Essai en mer du Prototype

Dec 8, 2022

Known for manufacturing sophisticated and elegant bowriders and deck boats, Four Winns expands its offer with a new 100% electric, 22’ bowrider – the H2e. The H2e is the first, all-electric, series production bowrider on the market delivering ease of use, lower running costs and quiet operation even at full speed.

With a shared passion for innovation and technology and a strong belief in the future of electric motors, Four Winns naturally partnered with Vision Marine Technologies to develop the highly promising H2e. “Boaters are more aware than ever of their environmental footprints and are looking for sustainable solutions to reducing carbon emissions while still being able to enjoy the passions they love so much, and we are excited to share our vision and passion with the world,” states Alexandre Mongeon, CEO Vision Marine Technologies.

“Just imagine jumping aboard your H2e, fully charged and ready to go, from your trailer or private dock. No noise, no exhaust, no refueling, no hassle… just a rewarding day on the water,” states Nick Harvey, Four Winns Brand Director.

The world’s most powerful outboard electric powertrain, the 180E electric outboard engine powers the H2e, delivering rapid acceleration and precise handling, with a top speed of approximately 35 knots.

This system consists of two high voltage, high density, 700v battery packs, with a fully integrated powerful onboard charger that can be plugged into any dock shore power system, for quick recharging wherever you go cruising.

Additionally, the H2e features the first-ever smart digital display designed specifically for the marine industry. A dual touchscreen allows the boater direct connectivity to entertainment controls, phone connection, and an advanced navigation system. H2e boaters will also have access to an automatic logbook providing trip history, battery status, security, and weather forecasts.

The elegant lines, and unmatched silence of Vision Marine Technology’s electric motor, enhance the classic look of the iconic Four Winns bowrider.

However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
