At Covey Island Boatworks we built our 1st Solar Electric Ketch in 2004 and our 1st Hybrid yacht designed by Sparkman & Stephens in 2006. Electric & Hybrid marine propulsion is finally gaining in popularity and is more widely accepted now thanks to the automotive industry, advances in Lithium and AGM batteries, Regeneration, and public interest in sustainability and our environment.
As a result of the growing interest and demand for electric and hybrid boating solutions, Covey Island Boatworks is now selling the leading electric motors, outboards, inboards and sail drives. We will help design a fully integrated solution for your new boat and install it or repower your current boat. If you are interested in a new boat, we will design and build it with the propulsion system that meets your requirements. Alternatively, you may purchase the motors and other components directly from us. We stock the most popular ones and ship anywhere in Canada or the USA.
Torqeedo is the global market leader in the growing segment of electric marine propulsion by a long way. As pioneers in the field of water-based electromobility, we have set many standards since founding Torqeedo in 2005, reinforcing the lead of our motors over all other solutions available on the market. Superior technology and revolutionary benefits are what we set out to achieve, and every product that Torqeedo brings to market meets both these criteria. Torqeedo currently offers 32 electric boat drives ranging from 1 to 80 HP together with a large number of functional and innovative accessories such as solar charging technology, high performance lithium batteries, a smartphone app etc. All our motors operate at record levels of overall efficiency, the most important measure for an electric drive system as it determines potential power and range for a given battery supply. In addition, our performance in relation to motor weight is just as unique.
The marine division combines the high-end DC engines developed and manufactured by LMC Ltd. with our in depth knowledge of motor controllers to provide the most efficient marine propusion system available. We have more than 20 years of experience in making propulsion systems for sail and power boats around the world. With more than 1000 installations in boats we can assist you with re-powering an existing boat or a new build.

The sense of freedom, the rushing wind and water: experiencing the sea on a yacht moving in perfect harmony with nature is a passionate experience. Since 2007, the same passion has been driving Solbian to produce SolbianFlex photovoltaic panels: innovative, flexible, light and highly efficient. They provide energy where it is needed, a natural and environmentally-friendly source. Giovanni Soldini was one of the first sailors to choose SolbianFlex panels for his adventurous oceanic crossings, testing their quality and reliability in the harsh conditions on board. SolbianFlex panels are particularly suited to sailing yachts, but they are equally suited to applications in electric mobility, caravans and campers, trekking, tents and mountain huts, emergency structures and building integrated projects.
Solara modules generate electricity wherever you are SOLARA solar panels, components and complete photovoltaic systems are primarily being used in places where independence is most important: on RV’s and caravans as well as on sailing yachts and boats. Cottages in remote geographical locations; in technological equipment; at sea, in traffic control and telecommunications systems, all are becoming independent with SOLARA. SOLARA stand-alone systems are designed to work flawlessly in a wide range of climate conditions. They are extremely robust, can be used flexibly and generate maximum electricity yields even in unfavourable light conditions. To ensure the quality and performance capabilities of the SOLARA product range, all panels and mounting systems are manufactured in Germany. Every solar panel is tested and certified according to stringent quality standards and ISO requirements. Every completed solar panel is measured according to the international STC protocol and registered under an unchangeable serial number
