ELECTRIC DRIVE OPTION
In the development of the IS525 a key aspect from the beginning was to be able to design the boat with the electric drive option.
The key to getting boats successfully to market with electric drive means that it needs to meet some very specific criteria: first and foremost that it is affordable, second is that it is safe and reliable and finally is that it is functionally practical.
To meet these goals Group Island Spirit partnered with major system developers in the EV industry for the development of the drive system. As we all know, fully electric vehicles are now available from every major automobile manufacturer and today there is over 400,000 EV buses in widespread use the globe.
Built and delivered by Group Island Spirit Manufacturing with over 20 years of building recreational sailing catamarans and commercial power catamarans. To find out more about the Island Spirit 525 please contact us!
