"KILO" runs at Lake of the Ozarks Shootout will be the venue for the record run.
Vision Marine Technologies has announced its intention to set an absolute world speed record for an electric-powered boat at a UIM-sanctioned kilo run on August 27 during the annual Lake of the Ozarks Shootout in Sunrise Beach, Mo. The attempt over a one-kilometer course will be conducted by the American Powerboat Association (APBA), the U.S. governing body for power boat racing as authorized by the UIM (Union Internationale Motonautique), the world governing body for all power boating activities.
Vision Marine Technologies raised a few eyebrows when a pair of modified Vision Marine E-Motion outboards powered a 32-foot Hellkats Powerboats catamaran piloted by pro racer Shaun Torrente to a speed of 109 mph during the 2022 Lake of the Ozarks Shootout, a popular unsanctioned speed-run event. It was apparently the first time a boat powered by electric motors exceeded 100 mph, and the run topped the official UIM record for an electric-powered boat by more than 10 mph. At the 2023 Shootout, Vision Marine will sponsor the electric boat categories, for the first time split into mono- and multi-hull divisions.
