Aquasport Completes Testing of Its 2100 CC Electric Prototype

The Limestone Boat Company, owner and builder of Aquasport Boats, announced the successful completion of sea trials for its electric outboard powered Aquasport 2100CC.

“The sea trial results met our expectations, confirming that we can be the first to offer a fully electric-powered 21-foot Center Console boat that is expected to deliver an average cruising speed of 23 mph, over two hours of run time, and can be recharged at dockside in four to eight hours,” said Scott Hanson, CEO of the Limestone Boat Company. “And for those looking to enjoy a sunset cruise or take in the wildlife in the quiet of EV outboard technology, six to eight hours on the water would not be out of the question at idle speeds.”

The Limestone Boat Company announced its EV partnership with Vision Marine in May. Limestone put the fully electric Aquasport 2100CC on the water for sea trials in May 2022. Equipped with the 180-horsepower E-Motion electric outboard powertrain system coupled with two high-voltage 35kWh battery packs, onboard charging system and digital screens, the Aquasport 2100CC prototype met the company’s performance demands while keeping the Aquasport’s handling features intact.

Limestone is placing an initial order for 25 Vision Marine E-Motion engines, rigging components and integrated battery systems. “The new EV option will provide a great alternative for boaters looking for the features that electric power offers,” Hanson said.

The company will review the trial data to further optimize performance capabilities, through battery placement refinements, variable engine placement, and lighter, stronger laminate schedules for an all-new EV-specific version of the model. The boat will be built at its Tennessee boat production facility. Aquasport and Vision Marine will also test the EV potential for additional models, like the Aquasport 2100 Deck Boat.

Limestone plans to deliver Aquasport 2100 CC EVs to dealers early in the second quarter of 2023.
