Going electric

Appointed as sole distributor for the UK, Ireland and Channel Islands for the Norwegian based brand, ThrustMe is the latest addition to the SM Group (Europe) Limited (SMG) portfolio.

ThrustMe, established in 2015 to develop electrical propulsion solutions, has over 20 years of experience in the Subsea and aviation industry. This latest venture to produce products with a functional, lightweight and smart design uses the team’s knowledge and know-how to introduce the Cruiser and Kicker Electric Outboards.

The Kicker is designed for ship-to-shore tenders, small lake boats and inshore fishing inflatables. It weighs in at just 4.4Kg (nearly 10kg lighter than the smallest petrol outboard), making it the lightest electric outboard with a built-in lithium battery available on the market today.  Combined with a runtime of up to 2.5 hours, remote control and six forward and reverse speeds, the Kicker is the ideal portable outboard solution for the marine and fishing market. 

The Cruiser, weighing in at even less, 3.3Kg, is designed specifically for the water sports market and is primarily aimed at Kayakers, Canoeists and SUP users. The motor can easily be interchanged between canoes and boards making it excellent value and being lighter, the runtime is increased to up to 4 hours. 

SMG, as with all new products, has thoroughly tested the motor in both inland and harbour conditions and says it has been extremely impressed. 

Nick Edgington, New Business Sales Manager from SMG commented,  “It has been high on our agenda to introduce a lithium-powered outboard to our portfolio in response to our customers’ demands. We are keen to ensure that the selected brand is aligned with our strategy of offering quality and value. The ThrustMe products not only answer this, but also have many unique features that we know will be popular in the marine market. ThrustMe has a great understanding of what is needed to become a market-leader.”
