Nautique just brought a 100% electric boat to the wake board and surf community. The GS22E is propelled by an electronic drive system designed by Ingenuity. A 120kW battery pack installed seamlessly in to the body of the boat delivers instant torque. The boat is super quiet, eco clean, and now no one will get asphyxiated from those nasty gas fumes during a surf set.
The boat looks like any other GS22, so she’s gorgeous and should deliver great performance and wake sessions. The drawback is you’ll be limited to 2-3 hour sessions out on the lake. So, we advise getting a quick charger so you can fully re-juice in an hour-and-a-half. The boat takes 10 hours to recharge when plugged into a regular AC outlet and four hours when plugged into a DC outlet. We expect this to improve with the rapid battery improvements as we’ve seen in the auto industry.
The GS22E lists at $292,711. Demos are available in Orlando. Place an order with a $5K reservation fee and be one of the first to surf electric on your lake.
