Electrify your sailboat

A powerful and robust motor system that will easily help you against strong winds, will last you for a lifetime, and enables you to sail wherever you want. With the option for regeneration and integration with on board solar and wind energy, sailing was never this sustainable.

This is why you'd want our electric motor in your sailboat

During sailing, the battery is being recharged due to the natural movement of the propeller through the water. Free sustainable energy that enables you to boat longer. Sailing has never been more sustainable.

The 17.5 kW or 22 kW motor would be perfect for you.

Batteries for a full day of boating

We'll make an analysis of your energy need and offer you a tailored battery solution. Our lithium battery can be connected in parallel to easily extend the capacity. But think of just one battery for the 5 kW and up to five for the 22 kW electric motor.

A handy battery monitor from Victron which you can connect to your phone through Bluetooth.

With our own 3.5" display you have the perfect tool to monitor your motor system and see the status of the battery with.

With a Raymarine display you'll never get lost through their interactive maps.

We believe in a personal approach. Tell us about your needs and we'll create a tailored offer. No strings attached.

We're there for you

Before installation

A new propulsion system for your boat is an investment for the future. To make sure you get the best bang for your buck, we'll do everything to find the best system for your preferences. Based on your situation we'll do a site visit, you can test our system on one of our demo boats, and we'll of course answer any question you have along the way.


For the installation of the electric motor for your sailboat we can either link you to a technician out of our network, work together with you trusted boat technician so you can keep working with the same party, or help you install the system yourself in exceptional situations.


We believe that your electric motor should just work. That's why we work with the highest quality components and why our system doesn't need extensive maintenance to keep working. We believe you can enjoy our system for a long time, and therefore we give you a warranty of 5 years.

During the lifetime

We've designed the system in order to work for years without any hiccups. But for the occasion that something does happen, you can count on us. Just contact Green Marine and we'll make sure you are boating again in no-time. We'll link you with a technician out of our partnernetwork or one of our own technicians will help you on your way.

(5 stars)

Very happy with the conversion of our petrol engine to a fully electric drive from Green Marine. Good after-sales service even after the purchase. I really liked direct and personal contact. From the installation process to update & upgrade work 2 years later, always just as fast response and follow-up.

We bought our electric motor and li-ion battery here to install in our 'tuindersvlet'. Green Marine thought along with us and has good quality products. They also arranged an address where we could have the motor installed.

Do not hesitate. The best service and the best electric motors for on the water. I have been converting my boat for six months now. With a green marine 17.5 kW 48 volt motor. What a luxury compared to my old diesel. The immediacy of the forwards and backwards. The smooth power transfer. No water cooling. All reasons to choose green marine. In my opinion they are way ahead of the competition. The Tesla among boat engines. But with German reliability. Not to mention the service. Just old-fashioned good. Thank you . Daan and Green Marine you are doing a fantastic job.

Questions about going electric with a sailboat

How long can I boat with an electric motor in my sailboat?

In short: as long as you want. Based on the length, the width, the duration and the type of waters you boat in, we determine how much energy you'll need. We fit the battery pack based on these preferences. In the case you incidentally need more energy, we can fit a generator on board so that you never need to worry about your range.

Can I charge with normal shore power?

Yes, the charger we fit is compatible with a normal shore power connection.

Is an electric motor just as reliable as a diesel engine?

Just as? We'd say way more reliable. Our electric motor is maintenance free, so robust that it can be used for heavy-duty work, and really powerful as well. It will last you longer than a diesel engine, and cost less over its lifetime.

Why would I go electric?

Super powerful maneuvering, silent boating, no exhaust gases, almost no maintenance, better handling of the boat, and we can keep going with benefits. But if you tell us your situation we can be more precise on how it would benefit you.

Is the electric motor air-cooled?

It can be. Based on your boat, and the location of the motor in the boat we'll fit the motor that is best. Every motor and controller can be water-cooled as well.

Who is installing the electric motor in my sailboat?

That is up to you. We can match you with a technician out of our network of installers. Often your trusted boat technician can do the refit as well, and we'll support them in their work. In exceptional cases you can do the installation yourself, but you'll need experience in doing work like this, and we'll do a full commissioning after installation.
