Correct Craft’s Watershed Innovations said it added Torqeedo and SeaDek as partners on a new fishing boat project. Watershed will be working with sister company SeaArk Boats and University of Central Florida engineering students to build an ultra-quiet aluminum fishing boat with electric propulsion.
“I know that SeaDek will provide the noise-reducing qualities that the Watershed and UCF engineering team are looking for to develop one of the industry’s most quiet aluminum fishing boats,” Kurt Wilson, president and CEO of SeaDek, said in a statement.
Torqeedo CEO Christoph Ballin added that electric drives offer such advantages as noise and pollution reduction. “We’re excited to see what these future leaders create,” he said.
“Our Correct Craft team is committed to partnering with innovative organizations that will help us deliver the industry’s most innovative products,” Correct Craft CEO Bill Yeargin said. “Partnerships are a key part of our innovation strategy.”
