Unique Boat

Spin Craft Electric Boats, a small Ottawa (Canada) based company has built the first passenger boat in North America to use both an electric battery and a diesel engine. By using a combination of electric and diesel power, the 19 foot, eight-passenger boat overcomes the problem of limited battery running time. The boat is designed to operate on electrical power for six hours and then use an efficient marine diesel engine.

While there are electric-powered tour and work boats, they are not well accepted by potential users because of the limited battery running time (a maximum of six hours). As a result, 95 percent of all tour and work boats are powered by diesel fuel. Spincraft's Silent I is the most advanced electric boat available today. The built-in silent battery charger system allows for totally silent emission free operation for up to six hours. After that, the generator can be used to cruise indefinitely while using less than one litre of fuel per hour.
