European electric boat manufacturer expands into US
Magonis, the Spanish manufacturer of electric boats, has opened a new office in Connecticut, on the US east coast.
The Barcelona-based firm says its ‘ambitious’ US team is dedicated to expanding the brand in the US market.
“We are thrilled with the early adoption of Magonis in the US and are excited about the opportunity in the States as we believe the EV (electric vehicle) revolution is just beginning,” says Chris Emme, president of Magonis US. “We are building a customer base of innovative, forward-thinking, early adopters who see the immense value in EV, love the water and are ecstatic about the Spanish craftsmanship of the Magonis Wave e-550”.
Last year, Magonis unveiled its full electric Wave e-550. With a 5.4m length (5m at waterline) and 2m width, it’s designed for comfortable day cruising. It is available with a range of Torqeedo electric engines up to 12 kW or with the powerful Mag Power 30.0 engine that can reach a speed of 22 knots.
“By establishing a brand and broad customer base early on”, adds Emme. “our strategy is to attract the best services, sales and power providers in the US as partners grow our business exponentially. We want to be a driving force behind bringing EV to the water”.
The address of the Magonis US office is: 5 Hillandale Road, Stamford, CT06902.
Earlier this year, Magonis expanded into Canada, forming a partnership with Oasis Global for exclusive distribution of the Wave e-550.
