Picture this: you’re gliding over serene waters, the sun warming your skin, and the only sound you hear is the gentle lapping of water against your boat. What makes this scenario even better? You’re on an all-electric boat, the Elcat Solar Electric Boat by GoSun.
Eco-Friendly All the Way
The Elcat solar electric boat is not just any boat; it’s an eco-friendly marvel. It’s all-electric, which means you can kiss those fossil fuels goodbye. Instead, it relies on a 1.3 kW electric motor and a 1.3 kWh battery to power your journey. The result? A silent, smooth ride without the headache of emissions and fuel costs. With 200 watts of solar panels, you can harness the sun’s energy to extend your range.
The Elcat watercraft isn’t just a champion for sustainability; it’s also incredibly practical. At 15 feet long and 8 feet wide, it’s spacious enough to comfortably seat up to six adults or carry over 1,300 pounds. Yet, it’s remarkably lightweight, weighing in at just 264 lbs.
The Elcat solar electric boat comes with a battery monitor that provides accurate data on how long you can cruise. No more guessing when it’s time to head back to shore. Durability is paramount for any boat, and the Elcat doesn’t disappoint. It’s constructed with drop-stitched, double-walled, structurally laminated PVC, ensuring it can withstand the elements. Even better, it’s designed with six air chambers, each weighing less than 80 pounds, making it easy to manage.
This solar powered watercraft comes with two side panels, a roof-top section, a floor, thwarts, a motor, a battery, a solar panel with a charge controller, a swim ladder, two air pumps, and a motor transom.
When you consider its size, capabilities, and eco-friendliness, it stands out as a cost-effective choice for any water enthusiast. With a price range of $7,950 to $12,750, the Elcat offers an accessible entry into the world of eco-friendly boating.
