Marine

We have two different products ranges for boat and yacht owners, the horizontal axis LE-300 Marine and LE-450 wind generators plus the vertical axis LE-v50 and LE-v150 marine wind generators. All are designed and precision manufactured in the UK.

As well as our wind turbines, we supply best-in-class Solara marine solar panels appreciated for their ultra-high power output and salt-resistant, durable construction.

Ideal for ‘live-aboards’ and canal boats, the LE-300 Marine and LE-450 horizontal axis wind generators will keep your batteries charged whether you’re out on the high seas or moored up and away from your boat. These small wind turbines have a 1m rotor diameter, are manufactured in our UK factory and are considered more powerful than similar sized competitors.

LE-300 Marine is considered the best value wind charger for yachts and sailing boats with the lowest cost per watt according to Practical Boat Owner magazine, while the LE-450 is the most powerful small wind turbine with a 1m rotor, able to provide meaningful power levels at everyday wind speeds of 5-8m/s (11-18mph.)

  • 12V, 24V and 48V versions
  • Appreciated for its quietness
  • Lightweight – LE-300 Marine is 6.5Kg and LE-450 is 8Kg
  • Specifically designed for corrosive marine environment
  • Robust and reliable – proven to survive storm force winds up to 27m/s (60mph)

“As I write it is blowing 25 knots and I can hardly hear the LE-300 sitting inside the saloon. It is so quiet we often have to look up at the blades to see if it is working and we haven’t left the stop/switch on.”

Bea Freeman, a blue-water sailor who permanently lives onboard his 11 metre catamaran. Read the case study.

If you just want to protect your batteries when you’re not using the boat then our vertical axis trickle chargers, the LE-v50 and its bigger brother the LE-v150, are what you need.

  • Totally silent
  • Appreciated for its quietness
  • Compact and can fit neatly onto a mast, safely out of the way of a crowded deck
  • Marine quality finish give lasting performance
  • Virtually indestructible – they can be left to run through storm conditions!
