Vintage Repower

Repower Your Passion
Upgrade your classic with a clean, quiet, reliable and lightweight, all-electric outboard system.

All-Electric Pure Outboard System

Revolutionary Performance

If your vintage/wooden hull accepts a 25-50 HP gas outboard, you can easily replace your current engine with a clean, quiet and powerful all-electric Pure Outboard System. Experience instant responsiveness, zero emissions, no maintenance, and longer outboard life.

  • Outboard weight of only 105lbs makes it easy on older/wooden transoms.
  • Battery pack size of only 15″ x 23″ x 9″ makes it easy to swap in for existing gas tanks.
  • Modular batteries mean it’s easy to add additional packs for extended range.
  • Low profile motor and near-silent operation means the focus is on your beautiful boat, not the motor.
