58’ Painted sailaway built by Cauldon Boats with fully operational, brand new Vetus electric propulsion system. If you are looking to fit out your own boat here is the perfect opportunity to do so with a future-proof craft that gives the ultimate silent cruising experience without the worry.
Propulsion is provided by a 10kW Vetus E-line electric motor giving the noise level of a sailing boat but the manoeuvrability of a motor boat. The motor offers 2 modes – ‘Eco’ for general canal cruising and ‘Power’ if river use is required. To further assist with manoeuvrability, the vessel is also fitted with Vetus Bow-Pro brushless bow AND stern thrusters with proportional control and continuous run time. These are operated by a single control so you can easily turn the boat on the spot or, lock them on to hold the boat into the bank while you tie the bow and stern ropes! – Ideal for single handed cruising.
The battery bank consists of 16 x 220Ah 48V AGM batteries which will give many hours run time. When power becomes low, a 6.5kw 1500rpm diesel generator is fitted to ensure there is always enough. Also onboard is a Victron Quatro 8kw 48V inverter charger with Cervo touch screen controller and DC dropper to allow fitting of 12v items. This unit also has solar panel capability.
Internally, the craft has water tank, ballast, flooring, sprayfoam, battens and windows. It is also painted in 2 pack and will come with fenders and ropes.
With fully fitted electric boats from builders now around the £200,000 mark, here is an opportunity for someone with the ability to fit out a boat to their requirements at a fraction of the cost and all the hard work already completed.
