Proven and reliable electric power for your dinghy

EP Carry has the proven power to reliably push your dinghy, tender, or small boat to shore and back. Designed and assembled in the USA by experienced salt-water sailors, EP Carry offers ultra-quiet power with control, comfort, and safety. With a total weight of 21 lbs. for motor and battery pack, itís light enough to lift and carry easily on and off your boat. And because itís easy to set up, operate, and take down from a seated position, you can say goodbye to standing or leaning off-balance over your transom.

Powerful, portable, safe ó the advantage of an electric outboard

Competitive range & speed

Most dinghies will achieve max speeds of 3.3 to 4.5 knots. Typical ship to shore use results in 2 to 3 days of run time without the need to charge the battery. If you recharge each evening, range is not an issue.

  • Full throttle — 1 hour = 3.3 to 4.5 Nm
  • Half throttle — 2 hours = 5 to 7 Nm
  • Slow-speed — 3 to 7 hours =7 to 11 Nm
Gas outboard alternative
Output speeds to expect on typical boats:
  • 10 ft Walker Bay @ 450 lb, 3.6 kts
  • 9 ft Inflatable Riken at 250 lb, 3.4 kts
  • 12 ft Gig Harbor Pt Defiance @ 520 lb, 3.9 kts
  • 8.5 ft Port-A-Boat @ 250 lb, 3.4 kts
  • 16 ft Wenonah canoe @ 300 lb, 4.7 kts
