RACER:  High Power to Weight Ratio for ultralight Racers in 48 and 72 Volt Configurations

  • The Racer has no mounting system and relies on a transverse beam to be constructed to which the Racer is lagged down. The beam is the alignment and requires a skilled fiberglass technician to accomplish this. We recommend the Racer for Original Equipment Manufacturers who like to build boats that win races! The Racer Drive weighs in at 57 lbs.
  • 18 KW Maximum Power, 10 KW continuous Power

Drive Weight:  60 lbs plus weight of controller and cables.

The future is electric for inshore racing sailboats!

Twin Racer Drives can be mounted on a sailboat or runabout for superior control and twice the power.   They are so small and light they can be mounted under furniture in the mid section of the boat.      Think of the possiblities that small and light can give you when designing your next sailboat.     Usually the diesel motor location limits the interior design, causing builders to place the engines further aft, under the companionway,  creating additional down angle in the drive.    The Racer is small and light enough it could be mounted pretty much under any interior component on a boat, at the right place for the drive to be in the boat for maximum efficiency.    A cooling duct is recommended for any installation in a tight space to prevent ambient temperature buildup in the drive.

The Racer is great for small runabout boats and dinghy’s.

Drive Height and Base Size can be customized for your mount.
