Electric-powered boats made their debut at the Shootout in 2018, with a 25 mph run by Randy Vance in Calypso. Now, three years later, the Vision Marine Technologies-powered Bruce 22 hit 49 mph in its final run.

“One of the exhibitors generating serious buzz is Vision Marine Technologies, the company building the 180-hp E-Motion electric outboard. The Canadian corporation is “what IBEX is all about,” Dunbar says.
