Vision Marine Technologies Partners with Nautical Ventures Group to offer Groundbreaking 100% Recyclable Boat for the U.S. Boating Market

Introducing The First Fully Electric Rotomolded Boat, The Phantom

Montreal, Canada, October 17, 2022 – Vision Marine Technologies (NASDAQ: VMAR) ("Vision Marine" or the "Company"), leader and innovator in the electric recreational boating industry, has formed a partnership with Nautical Ventures Group as its sole and exclusive distributor of a fully recyclable rotomolded plastic boat (the “Phantom”) for the state of Florida, and a non-exclusive distributor dealership agreement for the United States. This agreement includes Nautical Ventures' agreement to purchase a minimum of 50 Phantoms in the first year with a retail value of $1.5 million.

Vision Marine's quest to innovate and decrease emissions by using recyclable materials has brought to market a new disruptive product: a fully recyclable plastic boat called The Phantom.


Vision Marine's designers and manufacturing team make use of recyclable polyethylene plastics in its roto molding process in order to produce a lightweight, unsinkable, and indestructible hull that can comfortably accommodate a crew of 10 and can handle any outboard motor of 50 H.P. or less.
The Phantom is USCG, CCG, and C.E. certified.
  • An extensive array of colors and styles
    The Phantom’s plastic alloy provides various colors and new phosphorus-glowing materials.
  • Unsinkable
    The Phantom’s durable plastic composition is made to last and requires minimal maintenance. Its buoyancy is achieved by way of positive floatation Styrofoam insertions through the hull.
  • Durable and Lightweight
    The lightweight hull is purposefully adapted for electric propulsion and easy hauling. The Phantom is 30% lighter than its fiberglass counterpart.
  • Self-Bailing
    The Phantom is a self-bailing boat which allows water to be expelled automatically.
