Mitek Revolve: Cutting-Edge Electric Sterndrive Technology

Revolutionizing Marine Propulsion: The Birth of the Revolve Engine

In the quest for more sustainable, efficient, and convenient marine propulsion systems, Mitek’s Revolve outboard engine stands out as a beacon of innovation. Partnering with AST and Carbon Yachts to deliver this groundbreaking technology, Mitek has set a new standard in the realm of electric marine mobility.

Unveiling the Revolve: A Paradigm Shift in Marine Engines

At the heart of Mitek’s innovation is the Revolve, a 100% electric sterndrive engine that redefines the marine propulsion landscape. Unlike traditional outboard motors, the Revolve engine boasts a unique ability to rotate on its own axis, transitioning seamlessly between ON mode, with the propeller immersed and ready for action, and OFF mode, where the propeller retracts, minimizing the engine’s footprint. This patented system eliminates the cumbersome process of mounting and dismounting outboard motors, a task that can prove challenging even for seasoned sailors, especially under adverse weather conditions.

How does it work?

The Revolve’s design philosophy centers around bridging the gap between technological capability and its practical application to enhance life on board. The engine’s rotation mechanism, paralleling the axis, ensures that it remains installed and ready for immediate use, vastly simplifying the tender or dinghy preparation process. This feature not only saves time and effort but also enhances safety and accessibility for users of all experience levels.

The ASTender 340 Revolve: A Testament to High-Performance and Sustainability

Carbon Yachts’ ASTender 340 Revolve is a testament to what modern engineering and environmental consciousness can achieve. Constructed entirely from carbon fibre, this tender prioritizes performance without compromising on sustainability. The lightweight, rigid carbon construction outperforms traditional RIBs (Rigid Inflatable Boats) in efficiency and durability, ensuring that the vessel neither deflates nor degrades under the sun.

Enhanced Performance and Efficiency

Equipped with Mitek’s 15hp electric engine, the ASTender 340 Revolve offers unmatched performance. Its ability to maintain a low profile during storage, without extending beyond the boat’s length and height, makes it an ideal choice for those seeking efficient garage and platform fitments. The electric engine not only reduces the tender’s carbon footprint but also offers significant advantages in terms of speed, range, and overall cost compared to conventional electric jets.

Environmental Impact and Range

The ASTender 340 Revolve is designed with sustainability at its core. The optimized hull shape requires 35% less power than a standard RIB, leading to reduced emissions. Moreover, the tender’s electric drive allows for an impressive range of 22.5 nautical miles at 25 knots and up to 120 nautical miles at 3 knots, ensuring that adventurers can explore the waters for extended periods without the need for frequent recharging.

Uncompromised Safety and Comfort

Safety and comfort are paramount in the design of the ASTender 340 Revolve. Its unsinkable nature, courtesy of the foam sandwich construction and waterproof compartments, offers peace of mind to its occupants. The absence of inflated tubes maximizes space, providing a spacious deck area unparalleled by other tenders of similar length. Additionally, the wide hull shape ensures stability and ease of boarding, while the high freeboard and deep V keel promise dry and comfortable rides.
