Mercury Marine unveiled two new Avator electric outboards, high-voltage electric concept propulsion system at CES 2024  

Avator 75e Electric Outboard

Feb 8, 2024

Mercury Marine unveiled two new low-voltage electric outboards, the Avator 75e and 110e, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. New for 2024, the 75e and 110e complete Mercury’s 5-model lineup of low-voltage electric propulsion and bring Avator’s innovative features and intuitive use to a higher power level. Also at CES, Mercury offered a first look at the next step in its electrification journey with a high-voltage electric concept propulsion system.    
 
Mercury launched its first electric propulsion product, the award-winning Avator 7.5e, at CES last January. The 20e and 35e, released in August, are CES 2024 Innovation Award honorees.  
 
“We are thrilled to unveil the Avator 75e and 110e on a world stage at CES,” said John Buelow, Mercury Marine president. “As we deliver on our commitment to introduce five low-voltage electric outboards, we are also excited to provide a concept of a high-voltage electric propulsion system. This concept, along with our incredible internal combustion products which have redefined outboard performance, continue to position us as the innovation leader in the marine industry.” 
 
The Avator 75e and 110e will be used on a variety of applications, including aluminum and composite pontoons, aluminum fishing boats, skiffs, inflatables and smaller fiberglass runabouts. Like the 20e and 35e, the new models will also be used in commercial fleet applications and in ICE restricted waterways.  
 
The 75e produces 7.5kW (7500W) of propulsive power at the prop and the 110e produces 11kW (11000W) of propulsive power at the prop. At full power, the 75e and 110e provide roughly one hour of run time, and at 75% throttle, around 2-3 hours of general boating can be achieved. Run time can be extended by adding additional batteries or reducing throttle usage. 
Additional details including pricing will be released upon product launch in mid-2024.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
