    Would you know any 50-200 hp electric pod with nozzle around the propeller and the electric motor on the hub?

    Curious about your application. Why would you want that combo? There are ducted prop e-drives with shafts, both steerable and fixed. And there are podmotor open drives. I doubt 50+hp can be passively cooled, so a podmotor will have higher maintenance than an inboard with forced cooling.

    Hi, thanks for your input. This was actually a client's request or suggestion. The client is used to bigger ships.
