Electric Calypso 23e debuting in Fort Lauderdale

Posted on

In a sign of the times, the Calypso 23e, powered by the Whisper XT electric outboard, will debut at a show known for big powerboats, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Capable of cruising at up to 8.5 mph, the Calypso 23e is powered by 600 pounds of military-grade Odyssey AGM dry-cell batteries and can be charged overnight from a standard 115-volt outlet, according to EPower Marine, the Boynton Beach, Fla.-based dealer that will show the boat.

“For less than $2 worth of electricity, anyone and everyone can enjoy — and afford — a relaxing day on the water,” said Capt. Todd Sims, vice president of EPower Marine. “In today’s world, people are actively looking for ways to unwind [while] keeping costs minimal. Our customers find electric boats their answer.”

EPower Marine will exhibit at the Broward County Convention Center. The Fort Lauderdale show runs from Oct. 30 to Nov. 3.
