Lake Of The Ozarks Shootout 2022
In a much-anticipated run, Vision Marine Technologies’ electric-engine powered catamaran unofficially broke the world record for the fastest electric powerboat at the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout, Saturday morning.
The unique 32-foot catamaran was equipped with cutting-edge twin electric outboard engines, and made a stunningly fast — and quiet — run down a 3/4-mile race course as thousands of boaters watched. The boat was clocked at 104 mph, much faster than the current official world record for speed in an electric engine powered boat: 88.62 mph. That record was set by a Jaguar V20E boat, on a lake in Cumbria, England, in 2018. Saturday’s speed will not be certified as official in the Guinness World Records, however, due to race course and speed equipment requirements.
