powered pontoon and are not sure if it will meet your needs, click on the links below to hopefully help answer some of your questions. If you still need more information or want pricing on an electric or solar pontoon, give us a call and we would be glad to help


Is electric power viable?
Electric power is absolutely a viable power source for most boats, including pontoon boats This 24 volt solar panel provides power for the dock lights, boat lift, and the 24 volt 6 HP electric Torqeedo outboard motor.  2, deep cycle marine batteries. provide all day crusing.
If your interest is in having an environmentally friendly boat to use for quiet cruises around your lake, then electric power may be the way to go. If you would like to have an alternative power source to compliment your outboard engine, electric power or even better solar electric makes a great companion to your boats main power source. Electric propulsion has come a long way in just a few short years. Several manufacturers with years of electric power experience have designed power units that are efficient, attractive, low maintenance, and deliver performance and duration that could only be dreamed of a few short years ago. Battery technology has progressed to the point where running time and ease of charging are no longer an issue. On-board computer chargers and even solar panels are now available to keep your electric Pontoon ready when you are. Prices are reasonable and maintenance is not an issue. Electric power for Pontoons is the wave of the future and some day even water skiing and now tubing is possible with electric power. see movies here

How fast can it go? How long will the battery last?

Electric Pontoon boats can go anywhere from 2 to 10 mph and batteries can last from 1 to 42 hours depending on several different factors. On board Solar powered models can run 7 x 24 hours and never stop.

Variables like the size and weight of your pontoon boat, the size and weight of your propulsion unit and batteries, the wind and weather as well as the throttle position you maintain, all have a significant affect on the top speed and duration of your boats electric power system.

On most modern, properly configured and installed electric propulsion units, you can expect a top speed of 4 to 10 mph and a battery life of 2 to 4 hours at full speed and 4 to 8 hours at lower power settings.

Up to 42 hours run time on some Torqeedo models. NON STOP FOR SOLAR POWERED TORQEEDO MODELS.

 Battery recharge time can be from 2 to 12 hours depending on battery charge level and the type of battery charger that you use

Todayís Pontoon boat electric power and battery technology is progressing rather quickly. SOLAR CHARGING CAN DOUBLE THE BATTERY LIFE.

I am certain that it will not be long until we are attaining speeds of 20 mph + and we already have full power duration of 4 to 6 hours with electric power. Non stop running with solar power.


What types of boat electric power are available?

Several different kinds of electric power are available for your electric canoe, kayak, boat, or pontoon.

Electric trolling motors, Electric outboards, trim tab mounted electric motors, and electric motors that mount on the cavitation plate of your existing outboard motor. Letís discuss each.

Electric trolling motor- Pictured is the Torqeedo 6 HP electric. These are motors that can be mounted on the front or rear of your pontoon boat depending on its particular design. These motors are not typically used for primary propulsion except on the smallest of pontoon boats. They are the type used by fishermen on there bass boats and can either be steered by hand, foot pedal or remote control. TORQEEDO is the best we have tested. They offer the longest running time per battery charge. When equipped with a Solar charger the rum time is unlimited.

ON LARGE BOATS & PONTOONS WITH STEERING WHEELS THE REMOTE MOTOR WOKS BEST. YOU CAN ORDER A SOLAR PANEL KIT AND INSTALL IT YOURSELF OR HAVE A DEALER INSTALL IT.

12 TO 48 VOLT SOLAR POWER FOR THE POPULAR MOTORS AT  WWW.LOGOBOAT.COM

Minn Kota E-driveElectric outboards- electric outboards are the future of electric pontoon power. They look similar in design to an outboard engine but usually are much smaller and sleeker in design. They connect to your steering wheel just like an outboard and typically have a remote power control handle similar to the throttle control used on an outboard engine. Some electric outboards have power tilt just like an outboard and all

have charging systems built right into the boat. SINCE 2006 THE TORQEEDO CRUISE MODEL ELECTRIC MOTORS HAVE TAKEN OVER AS THE # 1 SELLER, WORLD WIDE

Trim tab mounted electric motors typically 2 equal power electric motors are used, one mounted on the back of each pontoon. The motors are installed on adjustable plates similar to trim tabs so they can be raised or lowered into the water.

They can be used alone or in conjunction with an outboard motor. Unlike an electric outboard that is steered in a conventional manor by your steering wheel, with these units one motor operates in forward and the other in reverse in order to turn your boat. Steering is handled by a joystick type controller similar to the way you would fly a jet fighter. Steering is intuitive in that you just move the joystick in the direction you want to go. Move the joystick left, right, forward  or back and the electric motors act as required in order to accommodate your command. One added benefit of this type of control is that the pontoon boat can literally turn in place without moving forward or back. (Handy for maneuvering in

tight quarters or at your dock) THIS TYPE OF MOTOR DOES NOT WORK WELL IN WEEDY LAKES AS IF ANY THING GETS ON 1 PROPELLER, YOU CAN NOT STEER THE BOAT.

Cavitation plate mounted electric motors. These electric motors, one or two depending on pontoon boat size, mount on the cavitation plate of your existing outboard motor. They are used to compliment your outboard motor so you have the option of using your boat on internal combustion restricted lakes or to just have a quiet, environmentally friendly power source to add to your pontoon boat experience. These motors will ride under the water level and function at trolling speeds but ride clear of the water during outboard engine operation. USUALLY FIT 40 HP & UP.


Are electric engines cost effective?

Typical cost for an electric engine on your boat will be about the same as that for a small outboard engine.
 

Cost will include the propulsion unit itself, batteries and some sort of on board charger and or solar panels. Continuing costs may include battery replacement after several years and infrequent repairs to the propulsion unit. Significant savings can be realized over an outboard engine in that there is no cost for fuel and other than battery removal winterization is not required.

Costs can be as low as $99.00 to $469.00 for a simple fishing style trolling motor. $1,200 to $1,800 for a cavitation plate mounted system to upward of $5,000 for a state of the art system with on-board charger and solar panels.

Electric outboards with batteries typically run in the $2,500 to $4,300 range


Are Solar kits available?
Yes, LOGOBOAT.COM has inexpensive kits designed to do the power requirements needs to power your  dock lights, charge your boat battery or to charge many batteries to run your electric boat. Kits can be portable to take with you for use on the motor home or the use at a remote campsite. For more information 402-334-5908
Replace costly diesel, propane or gas powered generators with clean solar power. Solar panels can charge one or more batteries, or even run substantial electrical loads. These panels are workhorse power producers for heavy marine and remote off-grid applications. Multicrystalline panels generate a higher power output in the same footprint as older designs, using a higher grade of crystalline cells. A single panel produces up to 8AMP (130W). Plug-n-Play connectors allow simplified expandability up to 24 AMPS using three 8 AMP panels connected to the right size of Charge Controller (sold separately). Expansion is unlimited with the use of additional Charge Controllers. These panels are compatible with older Solar Pro Plug-n-Play panels. Kits includes two or three panels (depending on model) and connectors.

Uses of our Solar Kits.

Designed to withstand rigorous weather conditions, these panels provide  12 VOLT TO 48 VOLT DC power for battery charging, running onboard electronics, and other electrical needs. High-efficiency polycrystalline cells convert sunlight to electricity quietly, without pollution or greenhouse gases, day after day, season after season. BATTERY LIFE IS DOUBLED WITH THE USE OF ON BOARD SOLAR CHARGING.

Using breakthrough technology perfected by years of research, these panels use a cell surface to reduce reflection of sunlight, and structured to improve conversion efficiency. An anti-reflective coating provides a uniform blue color and increases the absorption of light in all weather conditions.

Solar panels on boats, pontoons, canoes, kayaks.
