“The Elco Motors have only one moving part, so they are virtually maintenance free. I have owners who will be on extended cruises. The AC-powered Elco runs much cooler than a DC motor. That makes a difference when you get down south.”

Bryan Gittins owns his own boatyard – Channel Cutter Yachts in Ladysmith, British Columbia. Gittins has extensive knowledge of woodworking and owns the exclusive rights to manufacture the Falmouth Cutter 34 – the final design of Lyle Hess, a native Idahoan who called the 34 “The best boat I’ve ever designed,” a lofty statement from an architect with a devoted following and numerous designs under his belt.

Gittins puts immense care and craftsmanship into each boat he builds, so it should come as no surprise that he outfits his boats with Elco Electric Propulsion (EP) motors. With thousands of hours at sea and multiple major ocean passages, Gittins is a world-class sailor building top-notch vessels.
