Shire Electric Outboard 48 Volt, made in the UK by Barrus 6hp 10hp 20 hp
Following years of research, development and testing, Barrus is pleased to launch a range of electric outboard motors to its Marine line-up.
In this first wave, three outboard engines are available in 6hp, 10hp and 20hp variations. These 48V outboards have a variable speed range that can be locked so they suit commercial and hire-fleet use perfectly.
With an adjustable leg length from short to long shaft, the Shire electric outboards are ready to pair with a range of vessels and the outboard tilt lock and adjustable transom angle position make rigging easy.
Shallow or dirty water is simply not a problem. The outboards have coolant reservoirs with a re-circulation pump housed within the leg, so no dirt or sand enters the system. Their compatibility with Mercury Marine prop shaft spline makes this only easier as they are readily available in different sizes for spares or replacement from Barrus.
Perhaps the cherry on the cake is that the system is belt drive, so no shafts, gears or oil changes are required, making them hassle-free maintenance!
Additional options are also available to enhance performance and ease of use including battery options such as lithium ion batteries and multiple battery packs that can be linked.
