On August 4, 2023 a freshly built catamaran from S2 Racing outfitted with two e-Motion 180E electric outboards from Vision Marine Technologies went into the water in Lake Mead Florida.
Twenty three days later, on the waters of Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, it hit a speed of 116 miles an hour, setting a new world speed record for electric boats. I was lucky enough to be there that day, to get a glimpse behind the scenes and talk with some of the people involved, including Vision Marine CEO Alex Mongeon, and the two men who make up the ’S’ in S2 Racing – Sean Conner and Shawn Torrente.
Getting an electric boat moving faster than any other in history was an incredible accomplishment for these three groundbreakers and their team of talented and dedicated men and women. And the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout was the perfect place for it to happen
