Like a Porsche Taycan on the Water - August 28 - Vision Marine Goes After The WORLD SPEED RECORD for Fastest Electric Boat

Good Afternoon Carey​,

Get ready - Vision Marine Technologies (  is gearing up to attack the world speed record this weekend at the world renowned Lake of the Ozarks Shootout ( taking place August 28th-29th. 

Competing for the title as the fastest electric boat on the market, all eyes will be on Vision Marine. The company has made a splash in the boating industry, combating waterway pollution in a market where there is increased demand for environmentally friendly boats and engines. Just like the Porsche Taycan is the most powerful electric car - The Vision Marine E-Motion 180E engine is the fastest electric boating engine on the market. Nothing compares, and Vision Marine about to prove it.

The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout is the largest unsanctioned boat race in the US, named one of the nation’s eight “must-see�?? boating events according to Powerboat Magazine. People and boating manufacturers come from around the world to compete.

Vision Marine (  CEO Alex Mongeon is excited to be competing this year to show off his new tech -  "Electric boating technology is the future. Our goal is to start small, build a change of mindset that electric boating is everything gas engine boating can be." - Alex Mongeon

Mongeon is available for interviews about the world record attempt and what capturing it will mean for the industry.  Reach me at if you're interested.


The 180 E-Motion outboard is the company’s flagship engine and the “first fully electric purpose-built outboard powertrain system that combines an advanced battery pack, inverter, and high efficiency motor with proprietary union assembly between the transmission and the electric motor design utilizing extensive control software.

Electric boat motors have a longer lifespan, they are easier to operate and they are silent compared to their gas engine counterparts! The only thing slowing adoption of electric boats is the power output. That's about to change!

Venice, Amsterdam and local communities around the world are banning gas engine boats. 

Development of high-powered motors will further enhance usage of electric motors for all kinds of boats.

Gas boat engines are designed to deliver a large amount of power in a relatively small package. As a result, a certain amount of the fuel that enters into a motor is discharged unburned, and ends up in the water. Other concerns include lowered oxygen levels in the water due to carbon monoxide inputs, and spills or leaks associated with the transfer and storage of gasoline near water bodies.

 In 1995, Vision Marine Technologies (formerly known as the Canadian Electric Boat Company) took a green turn with the help of two brilliant naval architects. Vision Marine Technologies is proud to be a pioneer and the only high performance electric boat manufacturer in North America. With the technological advances of recent years, it is now possible for consumers to purchase reliable and efficient electric boats. Just like the technological advancements of the car industry, electric boat technology now meets high standards of autonomy while offering unprecedented performance. The propulsion of 100% electric watercrafts is a concept already explored for more than 120 years now!
