These electric launches are equipped with a four horsepower electric motor, here using only a fraction of that power.  This hull is easily pushed through the water and thus is extremely economical in its use  of battery life.  It is ideal as a day, and weekend pleasure boat.  Batteries are simply recharged with an on-board automatic system that needs only to be plugged in to the dock .
