MONTREAL — Vision Marine Technologies, received an initial purchase order from Groupe Beneteau of 25 E-Motion 180E outboard and powertrain systems. At the beginning of each month, Beneteau will provide Vision Marine a quarterly rolling forecast, which will include additional quantities through a purchase order for the outboard and powertrain systems.

The commitment from Beneteau commenced by entering into a formal supplier agreement with Vision Marine, which was announced on December 13. With this initial purchase order, Beneteau will provide an eco-responsible alternative propulsion solution.

Vision Marine and Beneteau will jointly market the Four Winns H2e to Beneteau’s dealer network, which includes 72 dealers in the United States, and 400 worldwide, on five continents.

The H2e is a fully electric runabout available to the market. Four Winns will showcase the H2e and associated technology at the Paris Boat Show, December 3-10, ahead of the formal introduction at the Miami International Boat Show, to be held February 16-20, 2023.


The system consists of two custom high voltage, high density 700v battery packs, complete with a fully integrated and powerful onboard charger that can be plugged into any dock shore power system for recharging. With an advanced 70kw battery pack, the H2e has the power and autonomy to cruise all day.

“This initial order sets an important commercial milestone and reflects not only the value, but also the trust Beneteau places in our innovative technology, as we expand fully electric propulsion systems globally across Beneteau’s formidable portfolio of brands,” said Alex Mongeon, co-founder and CEO, Vision Marine.

This initial order cements Beneteau’s position as an innovative pioneer, with a clear focus on sustainable and decarbonized boating, as well as a greatly enhanced customer experience. The partnership in place with Vison Marine will enable Beneteau to offer eco-responsible alternative propulsion solutions adapted for its models by 2030.
