20,000 hrs no maintenance. Good run time.. Im not big on EVs but for a small outboard batteries really make a lot of sense.

my feelings is that electric boat propulsion currently makes most sense for dinghies - essentially on a small scale and for short run times. 

if i had a need for dinghy - less than a tender to a yacht - just to do the ship-shore-ship trip i think a battery elec outboard would be high on the list

i like the 'minimalism' of this;

Interesting prop, must be more efficient being long, presume slow prop rpms also...

Car ferries for Sweden. self; berthing and releases of its moorings, charges during the offload of cars in about 4 mins... clever technology taking off in Europe.

why do they have to make the boat a spaceship design. Get these awesome engines into conventional tried and tested boats people want and the uptake will start.

Horses for courses (literally). After x amount of years being confined to the restrictions and dimensions of combustion engines, designers finally can embrace new tech and possibilities and can concentrate on details for making their products fit the purpose.

Yup.
Hydrogen the way to go.
One battery instead of a whole bank.
Smaller footprint during production and recycling.
Far better for the environment and the slaves used to mine rare earth metals for the batteries in third world countries. Thumbs Up

I shudder to think what this thing cost with those batteries. Also did you notice the article saying Ports of Auckland are expecting delivery of a bigger one in 2021?
