Learn more about owning a Voltari Electric Performance Boat
VOLTARI set out to make a better boat. Simply put, our value proposition combines high-grade materials, the most advanced technology, top-drawer service and a thrilling high-performance boating experience – that happens to be electric. VOLTARI is the world’s first electric performance boat, and our goal is nothing short of redefining the industry.
Our hulls are made of carbon fiber and are the latest generation of legendary world championship Deep V performance designs. Put the bow into the waves and watch it eat!!
Like any boat, ours requires basic maintenance to your boat components and outdrive. That said, EV power trains are virtually maintenance-free. No oil changes, no engine flushes, no fuel line checks. Simply charge it up and have fun.
In North America: our propulsion systems are manufactured in Seattle and engineered in Montreal QC, our batteries, powertrain systems and Hulls are manufactured in Quebec, and the finishing work takes place at Fort VOLTARI on the UNESCO-world-heritage Rideau Canal waterway in historic Merrickville, ON. Our USA HQ is at Pier Sixty-Six in Fort-Lauderdale, Florida.
It’s actually mind-blowingly silent for most boaters. The experience of hearing only the sound of wind, water and your friends talking to you casually at 30mph is very unique. You will now hear the minimal sounds made by your power steering and outdrive that you simply never heard over engine noise before.
This boat comes fully loaded as stock with amazing lighting and world-class stereo from Rockford Fosgate, ultra-luxurious marine-grade Alcantara hand-stitched interior, custom Sea Deck, and much more. There are some customer colour choices of exterior Gelcoat finish as well as for interior Alcantara textiles, stitching and sea deck. Trailer and dock charger are also optional add-ons.
SPECIFICATIONS AND PERFORMANCE
Much like any vehicle, whether it’s EV or fossil-fuel, it really depends on how you drive it, plus wind and current conditions are aways a factor.
This boat is designed for a full day’s use for most average boaters. In order to gain some perspective, you can achieve a range of up to 40Miles at cruising speed of 30mph, at a approx. cost less than USD$20 (based average US home electricity rates). This translates easily to a full day’s use for most boaters. As with any vehicle, range decreases when pushing higher speeds for longer periods, and increases considerably at idle and slower speeds. Distances of 100+miles are possible at idle speeds and going 60MPH will give you less range than cruise speeds. Keep in mind boating range is not as simple as looking at linear distance (as we do in automotive) as most boaters go from place to place, moving through slow-down zones, they stop to swim, anchor at a beach, raft up with other boats, or perhaps even hit a restaurant or friends dock for a few hours.
The journey is often the destination, and your Voltari is designed to get you a full day experience on the water with your family and friends.
The Voltari 260’s max speed is 60mph, and it loves to cruise between 25 and 35mph.
You can charge at your own dock by adding a marine pedestal with 50a or 100a service, or at a marina using their 50a or 100a pedestal in combination with a Voltari or off-the-shelf charger, or you can plug in to a fast charger. A 50a charge can run overnight at 13.5 hours, a 100a charge takes 8 hours, and a VOLTARI supercharger can complete a full charge in 45 minutes. Imagine never carrying another jerry can again or wasting valuable time lining up at your local marina waiting for fuel.
Keep in mind that we use an industry-standard J1772 connector, so you can also charge the Voltari 260 on your trailer at almost any automotive charging station.
You can purchase a charger or adapter to suit your needs from the VOLTARI Power section on our site. Or you can use any marine 50a or 100a service in combination with a VOLTARI charger or any off-the-shelf EV charger.
The Voltari 260 uses a standard automotive J1772 charging port and has adaptors available for compatibility with standard marine “shore power” pedestals and a number of automotive EV chargers.
We will be happy to provide guidance and specifications to you or your electrical contractor, to make sure you are all set for a day on the water.
Honestly, the same as if you run out of gas or diesel. With any boat, it’s a great idea to plan for these things with a tow membership if you are not watching your fuel/charge levels.
If you burn out your entire charge on the high-voltage battery, as with a fossil-fuel boat, your 12v battery will still be fully charged, running your USB ports to charge your mobile, and running your VHF to support a distress signal or a radio call.
There is a 10-year battery and hull warranty*. We have the best warranty and service plan in the industry. Contact us for more details.
