NAUTIQUE ANNOUNCES 100% ELECTRIC WAKEBOARD BOAT
ORLANDO, FLA (January 20, 2012) – Today, Nautique announced its first 100% electric wakeboard boat, the Super Air Nautique 230 E.
Since debuting the Ski Nautique E a year ago, Nautique has been working to develop a 100% electric wakeboard boat and today Nautique introduces to the world, the Super Air Nautique 230 E.
The first viewing of the Super Air Nautique 230 E will be at the Detroit Boat Show on February 11-19, 2012 in the Silver Spray Sports Nautique dealership exhibit. This boat will make additional appearances at Nautique events throughout 2012.
This first-of-its kind 100% electric Super Air Nautique 230 E contains two automotive electric motors that provide all the power necessary to meet the everyday needs of our customer. Combined, these two electric engines offer a powerful 160 kW of peak output. Like the Ski Nautique E, the electric motors connect through a transfer case to the propeller shaft of the boat producing performance worthy of the Nautique Brand.
The Super Air Nautique 230 E is equipped with state of the art lithium ion batteries with an available storage capacity of up to 78 kW-hours.
“I am incredibly proud of our team and our partners, LTS, for making this new all-electric Nautique a reality!” stated Nautique President/CEO Bill Yeargin. “Since the debut of the Ski Nautique E a year ago, our goal has been to produce an all-electric wakeboard boat that has the performance boat owners expect from a Nautique along with Nautique’s extraordinary quality, innovation and industry leading technology. This is the first of many exciting announcements from Nautique in 2012,” Yeargin added.
