The EV grin is spreading to the water with the launch of some flashy custom electric boats by a company called New Electric.
Electric Boats Bring on the EV Grin
New Electric custom builds these pure electric bundles of wave-hopping joy and says the instant torque is something you just have to expeirence on the water to get a true feel for what electric brings to the boating paradise.
Right now, New Electric is featuring 2 custom-built boats. Here's a rundown on what each one offers:
- The Ray Wright Delta is an aluminum hull boat with a lithium-ion battery pack and a HPEVS 35X2 AC motor. The motor puts out 126 horsepower and 257 pound-feet of torque.
- The Nedcraft Silverback features a DC motor and is a throwback boat made to resemble something you would have routinely seen on the water back in 1920s.
Price? Again, these boats are custom-made, so the price varies wildly depending on how you option it. Figure at least $70,000 and upwards of $130,000 if tricked out.
