Just back from Lake of the Ozarks where two weekends ago Montreal’s Vision Marine complete two runs and set a new world speed record for electric boats. The first run achieved 111mph breaking Vision’s previous record of 106. The second set a new record of 116!
The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout is the largest unsanctioned boat race in the US and caters to many classes. Vision’s S2 turned a lot of heads and achieved amazing speed.
Next issue, we will take a look at the technology and people behind this sensational accomplishment
