Running on a 57Kwh battery bank stored in an underfloor structural case delivering up to 104v to the propulsion unit, the Pulse58 has a range of at least 35 nautical miles at its maximum speed of approximately 20 knots, a full day for standard RIB use.
Similar to the advance of electric cars in the automotive industry, the marine industry is beginning to search for alternative energy sources for cleaner engine emissions. John Smith, project engineer at RS Electric Boats, explained, “The Pulse58 is revolutionary due to its huge depth of technology and innovation, it defines a new genre of motorboats. Similar to electric cars, full electric drive requires a change of mindset and habits of use that match its capability. These small changes are key to protecting the future of our planet and continued enjoyment of boating in a sustainable way.”
In addition to the innovative design and construction of the Pulse58 in order to control emissions and use sustainable building materials, RS Electric Boats has partnered with Tree Aid to offset the carbon footprint and to ensure the entire build cycle process is carbon neutral.
