PacMotor is one and only dual thruster system on the market
Two thrusters
This is the first and only dual-motor system on the market. Single-motor designs force you to turn in a wider radius, making navigation clumsy and imprecise. Typical vessels rely on the use of a keel for steering and stability. Instead, PacMotor uses propellers to adjust your course, simply by altering the speed and direction of the propellers’ rotation. PacMotor lets you turn a full 360° circle when you want to move and keeps you in place when you don’t. Enjoy exceptional maneuvering and remote-control responsiveness on every course.

Easy to switch between motoring and paddling
Go out on the water with zero hassle. With the thrusters lowered into the water, there’s no extra effort required to keep your kayak on course. Just sit back and relax, enjoying the natural beauty all around you. Whenever you’re ready to start paddling, the motors can be lifted out of the water in one easy motion. This feature is also great for passing through shallows or avoiding underwater obstacles.

Safety features
Motor activity will not initiate without remote control connectivity. Motor activity will cease if the remote battery dies or malfunctions, or if connection to the remote is lost.
Floating remote
In case the remote falls overboard, PacMotor’s remote control is designed to float at the water’s surface. No sinking, no stressing.

Customizable speed and distance
When cruising long distances, PacMotor’s remote control throttle lets you choose how fast you go. Push the pedal to the metal for full throttle, or save battery power and extend your run time with a more relaxed pace.

PacMotor`s signature powerhouse battery box
It’s our tech masterpiece created with kayakers in mind—with the perfect balance of thrust, weight, and runtime to help you enjoy kayaking to the fullest. Specifically designed to complement our dual-motor system, it’s PacMotor’s favorite battery.

PacMotor. You either love it or hate it.
In preparation for the kickstarter campaign launch, we had many discussions with users about the PacMotor concept. Obviously, the idea provokes polar attitudes. People either hate it or fall in love with PacMotor at first sight. Those who have a negative attitude towards the pacmotor think that we are depriving people of the pleasure of paddling. This is fundamentally wrong, we love paddling.

But we believe that the experience of kayaking is about so much more than just paddling, and it shouldn’t be hampered by paddling, either. That’s why we engineered PacMotor — a revolutionary portable motor with joystick control and dual thrusters for effortless kayaking in fresh and salt water.

There are many issues around kayaking that go beyond paddling:
Would you like effortless control over your kayak while you fish?
Maybe you want some additional security and muscle during long distance kayak trips, or out on open sea waves?
Do health issues keep you from extensive paddling?
Or maybe you just want to enjoy the outdoors without the workout?
Whatever the case may be, PacMotor has got you covered.

This is the first and only dual-motor system on the market. PacMotor uses propellers to adjust your course, simply by altering the speed and direction of the propellers’ rotation. It lets you turn a full 360 degrees when you want to move and keeps you in place when you don’t. PacMotor’s frame is designed to fit 90% of kayaks of all shapes and sizes right out of the box. It installs firmly and securely without the need for bolts or any drilling into your kayak. Its unique grip system is similar to what’s used to secure equipment on trailers. It's flexible yet tough. With PacMotor, you get the best of both worlds — Whenever you’re ready to start paddling, the lightweight motors can be lifted out of the water in one easy motion. This feature is also great for passing through shallows or avoiding underwater obstacles.
