The Clean & Quiet Alternative

Energy Solutions Appointed as Exclusive UK Distributor

Energy Solutions are delighted to announce that they have signed an agreement to be the exclusive UK distributor for WaterWorld's range of electric inboard motors.

WaterWorld manufactures a range of 48 volt DC electric motors, designed to replace small diesel engines in boats up to 10 metres and larger canal craft. Energy Solutions will initially be selling two models - 4.0 kW and 10.0 kW – as well as being the service partner for UK, carrying stock of spare parts. 

The electric engines are designed to be a direct replacement for a traditional diesel engine both in size and cost.  Perfect for narrowboats, small coastal craft and inland waterway fleets that are looking to reduce both noise and emissions the engines offer an efficient and reliable electric alternative. Already well established in the Netherlands the motors are a proven and tested option for fleet operators and private owners. 


The WaterWorld models include a motor and controller in one unit on adjustable engine supports, thrust bearings, relay, digital colour touch screen display and throttle. 


Explains Hugh Cunningham at Energy Solutions: “We see a great potential for the WaterWorld electric motors in the UK market. This is an affordable electric option and easy to install – just one unit for motor and controller, no water cooling system and a direct connection to the shaft, without any gearbox.”

As the demand on the marine industry grows to provide clean, quiet, as well as affordable alternatives to diesel engines the team at Energy Solutions are confident that the motors will satisfy boat builders and end-user requirements.


The electric engines are designed to be a direct replacement for a traditional diesel engine both in size and cost.


Concludes Hugh:  “Energy Solutions offer a range of 48 volt chargers and inverter/chargers as well as lead acid and lithium batteries to complement the WaterWorld system. The efficiency of the drives mean that users will be able to get an excellent range from the systems as well as being easy to service and update – a real bonus for fleets.”

WaterWorld are launching a range of larger models during 2019 extending the range and potential even further for owners. Energy Solutions will be working with WaterWorld to eventually distribute the entire range alongside the Dutch distributor De Stille Boot  who will be providing sales and application support to the team.


The system comes with a modern, easy to read display.
