MONTREAL — Four Winns, a division of Groupe Beneteau, partnered with Vision Marine Technologies to develop the H2e, the first all-electric series production bowrider on the market.

“Boaters are more aware than ever of their environmental footprints and are looking for sustainable solutions to reducing carbon emissions while still being able to enjoy the passions they love so much, and we are excited to share our vision and passion with the world,” said Alexandre Mongeon, CEO, Vision Marine Technologies.

Vision Marine Technologies’ electric outboard has undergone testing, both on and off the water. The 180E electric outboard engine powers the Four Winns H2, delivering acceleration and handling, with a top speed of approximately 35 knots (40mph).

The system consists of two high voltage, high density, 700v battery packs, complete with a fully integrated powerful onboard charger that can be plugged into any dock shore power system.


The H2e includes a smart digital display designed specifically for the marine industry. A dual touchscreen allows the boater direct connectivity to entertainment controls, phone connection, and navigation system. H2e boaters have access to an automatic logbook providing trip history, battery status, security, and weather forecasts.

Vision Marine technologies will showcase their electric motor at the Paris Boat Show, from December 3-10, before Four Winns shows the H2e model at the Miami International Boat Show, which will take place from February 15-20.

The Four Winns H2e is available for delivery for the 2023 summer season.
