Seattle-based Pure Watercraft just announced three new electric boat packages that turn a standard boat hull into an electric boat and have you leaving a wake without any exhaust fumes.
The timing couldn’t be better, as its perfect weather to be out on a boat (and away from crowded beaches). But instead of burning more gas to get out on the lake or through the surf, electric boats can provide a better experience with quieter and cleaner operation.
Pure Watercraft’s new electric boat packages are designed to do just that – get boats moving on electric power. And to that end, they are now rolling out their newest packages that are designed to interface their Pure OUTBOARD motors the most popular hulls from industry partners TRACKER, Sun Tracker, and Still Water.
The Pure Watercraft system is fully integrated with a 25 kW electric motor and high energy-density Li-ion battery pack. According to Pure Watercraft, the motor uses a “high-efficiency propeller running at about half the RPM of a typical gas outboard, which allows their system to provide about 30% more propulsion than a conventional outboard of the same power level.” That means that the 25 kW motor is more equivalent to a typical 50 hp gas outboard.
As Pure Watercraft’s CEO Andy Rebele explained in a statement provided to Electrek:
“Pure Watercraft is redefining the way people experience boating and is committed to delivering innovative marine propulsion solutions that are more enjoyable and accessible for everyone, and more sustainable for our planet. By offering complete boat packages that combine Pure Watercraft’s revolutionary all-electric Pure Outboard with industry-leading hulls known for their durability and efficient design, we’re making it easier than ever before for our customers to enjoy a best-in-class electric boating experience at a price that is competitive with similar gas models.”
The three boat packages include a bass fishing boat, a pontoon boat, and a rowing coaching launch.
