Probe’s Best Batteries for Boating

With summer fast approaching, it’s time to throw off the covers and get your boat ready for the water. Rick Rovelli of Probe shares valuable advice on choosing the ideal battery to suit your boating needs. Established over 50 years ago, Probe is South Africa’s leading importer, wholesaler and distributor of batteries, starters and alternators.

The right kind of battery for your boat depends very much on the purpose of the vessel.  Similar to the requirements of a sports car compared to an off-road vehicle, different boats serve different purposes.  To ensure that you’re getting the optimal battery to suit your needs it is important to recognise whether your boat has been designed for maximum speed over short distances, or whether it is more suited to longer sailing times.   The size and capacity of your vessel should also be taken into account when selecting your battery.
