Elco Electric Motor Saildrive Coupling

2014 September 16


The new coupling connects Elco electric motors to Yanmar saildrives. The coupling makes electric propulsion a more viable option for retrofitting sailboats equipped with saildrives, with Elco motors. Besides the environmental benefits of electric motors, there is is improved maneuverability: the saildrive leg can be locked in the forward position while the motor itself switches direction, and Elco’s motors provides immediate high torque for quicker for those emergency stops. www.elcomotoryachts.com
