Looking for a smart, small, lightweight, affordable charger for your small EV?
They're here! Soneil chargers for lead-acid batteries from 6 to 72 volts .

We don't sell electric boats. We continue to provide unbiased information about electric boats because we feel they are a superior solution for many water (surface) transportation applications, notably recreational boating. For more information about electric boats, check our our main electric boats page. (We sell Soneil battery chargers, some of which are ideal as chargers for electric boat batteries as they are small, lightweight, intelligent and affordable.) (Like any electrical device, they do need to be protected from submersion and the elements.)

Here are some electric boat links for you to check out:

[Link has bit-rotted: http://www.greenboatscientific.com/boats.php] The Weedoo (300) is a small electric pontoon boat designed to extract aquatic weeds and other pollutants from lakes and waterways.

Electra Marine does not appear to be in operation any longer, likely another victim of the 2008 recession. They produced the Electra 180, an elegant 48-volt fiberglass monohull that is 17'10" in length and 78" abeam, weighing in at 1800 pounds and the ElectraCat 185, a fibreglass catamaran hull weighing 2000 pounds, 8'6" abeam and 18'2" long. Both had a draft of just 20" and boasted a top speed of 15 km/h (about 9 mph). They were located at 3111, 3e Rue, Parc Industriel, Grand-Mère (Québec) G9T 5K5.

No longer produced, but an interesting craft, is the Aero-Marine Engineering Lec-Tric Ki-Yak, built in Fort Worth Texas. These were powered by modified trolling motors. One owner I have corresponded with is very enthusiastic about his Ki-Yaks.

Of course, if a trolling motor meets your needs, and some "trolling motors" can produce over 70 pounds of thrust, then have a look at what is available. Two of the better known brands are Minn Kota and MotorGuide. And here's a novel way to keep those trolling batteries charged.

Inevitably, get a few electric boats together and people want to race.
