Combi E-Thruster electric outboard engines are characterized by their robustness, sleek design and reliability. Our motors have been developed for long-term use and have a high efficiency. The Combi E-Thruster line uses Asynchronous AC motors and synchronous Brushless PM motors, making them very user-friendly and continuously variable. The fact that they are brushless also makes them low-maintenance.
The Combi E-Thruster is a silent motor for optimal sailing pleasure, available as standard outboard model and tiller steered in both short and long-shaft configurations.
Why the Combi E-Thruster
If you are looking for an outboard model, the Combi E-Thruster offers the ideal solution. The engine comes supplied as standard with twist-grip tiller (manual) but can also be supplied as for remote control. (cable steering) that comes with a joystick.
You have quiet electric motors and near silent electric motors. With a Combi electric motor you can enjoy the sounds on the water that you would otherwise not hear while motoring.
Electric motoring is sailing without emitting harmful CO² gases, such as combustion engines.
By using the latest technologies and optimized design, our engines offer high efficiency at low power.
We use brushless motors, which reduces maintenance to a minimum.
Simple to use and robust
At Combi we develop all our engines under our own management. This allows us to maintain good control over the quality and durability of our engines. The engines are robustly built and shaped and can withstand a collision and rough use – both vital for commercial or rental operations.
Standard or Tiller version
The E-Thruster is available in 2 models, the standard model has all the components integrated into the outboard. The tiller comes with an external control box . It can be operated manually or connected to a steering system. Would you rather not see an outboard behind your boat, or would you like to place a motor in a enginewell but there is little room. Then this is the solution for you.
Because of our long experience, we know what is important to you. For example, we have designed,a mechanical throttle with electronic potentiometer which cannot be rotated out of position or wear out with heavy use.
Over 40 years of rubust and reliable
This Combi 500S is one of our first Combi electric motors from 1981 and is still in service today. Over the past 35 years, it has sailed around 900 hours every season; a total of 31,500 hours. That amounts to 4,900 hours more than a typical commercial pilot can fly during their entire career.
Remote control and remote steering
Do you have a steering console and you want an electric outboard? No problem, our motors are prepared for remote control and remote control. We have a special kit in which you can easily adjust the engine.
The Combi E-Thruster has a robust design and is built for heavy duty and long-term use. The E- thruster line consists of different capacities ranging from 1000 watts to 3.5 kW and are available as an outboard or tiller model both in short and long-tail version. The electric motors use a battery voltage of 24 to 48 Volt DC depending on the capacity of the motor. There is also the possibility to tilt the motors.
