Limestone Electric Outboard PartnershipThe Collingwood, ON–based Limestone Boat Company plans initially to offer Vision outboards to its current conventional outboard powered 25’ to 29’ Limestone models, and Aquasport Center Console models, with single or twin-180 HP electric outboard options. Based on sea trials to date, regarding Vision’s, proprietary E-Motion electric outboard innovations and integrated systems, Limestone is excited about bringing an EV alternative to big water performance boats that delivers the operating times, average cruising speed, and cycle times that our coastal and inland customers demand.

“With electric vehicle (EV) technology coming more and more to the forefront in our lives, we wanted to provide our customers with reliable and dependable yet disruptive EV marine product offerings on our deep-V hull designs,” said Limestone’s CEO Scott Hanson. “Our partnership with Vision provides us the opportunity to bring groundbreaking performance, run times, and cruising speeds to market sought after by big water boaters. “Our new electric propulsion offerings will in no way replace our current outboard offerings, but rather complement them by giving our customers an alternative choice based on their particular needs and usage,” adds Hanson.

Vision Electric MotorThe E-Motion outboard

Quebec based, Vision Marine, went public in November 2020 with the world’s first fully electric outboard motor, amalgamating an advanced battery pack, inverter, and high-efficiency motor. It is hailed as a pioneer with a sleek and classic aesthetic that’s easy on the eye.
