What is NoPuttPutt?
NoPuttPut is a solar electric motor propulsion system designed to convert a narrowboat from diesel to solar powered battery electric, or indeed to fit out a new boat.
Makes the most effective use of the available solar energy using LiFePO4 batteries and a brushless motor.
NoPuttPutt can also be used to power some or all of the appliances on the boat.
Easy to fit
NoPuttPutt has been designed to be simple to fit with modular, high quality components.
Please get in contact if you would like to replace your diesel with solar power and we will put you in contact with your nearest NoPuttPutt approved installer. The good news is that they will also take out your diesel for you.
If you are a professional boatyard or boat builder and would like to become a NoPuttPutt approved installer, then please get in contact.
The best battery for the job
NoPuttputt stores the energy that the solar panels provide in a Lithium (LiFePO4) battery. The advantages of this over Lead Acid batteries (also Lead Carbon or Gel or AGM batteries) are:
- Much better charging cycle life
- Better charging and discharging efficiency
- Much greater maximum usable capacity
- Better value
- Greater power density
- More compact
That's why the Lithium battery in a NoPuttPutt system is maximising the available solar energy to power the motor and appliances.

Powered by the sun!
Your solar electric powered NoPuttPutt system runs using solar power provided from sun without draining the battery, thus giving you a buffer of up to three days cruising from the battery on shorter winter days. At any time you have added reassurance of being able to top up at a marina from a shore line.
