I stumbled across this site and since I'd never heard of them I thought I would post he link for those interested. They even have an electric boat they claim can pull water skiers. Seeing these are Swiss boats, I bet the quality is impeccable. They have a price list, but it's in Euros and I didn't look up the exhchange rate but I bet they are not cheap. There is a South Carolina dealer.

THose are nice looking boats, it's Swiss Francs and at 1USD to 1.27CHS the CHS 174,900 makes it one expensive boat!

:eek: I just converted the entry model base price 75,760 euros = $91,277, which includes a couple of grand tax to "export" the Mercruiser engine out of Switzerland. I wonder how they would look with a Monster tower?

I wonder how long the battery would last, did not see that anywhere?


They look like the old woodies and never saw one of those with a tower, I can't even imagine!

Leroy- the standard accessories lists 1 12V battery, 78 Ah. That's ridiculous. And it goes a whopping 35 KPH (22MPH). For 179,000 CHS.

Did anyone see the one with the bow rudder. Says it maneuvers great in reverse. Interesting. There is a pic of it too,

Agree! You have to be really green to want this boat! I can't imagine much pull out of this, and the battery life has to be pretty small.

Makes a $70k MasterCraft look like a steal!

Glad to hear you on! Haven't seen much of you lately, busy?

Beautiful wood boats! I didn't know anybody was still making a wood boat let alone a direct dive inboard!
The electric model dosnt appear to have the power that would be needed.

I think I will keep my MC though.

Looks like it still has water cooling, but it is hooked up to the shaft packing.
