The eCraft 20 sets a new standard in state-of-the-art technology and environmentally responsible boating. The clean, quiet, electric eCraft 20 marries the aesthetics of classic design with innovative standards of safety, sustainability, and comfort on the water. An efficient underwater hull shape combined with the latest in electric propulsion and control technology enables the boat to cruise up to 30nm on a single charge.
The 20′ eCraft comfortably seats eight adults, cruises at up to 8 Knots and can carry battery capacity to last all day. The sophisticated motor controller gives clear indication of remaining battery capacity as well as the remaining battery time at current motor speed. If the battery capacity approaches the low end, the motor speed is automatically reduced to increase efficiency and range. An optional second bank can function as a ‘reserve’ supply
Designed to be easy and fun to handle by novices and experienced boaters alike,
the eCraft 20 steering and speed is controlled by a simple joystick. Options include a GPS chartplotter/fishfinder, refrigerator, barbecue grill, and interior courtesy lights. With the built-in battery charger, re-charging is as simple as plugging the extension cable into a marina shore power outlet or, if trailering, into any 115 volt, 15 amp household receptacle.
Borrowing a style from many modern performance sailboats, the eCraft 20 has an open transom design. Unique for a powerboat, this allows a swim platform that can also be used for easy boarding from a dock, and creates a great space to cast a fishing line. Forward of the platform, a step keeps the rest of the interior dry and secure. The two seats mounted over this step can swivel 360 degrees to provide an aft facing view. Three bench style seats (with ample locker stowage) and full backrests fill out the rest of the boat and are arranged around a removable table.
The eCraft 20 is positioned to become the ideal craft for in-shore and lake pleasure-boating, riding the wave of interest in electric power that is currently being witnessed in the automotive market.
