Vision Marine Emotion 180 hp Electric Outboard

The batteries of this 180 hp or better 75 kWh electric outboard can be charged on a regular 220 V power outlet.

The engine, battery pack, BMS (Battery management system), charger, monitor, throttle controls and all the other components needed to power the boat are included.

I gave the electric outboards some attention earlier here on RIBs ONLY.

Vision Marine Technologies is a publicly traded company (Nasdaq) which is already 25 years active in the boating industry. It is in the business of designing and manufacturing electric outboard powertrain systems and related technologies.

DEEP SPEED by SEALENCE – Electric Jet Boat Propulsion

Exclusive review of the new Innovative Electric Jet Propulsion DEEP SPEED, a product developed and built by the in 2017 founded Italian company Sealence. Here it’s used on a Scanner RIB. So it has its place here.

This particular propulsion system is the equivalent of 1600 hp.

Deep Speed’s baseline “Water is the only footprint you will leave behind” seems to say it all when it comes to marine propulsion. Of course there are the batteries … It must be possible to shrink them with even more power or replace them with a hydrogen system. But that will take a very long time.

Location: Santa Margherita Ligure, Genoa, Italy.
