First All-Electric Luxury Fiberglass Pontoon
ELUX Marine Inc. will launch its new ELUX electric luxury fiberglass pontoon at the Minneapolis Boat Show, January 24-27, 2019, at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
The ELUX electric luxury pontoon – a 24’ fiberglass pontoon powered by a 72-volt, 420-amp lithium battery pack propelling a direct drive inboard electric motor at speeds up to 14mph. At cruising speed, the ELUX electric pontoon motors for over 10 hours on a single charge and recharges simply by plugging into a standard electrical outlet. Initial limited 2019 production of the ELUX pontoon will be available for sale and delivery in May.
The benefits of electric boating with the ELUX pontoon include:
•Trouble-free: ELUX’s electric drive makes operating and maintaining a boat easy. There’s no gas to fill, no oil to change, no ignition to fail and no engine to winterize.
•Emissions-free: ELUX’s lithium battery pack means there’s no exhaust to smell and no emissions in the air or water. Gone are the days of gas spills and oil slicks.
•Noise-free: Electric boating means quiet boating. Passengers on the ELUX can enjoy the sounds of nature, listening to music or quiet conversation without having to shout over a gasoline-powered engine.
Beyond the benefits of electric power, the luxury standard features of the ELUX include:
•Integrated passenger seating for 12, with flip-up storage & multiple USB chargers
•Slide-out cabinets for full-sized cooler, trash and recycling storage
•Unobstructed 2’ swim platform with under-mount telescoping ladder
•GPS with Simrad GO9 XSE 9” display and TotalScan transducer sonar
•Premium Infinity stereo by Harmon Kardan with 8 speakers, subwoofer and Bluetooth
•LED bow and stern lighting
•Handheld electric portable vacuum
•Removable custom shade sail for protection from the sun and rain
•Removable transom gate and full-sized table
•Pull-up cleats and quick release customized flat boat fenders
