Solara S170P43. Yacht Solar Panel 41 Watts.
This super-efficient Solara S170P43 yacht solar panel, part of the Solara M Series, was specially developed for maritime use, such as on boats, yachts, buoys and life rafts. If mounted on a solid base, it can be walked on without any risk of breakage. As the panel is bendable by up to 3%, it is also ideally suited for mounting on slightly curved surfaces.
The panel is assembled with very high efficiency mono-crystalline cells encased in a tough seawater-proof module.
The 43 individual cells give a consistently high electrical yield in low-light conditions, and in the diffuse light of autumn and winter.
The panel can be fastened in place with screws and glue. The mounting holes also allow easy attachment to a bimini-top, for example.
Solara thoroughly test each individual solar panel for operational reliability, weather resistance and long-term endurance.
- Mono-crystalline high-performance cells for maximum electrical yields

To mount this yacht solar panel on the deck of your boat, we recommend the following item:
The cable from the Solara S170P43 solar panel can be taken straight through the deck, with a suitable sealing compound such as Sikaflex 252i.
But if you need to connect two or more of these panels together and make a secure and watertight connection through the deck of your yacht:
- Small Deck Mounting Connection Box with Glands and Terminal Blocks. IP66 Watertight.
- Deck Solar Panel Connection gland. 1 way
To simplify the electrical connections to your battery and charge controller:
- Battery Connection Harness with fuse holder
- Cable set. For Single Battery Systems with cable ties and self adhesive mounting pads
- Cable set. For Dual Battery Systems with cable ties and self adhesive mounting pads
