À 186 mi/h, le VisionS2 devient le bateau électrique le plus rapide au monde

28 septembre, 2023

Par Jeff Butler

Je reviens tout juste du lac des Ozarks où, à la fin août, Vision Marine de Montréal a effectué deux courses et établi un nouveau record du monde de vitesse pour bateaux électriques. Dans une première course, leur bateau a atteint 111 mi/h, battant le précédent record de Vision de 106 mi/h. Lors de la seconde, un nouveau record à été établi à 116 mi/h !

Le Lake of the Ozarks Shootout est la plus grande course de bateaux non sanctionnée aux États-Unis et s’adresse à de nombreuses classes. Il va sans dire que le S2 de Vision a fait tourner de nombreuses têtes.

Dans une prochaine édition, nous examinerons la technologie et les personnes derrière cette réalisation sensationnelle.

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.
