Argos Nautic is offering its 305 RIB tender with Torqeedo electric power.

Argos Nautic said its 305 model will be available with a 20-hp-equivalent Torqeedo Cruise 10.0.

The 10-foot RIB tender is currently offered with Evinrude, Mercury and Yamaha engine options.

"More and more yacht buyers are looking for greener, more efficient vessels," Argos Nautic CEO Ignacio Vadillo said in a statement. "It was only natural for us to look to a sustainable electric propulsion solution for our tender."

The Cruise 10.0 will plane light boats at 28 mph, yet makes almost no sound, which Argos Nautic said makes it ideal for conversation and listening to the Fusion audio system while aboard.

For buyers seeking a traditional power package, the 305 is available with two- or four-stroke gasoline outboards; 30 hp is recommended, but the tender will accommodate 25 to 40 hp.

Argos Nautic said Patrizio Facheris designed the four-passenger RIB. Prices range from $30,000 to $42,000 for gas-powered boats and $48,000 to $56,000 for electric power.
