Miami 2013: Ecoboats Silennis S020

Ecoboats is taking it a step further. This Fort Lauderdale-based company is launching its first boat in Miami this year: the Silennis S020. Entirely electric, the Silennis makes no wake, no noise and requires no gas. Ever.

Going “eco friendly” is increasingly important as we become aware of the impact our mere presence has on the environment on a global scale. In response, many companies are looking into hybrid technologies and solar power. Ecoboats is taking it a step further. This Fort Lauderdale-based company is launching its first boat in Miami this year: the Silennis S020. Entirely electric, the Silennis makes no wake, no noise and requires no gas. Ever. While you won’t be jetting anywhere in a hurry—the engine’s top speed is about 7 knots—the boat could easily serve as a tender or a dayboat to putt-putt around the marina or for a comfortable cruise through the Intracoastal. Available options include teak or non-skid decks, bimini top and detachable transom.
