Driving an Electric RS Pulse 63

At the recent South Coast Boat Show, Motor Boat & Yachting editor Hugo Andreae took a test drive of the RS Pulse 63, the first electric RIB he’s been aboard.

Should you be interested, I’ve posted earlier news about the RS Pulse 63 with a view on the battery storage.

The video in this post shows the actual drive and experiences.
