Evoy Storm electric boat motor gains fresh look as production nears

24 Jan 2023

Electric boat motor manufacturer Evoy has unveiled a new cover for its 223kW Storm outboard motor, as it gears up to start deliveries later this year.

The Norwegian firm claims that the Storm is the ‘strongest’ electric outboard motor yet to go into production, allowing most boats to pass 50 knots - that’s around 57 mph. The system is powered by two 63kWh batteries and uses an 800V architecture.

The new cowling for the Storm motor has been developed in collaboration with Eker Design, and the firms worked to create a versatile design that would work on the varying machines the Storm will power. Shown for the first time at the Düsseldorf boat shops, it shares similar styling with the firm’s less powerful Breeze outboard motor.

Evoy has already reached deals to supply motors for boats produced by Axopar and Nimbus. Evoy boss Leif Stavøstrand said that the design “fits as well on a workboat in the harsh conditions along the all-encompassing Norwegian coast as along the graceful Côte d’Azur or on the great North American lakes”.

Evoy has decided to focus on producing electric motors rather than entire craft because it feels that is the easiest way to help electric boats scale up quickly. The firm has also recently agreed a deal with Say Carbon Yachts to supply its Hurricane inboard motors for use on three Say 29 yachts.
