Epic 232se Electric Boat

Man… it looks like just about everyone is jumping on the electric bandwagon. First it was cars, then motorcycles and now boats. I suppose it was inevitable that boaters would follow suit, however it seems like the cost of admission is unbelievably high. This is the EPIC 232se Electric Sport Boat, a boat that’s designed specifically for wake boarding. It’s sleek, fast and can hold a charge for up to 10 hours, however it also cost a whopping a $150,000 which is a lot of scratch for a 23-foot tow vehicle. Granted the EPIC 232se is filled to the gills with the latest and greatest in electric vehicle technology, but $150,000 just seems like and exorbitant amount of money to pay for a boat that does little more than tow you around a lake at speed.

    Ya know, that’s probably the best application of the electric movement yet. Like they said, they don’t need high horsepower, but that instant torque is great. Plus, the weight of the batteries is a good thing in a wakeboard boat, when put in the right place. The lower noise is always good for the lake as well.

    A+ in my book. Now if only it was affordable.

      now price isnt going to be an issue most technology is expensive in the begginning look at computers (my dad bought his first pc 1984-1985 and it cost the company he worked for and it had about the same price tag as a decent car) or look at mobile phones it wasnt that long ago that a phone cost more than 500 bucks now you can get a phone for less than 50 bucks
