Nautique rolls out all-electric model

Nautique announced its first fully electric wakeboard boat with the Super Air Nautique 230 E.

Its first viewing will be Feb. 11-19 at the Detroit Boat Show in the Silver Spray Sports Nautique dealership exhibit. The boat will make additional appearances at Nautique events throughout 2012.

The Super Air Nautique 230 E contains two automotive electric motors that provide all of the power necessary to meet a boater’s needs. Combined, the two electric engines offer 160 kW of peak output, the company said. 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 lithium-ion batteries with an available storage capacity of as much as 78 kilowatt-hours.

“I am incredibly proud of our team and our partners, LTS, for making this new all-electric Nautique a reality,” Nautique president/CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement. “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.”
