Build to last and last and last

We have made things simple for you. We created a maintenance free and robust inboard motor to give you peace of mind. This might just be the last motor you’ll ever buy.

The strong & silent type

The highly efficient Saietta axial flux motor is at the heart of every Propel product. Going further on a charge, you get to spend more time on the water, in blissful silence.

Inner strength

In boating, the name of the game is torque. Standard motors cannot generate a lot of it. Our large-diameter Saietta Axial Flux motor can, making it much more efficient and quieter than its traditional counterparts.

These realistic numbers are based on the Duurzame Sloepen DS680 sloop, a large and luxurious sloop measuring 6.80 m by 2.50 m and with a displacement hull. Cruise speed equals 70% of the hull speed. The numbers above are based on a 100% discharge but Propel advises discharging to 20% in normal operations. Please contact our product specialists for more performance sheets.

Try for yourself

We could go on and on about the Propel experience. But rather than taking our word for it, why not take one for a spin or visit one of our stores instead.
