The world of electric outboards is growing fast. Battery technology improvements have made portable motors up to about 4kW – roughly 6hp – a viable option for small boats, so long as you don’t mind paying a bit more. In fact now, January 2020, we have seen the market for petrol outboards of 4hp and less all-but disappear, pretty much everyone is buying electric at that size (in new sales).
