Arc Begins Sales for its Arc One Electric Boat

Arc Boat Company, the venture-backed startup that was formed in Los Angeles last year and designed the fully electric Arc One boat with a battery that has three times the capacity of a Tesla Model Y and a top speed of 35 knots, started selling boats yesterday.

Arc is led by a group of former SpaceX engineers who consider it their mission to lead the marine industry into an electric future, starting with watersport boats.

Arc designs and builds its boats in-house, including its battery packs, powertrain systems, thermal control systems, and software.

The 24-foot Arc One limited-edition luxury cruiser is built out of aluminum and sports a single electric motor that is equivalent to a 500-hp inboard engine. With a 220-kWh battery that weighs 3,000 pounds, Arc says the boat can go for 3 to 5 hours, depending on speed and load. It has a capacity for up to 12 people and is priced at $300,000.

It became available for preorder last year. On June 15 of this year, the company started actual sales and the first delivery is slated to happen later this summer.

More information can be found at the Arc website.
