Solar Powered Electric Boat Announced

GoSun, a company specializing in solar-powered products for outdoor enthusiasts, has announced the launch of its Elcat Solar Electric Boat, one of the world’s most energy efficient boats.

The GoSun Elcat Solar Electric Boat provides customers with a solar-powered, eco-friendly boat. The Elcat boat glides across the water, thanks to its lightweight yet durable double wall construction on frictionless catamaran rails.

When it comes to contributing to climate change, gas-powered boats are one of the worst offenders. According to the Washington Post, gas-powered boats release about 1 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year. This has led many local governments to ban gas-powered boats on local water bodies.

In response, GoSun created the Elcat Solar Electric Boat so that individuals and families could still enjoy everything that the water has to offer without the associated guilt.

Compared to other boats on the electric market, the Elcat Solar Electric Boat is one of the more affordable and convenient options. “The Elcat is approximately 250 lbs and can be carried in a van, truck, or SUV,” said a spokesperson for the company. “Inflated, it becomes 15 feet long, 8 feet wide, and over 6 feet tall. Deflated, it can be folded and put inside of a trunk—that shows how versatile it is.”

The boat is powered by a 1.3kW electric motor and 1.3kWH lithium battery, which can be charged by any outlet or by solar. It comes with 200 watts of solar power that can be used to charge or extend the boat’s range. Additionally, the boat supports other solar appliances, such as fridges, water purifiers, cooking and more. On a full charge, the boat can run all day at easy trolling speeds. Due to the efficient electric motor, it runs almost silently with very little chop or turbulence. It fits six people and has seating both on the lower and upper decks.

“In the Elcat you see, hear, and feel so much more than blasting around in a motorboat,” said a satisfied customer. “It captures my speed and varying terrain perfectly. It also is a great two person tent. I’ve been taking it everywhere and using it as a camper, sleeping on the beach, and on the water. It truly has everything I need, and it’s not harming the environment either.”

Customers can purchase the Elcat Solar Electric Boat on the GoSun website. A deposit is required to secure a slot, and the estimated delivery is currently set for May 2023.
