Brunswick talks autonomous boat docking and slashed carbon emissions at CES

Brunswick Boats autonomy and electrification

Electric boats have been around for a long time, mainly in applications where the expectations for range and speed are lower than large powerboats. Now, companies like Taiga Motors and Nautique are leveraging electric motors’ low-end torque to enhance the water powersport experience – but bigger boats carry bigger expectations. Brunswick’s ACES strategy, revealed this week at CES 2022 in Las Vegas, aims to meet those expectations head-on.

You can make the new J-Force electric surfboard go 0-35MPH with the bend of your finger


How does going 35mph on a surfboard sound? No, it’s not a gadget in the upcoming James Bond film. J-Force, out of Germany, has developed a new electric powered board that puts out substantial power and is completely controlled by a wearable glove.

It doesn’t just stop there, J-Force also has a gorgeous new Jet Ski that produces zero-emissions and promises to be a much friendlier alternative to traditional gas operated watercraft. We have the full details below on both models.


A new solar and battery-powered boat that can cruise for more than 18 hours: the Tesla-21


Green Dream Boats is a startup based on the Baltic coast currently developing battery-powered boats. It’s first entry is the T-21, also known as Tesla-21, a 21-feet day boat powered by a battery pack and a 4-panel solar array. The boat has a comfortable cruising speed of 12 km/h (7.5 mph) which it can maintain for 18 hours on the battery alone.

On a sunny day, the boat can be entirely powered by sunlight with its solar array.
