Vision Marine Technologies has launched a partnership with a large franchisee of Freedom Boat Club (FBC), a subsidiary of Brunswick Corporation, and will supply five third-party pontoon boats equipped with its E-Motion 180E fully electric outboard motor and powertrain system. The franchisee of FBC, located in Deerfield, Florida, will enter into a six-month evaluation programme with Vision Marine.

According to FBC, the Deerfield Beach location represents the fifth fastest-growing franchisee location in its North America network. The pontoon boats will be available for use by all FBC members for six months.

Freedom Boat Club South Florida, the owner of the Deerfield Beach FBC location, owns and operates ten locations throughout Southeast Florida, with approximately 1,800 members. After the evaluation period, Vision Marine and Freedom Boat Club South Florida will explore expanding the electric footprint across all ten of its FBC location properties.

“We are excited to be introducing cutting edge, extended range electric powertrain systems to our Freedom Boat Club fleet in South Florida,” says Dan Lund, CEO of Freedom Boat Club, South Florida. “Our partnership with Alex Mongeon and his Vision Marine team allows our members to experience firsthand the next wave of innovation in marine propulsion.”

“This opportunity to introduce our fully electric outboard and powertrain, the E-Motion 180E, in front of the members at the Freedom Boat Club in South Florida, provides exposure to an audience that are avid boaters, and will experience the benefits of electric on the water,” says Alexandre Mongeon, co-founder and CEO of Vision Marine.
