Elouise – 17 1/2ft Electric River Launch

SKU: ELOUISE Category:


About Elouise

Elouise is a 17’6″ electric open river launch designed for the UK’s rivers, canals and lakes but with capabilities that extend much further. She is primarily set up to accommodate electric power but can also accommodate Diesel. An all open cockpit offers spacious seating for up to 6 people via a range of available seating options.
Electric (as shown) comes in the form of a 7.5kW pod drive that will offer fantastic manoeuvrability as well as silent cruising. She has a cruising speed of 5 knots and at that, will have a range of 8 hours with a recharge time of 3-4 hours. Alternatively she can be Diesel powered in the form of a 16hp Beta marine twin cylinder inboard engine on a shaft drive.
This boat will be available to purchase as a kit or a finished boat and is expected to be available early 2022.
