What does the company name Evoy stand for?
Evoy comes from Electric Voyage. A voyage is by definition: «A long journey involving travel by sea or in space». Evoy will focus on the sea part firstly.
What does Evoy mean by boat? What is the size of fast boats you recommend for your system for?
A boat is in Evoy’s view between 0 and 15 meters or 0 and 50 foot. Good fits for our system are typically planning hull boats with inboards between 20 and 30 fot. The reason is that this size has moderate energy consumption, at the same time as having fairly heavy ICE systems installed. When removing the ICE system either in real life or during planning for new boats that frees up a lot of weight that can be used for the electric propulsion system. Since the motor ant converter typically only weighs between 100 and 200 kg (depending on specification on the boat) that again means there is a lot of room for the batteries, which again gives an acceptable range for most.
Where do I buy my Evoy Electric Propulsion System and how long does the delivery take?
For now, you can get your order by filling in our Pre-Order form. We are aiming to have the first deliveries in 2019.
Is Evoy systems just for new boats and businesses? Do you do retrofits?
Evoy’s standardized turn-key system can be used both in new and used boats. We will have regional partners for retrofit in customers boats.
How long time does it take to earn back the higher cost of first time investment?
This is very dependant on the system that is ordered and particularly the size of the battery system as it is the most costly part for now. But the calculations we have done so far, the ROI is typically between 500 and 1000 hours.
