We’ve seen electric vehicle competition heat up on land. Could we be seeing the beginning of another one on water?
Electric boats probably won’t be filling up U.S. waters anytime soon, but boat builders, sports stars and students are pushing the boats’ limits and driving this $3.3-billion-a-year business into the mainstream.
The most ostentatious signs of electric boats’ future are the speeds that two groups have achieved in recent weeks. In August, Canadian boatbuilder Vision Marine hit 116 mph, and in recent days, Princeton University’s electric speedboating team topped 117.5 mph.
