A very one of a kind and unique Electric Boat, Hull and Deck built from Glen-L drawings, this beautiful vessel is the twentieth boat I’ve built and by far the most elegant and innovative.
Truly I cannot express how innovative this boat is, I am stopped all the time by people both on land (when launching) and while on the water amazed at not only the construction and function but the completely silent operation when cruising. A true premium and bespoke, handmade creation, I spared no time or expense when crafting this true work of art. I used AAA Straight grain teak, 4 Mastervolt Marine Gel batteries in series to make 48 Volts (4000W output) for propulsion, Dual 12 V house batteries to run the 8 speaker premium audio system, lighting, VHF and so on, professionally paint sprayed in very eye catching base-coat/clear-coat Deep Red Dupont Marine, Pod mounted Torqueedo Cruise 4.0 R motor complete with GPS based flight computer and so very much more.
I have no idea what the range is because I’ve never run the batteries to less than 50%, truthfully, we have never used the boat long enough. We use the boat about 4 hours at displacement speeds, this works out to about 5knots, a very silent 5 knots I may add.
Avoiding the sometimes confusing diatribe about the metrics and intricacies of an electric boat it probably is best to call me with any seriously deep questions (954.655.4625); however I will try a written walkthrough for those not inclined to telephone or feel free to ask a question through Ebay:
I plug the boat in and the onboard smart chargers handle the charging and maintenance float charge of all total six marine MasterVolt Gell batteries, most often, I just plug it in the night before of the same day I want to go for a cruise but the smart chargers can just be left plugged in and they will maintain the system indefinitely.
Currently I’ve got the chargers set for a 4 hour charge cycle, this will keep the batteries healthy for 5 years+ but you can change this setting to 2 hours if you want. Just pop the boat into the water, flip on your music and cruise without vibration, exhaust smoke, fuel fumes, noise and without ever facing any “start-up” issues or any other problem you have with fuel powered boats.
How long will the batteries last? I actually don’t know the answer to this as all my 4-hour cruises leave me with plenty of remaining power and after 3-4 hours of boating I’m typically finished for the day. If I had to guess, at displacement speeds, you can get a full day of boating without issue. As mentioned already, I have used the Cruise 4.0R and yes, this is way too big for the boat, but remember, electric motors only use the energy you ask it to, so the power is there if you want it or need to tow a friends boat with motor trouble. I typically use 600watts to make 5 knots. There are 4000 watts of power available, so the motor is very happy to run forever.
