Welcome to Electric Auxiliary - a simple, inexpensive and environmentally friendly alternative to internal combustion engines in sailboats up to about 35’ LOA.
Electric Auxiliary LLC is the commercialization of the battery powered auxiliary I have been using in my own boat for the past four years. An article about my experience was published in Good Old Boat Magazine - you can read it in the link at left.
Since then I have rearranged the components in one pre-wired unit, have developed a universal mounting system that makes installation easy and neat, have added a state-of-the art throttle control, and have made a variety of other improvements. Basically, however, it is the same system that has been my trusty auxiliary power for four seasons.
Please take a look through this website. I have tried to give you as much information as possible and to present it in a straightforward and objective way. You may find it unusual that I have provided links to the websites of my competitors, but my goal is to have informed customers who understand their choices.
Because we are a small company, we want to establish a personal connection with you - to make sure what we are selling is right for you, and, because boat engine installations vary widely, to be sure we include the correct mounting hardware for your specific needs.
