The Limestone Boat Company partners with Vision Marine Technologies
The Limestone Boat Company has announced a partnership with Vision Marine Technologies to produce its proprietary E-Motion electric propulsion powertrain option for select Limestone and Aquasport brand models.
“With electric vehicle (EV) technology coming more and more to the forefront in our lives, we wanted to provide our customers with reliable and dependable yet disruptive EV marine product offerings on our deep-V hull designs,” says Limestone’s CEO Scott Hanson. “Our partnership with Vision Marine Technologies provides us the opportunity to bring ground-breaking performance, run times, and cruising speeds to market, sought after by big water boaters.
“Our initial plan is to offer our current conventional outboard powered 25’ to 29’ Limestone models, and Aquasport Center Console models, with single or twin-180 HP electric outboard options. Our new electric propulsion offerings will in no way replace our current outboard offerings, but rather complement them by giving our customers an alternative choice based on their particular needs and usage.”
Vision Marine Technologies CEO and co-founder, Alexandre Mongeon, comments: “Our partnership is truly a joint venture, with both companies greatly benefitting. The Limestone Boat Company will provide the necessary models, product engineers, and testing environments so we can collectively work in tandem to produce the excellent results which our electric powertrain system can deliver, with the goal of having a model on display for consumers to experience for themselves at one of the premier fall boat shows later this year, as well as on view at select Limestone and Aquasport dealers.”
