We haven't just built a better outboard, we've built a better experience.

We started this company in 2011 with a belief that boating could be made better and more environmentally sustainable. We truly want to lead a transformation of boating for the next generations to hit the water. A kind of revolutionary watercraft experience, designed and optimized for the way we live and boat now.

This novel, modern approach to motoring sets a new standard for quality and reliability, and our partnerships with hull manufacturers help ensure horsepower on our outboards is used and distributed efficiently to maximize performance. With a smooth ride and nearly noiseless energy transfer process, you can get peace and quiet on the water even when whipping around the lake. Plus, the added benefit of a zero emissions boating experience helps protect the waters for generations to come.

Whether you’re a lifelong boater or someone just getting (back) into boating, we’re excited to introduce you to a new era of boating.  We’re ready to make watercraft ownership more accessible and sustainable for you, and help more of you enjoy life on the water … now, and in the decades to come.
