Quad Marine gains patent for electric catamaran

Publish date:

Quad Marine said it has been granted a patent for its Quad 44 electric catamaran.

The company said its first patent covers various elements of the catamaran. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is processing a second patent that covers additional elements of the boat.

The company said the Quad 44 flagship is being marketed as the Tesla of the marine industry and is the culmination of a 10-year development project to create the world’s most advanced four-cabin electric cruising catamaran without the design flaws and compromises of traditional boats.

The company recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise capital for the production of the Quad 44.
