“World’s first” electric RIB to debut at The Green Tech Boat Show 2021

The Pulse 63 electric boat on the water

RS Electric Boats is to debut the Pulse 63 at The Green Tech Boat Show 2021 hosted by MDL Marinas.

According to manufacturer RS Electric Boats, the Pulse 63 is the world’s first electric RIB with a fully integrated electric drive. The craft is designed to help individuals switch to a more environmentally friendly way of getting out on the water. 

The company says the Pulse 63’s electric propulsion system is also extremely quiet with minimal wake, coupled with zero emissions, no fumes and no risk of oil spills. The electric RIB is built using sustainable and recycled materials and constructed on British soil to reduce shipping miles.   

“We are really looking forward to inviting interested parties to view the new Pulse 63 for the first time at The Green Tech Boat Show,” says RS Electric Boats commercial sales manager, Andy Andrews. “With zero emissions propulsion, the Pulse 63 provides a unique opportunity for marine-based companies to meet sustainability targets and move towards a greener future. We expect the RIB to appeal to a wide range of organisations, including law enforcement, border protection, security, wind farms, harbour masters, sailing schools and marinas, to name just a few.

“We also offer leisure and superyacht configurations for private boat owners wanting to reduce their carbon footprint and enjoy time on the water in a way that doesn’t harm the planet.”  

The RS Electric Boats Pulse 63 will be available to view at The Green Tech Boat Show, Queen Anne’s battery, Plymouth, 19-20 June 2021 on Stand 21. Tickets can be booked via the event’s website: www.mdlmarinas.co.uk/events/green-tech-boat-show.

    Not quite the first.
    Tornado Boats has a 6m electric coach/work boat in production.
    It was introduced in 2020 and can be seen at the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge.
