Montreal-based Vision Marine Technologies, Inc. is headed to the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout to showcase the unveiling of its new Bruce22 electric boat coupled with the E-Motion™ outboard motor.

Focusing on power, speed and performance, Vision Marine is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the surging demand for environmentally friendly boats and engines. The move toward unprecedented power and torque such as that generated by our purpose-built powertrains, and the expanded availability of pure electric options, including our increased offerings, is projected to increase the current market value of US$4.5 billion for electric outboard motors by four fold in the coming years.

Key Features of Vision Marine’s proprietary E-Motion technology:

• Dramatic increase in efficiency, torque, power, and general performance.

• Exceptionally fast charging capabilities

• Noiseless engine with minimal vibrations.

• Sustainable solution with zero emission.

• E-Motion delivers an exhilarating experience due to its high torque to horsepower ratio.

• 90% reduction in fuel and maintenance cost versus traditional ICE powered boats.

“The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout provides a great platform to showcase our groundbreaking electric technology to the boating community,” said Xavier Montagne, Chief Technology Officer of Vision Marine Technologies. “Speed and power are major driving factors for boaters, and in the recent past required using gas or diesel to run outboard motors. With our proprietary E-Motion technology, we provide the boating consumer an environmentally friendly solution that combines the necessary power and speed with off-the-line torque that we believe is far superior to any gas or diesel motor.”

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
