The Hanse 315 e-motion rudder drive is an electric engine that replaces the diesel engine and its components and the complete sail drive. A 4 kW electric engine and a Gori folding propeller are integrated into the rudder shaft. This system significantly improves maneuverability and provides emission-free, almost silent propulsion.
The integrated engine in the rudder directs the thrust into the direction of the rudder. The extended rudder angle of 100 degrees allows the Hanse 315 to turn from standstill on her own axis. When docking and taking off parallel to the pier, the stern of the yacht can be pulled precisely to the dock. This is particularly advantageous in strong winds and narrow ports.
