Boat off-grid systems

Enhance your marine experience with our advanced boat off-grid systems. Imagine a limitless sense of freedom on the water, supported by sustainable solar panels that effortlessly power your vessel. Smart charge controllers and powerful batteries ensure reliable energy storage, while our portable power stations complete your independence.

If you dream of an adventure on the water while reducing your carbon footprint, consider the power of the sun as your ally. Solar panels for boats offer the solution to being self-sufficient at sea, with your ship sailing smoothly without the need for fossil fuels.

Benefits of solar panels on your boat?

Discover the added value of installing solar panels on your boat. During longer cruises, it is essential to be able to rely on renewable energy sources to keep your boat running, and solar energy provides excellent support in this regard. With solar panels on board, you don't need to make frequent trips to the port to recharge batteries, so you experience complete freedom during extended trips.

We recommend putting together an integrated solar panel system, consisting of high-quality solar panels, a smart charge controller and a suitable battery. Increasingly, boat owners are also using portable power stations in combination with solar panels, both as a back-up system and a mobile charging solution. With the battery or power station, you are able to use the generated energy at any time for all your onboard equipment. Experience the freedom of sustainable boating with our tailor-made solar solutions for your boat.

How to choose the ideal solar panel?

When choosing between (semi-)flexible solar panels and aluminium-framed panels, considerations can be tricky. Our recommendation is for flexible panels, despite their higher average cost. However, they are lighter and more resistant to salt water because of their flexibility. Moreover, many models are overflowable, which offers a practical advantage on a boat.

Besides fixed panels, it is also useful to consider portable solar panels for extra power generation when needed. Portable panels offer the flexibility to generate power in different locations.

How do I calculate my energy needs?
  1. Prepare list: List all electrical appliances, including navigation equipment, lighting, refrigeration, and other devices.
  2. Determine energy consumption: Research the energy consumption of each appliance in watts per hour (W/h). You can often find this information in the manual or on the appliance itself.
  3. Estimate daily use: Estimate how many hours per day each appliance is in use.
  4. Calculate daily energy requirement: Multiply the power (in watts) of each device by the daily usage (in hours) and add it all up for the total daily energy requirement in watt-hours (Wh).
  5. Consider autonomy: Consider how many days you want to be off-grid without recharging and multiply the daily energy requirement by the desired number of days.

Follow these steps to determine the optimal energy requirement for your boat and choose the right solar panels and battery storage.

Explore off-grid freedom

Are you considering going completely off-grid? Discover various power solutions to suit your needs and requirements for an autonomous power supply on your boat. Take, for example, the Independence Kit with 5 kWh battery, a complete off-grid power solution from EcoFlow. This modular system offers customisable energy storage and backup, expandable from 5 to 15 kWh batteries. Ideal for boats thanks to its 3600 W AC output and two MPPT solar charge controllers.

Another example is the Anker F3800, which is easy to move around thanks to its thoughtful design with wheels. With up to 6 additional batteries, you reach a total capacity of 26,800 Wh, enough for 1 to 2 weeks of off-grid use. What really sets the F3800 apart is the powerful 16A output. This feature not only provides extra comfort on board, but also allows complete independence from external power sources. Combined with solar panels, it allows you to operate completely off-grid. Besides these powerful off-grid solutions, there are other innovative systems you can consider for self-sufficient power supply on your boat. Check out all power stations here.
