Pure Watercraft, the Seattle based manufacturer of electric boats and propulsion systems, unveiled its all-electric pontoon boat at CES in Las Vegas and opened pre-orders on its web site. This is the first product to result from Pure Watercraft’s collaboration with General Motors announced last November.
Pure Watercraft’s 7.4m-long pontoon boat can transport up to 10 people and offers a top speed of up to 23 mph. It is powered by single or twin Pure Outboard motors and a GM battery pack of up to 66 kWh.
Pure Watercraft says, “It offers versatility for cruising, watersports and fishing while providing a quiet boating experience that only an all-electric boat can”. Pricing is expected to start at $45,000 for the single outboard version.
“Pontoon boating is booming, because people want to get out on the water and socialise with family and friends in the great outdoors. This boat gives them a more enjoyable experience, free from engine noise and the hassles of fuel and maintenance, at a price comparable to that of a conventional pontoon boat.”
Pre-orders are currently being accepted on the company’s website, with first deliveries expected in late 2022.
