Delivering outstanding performance, in a simple compact package. The VSD10 is an electric conversion kit designed to convert a Diesel Saildrive into an electric system. The kit mounts on the existing Fibreglass saildrive mounting, and re-uses the saildrive lower leg unit. Due to the increased efficiency, and high torque properties of the electric motor, you need less electric power than diesel power. 

The model shown is developed for use with the Yanmar SD20 saildrive unit. We can also support you in converting other makes / models. If you require a higher power solution, please enquire about our VSD20 conversion kit.

Compact, efficient, quiet! The VSD10 package uses a high performance 10kW brushless electric motor to replace the inboard diesel engine.

Air cooled, and zero emission. No water cooling required, and no exhaust.
