The Kahe start-up

KAHE, a French start-up based in Lacanau (near Bordeaux), has imagined, designed and industrialized a new, innovative 3-in-1 electric motor for boats. It’s eco-friendly and will contribute to the energy transition on the water.

Dedicated to light craft, such as dinghies, small boats, fishing boats and small sailboats, it boasts 3 innovative and differentiating qualities:

1- it replaces a combustion engine on a small boat in 1 minute, offering :

0 hydrocarbon emissions into the water
0 air emissions
0 noise
0 odors


2- it’s highly innovative because it’s modular. 3 products in 1

The same motor can be transformed in 1 click :

from boat engine to watercraft propeller (stand-up paddle and canoes)
from boat motor to underwater scooter
from underwater scooter … to boat engine


3- it’s virtuous. Allowing the transformation of an internal combustion engine into a gentler electric motor contributes to the decarbonization of the sector.

To bring this project to fruition, KAHE has opted for an innovative battery solution that is itself eco-responsible, in partnership with another French start-up, Gouach. The battery is solderless, removable, repairable and recyclable.
