Princecraft Introduces Electric Boats With Torqeedo Propulsion

Combining more than 50 years of aluminum boat building with the latest in electric propulsion, Torqeedo and Princecraft have joined together to create new, electric boats. Princecraft's two, new pontoons were specifically designed around Torqeedo's electric outboards, while a fishing boat was updated to better accommodate the motor.

The 15' Brio 15e and the 17' Brio 17e are more compact and lighter than traditional pontoons. They also incorporate battery storage for the electric motor. The 14' Yukon DLe fishing boat was reconfigured to better fit an electric outboard. Currently, Torqeedo's Cruise 2.0 and 4.0R are offered with these models with possibly other Torqeedo motors available in the future.

'There are lots of gas-powered engine restrictions on lakes in Canada. These boats help get around those restrictions without sacrificing an excellent boating experience overall,' said Princecraft president Donald Dubois. 'Normally, boatbuilders create the boat first and then determine the method of propulsion, but we designed these craft around the electric motor.'

Princecraft is committed to creating unparalleled experiences on the water for fishing and boating enthusiasts with its professionally rigged-and-ready packages of aluminum fishing, pontoon and deck boats. The company is well-known for its unmatched craftsmanship, incomparable performance and promise of trouble-free boating.

With thrust equivalent to a 9.9 hp gas outboard, Torqeedo's Cruise 4.0R achieves an efficiency of more than 50%. Extremely powerful, it can push a well-stocked 24' pontoon boat with 25' pontoons and seven people aboard at a recorded speed of 6.1 mph. Operating on a 48V lead-gel, AGM battery bank, an integrated on-board computer combines information from the motor, batteries and the motor's GPS receiver to keep boaters aware of remaining battery power and range.

Founded in 2005, Torqeedo offers the most technologically advanced electric outboards on the market. For Information visit www.princecraft.com or www.torqeedo.com
