RS Electric Boats, the brand-new sister company to RS Sailing, this week launches the Pulse58 – its exciting new innovative electric RIB. Unveiled at Boot Dusseldorf, the Pulse58 is the product of 2 years of development and is ground-breaking as the first ever production RIB with a fully integral electric drive.
The marine industry trails behind car manufacturers in terms of engine emissions and a defined future for alternative energy. Evolving environmental attitudes and imminent changes to law around the world are driving demand for a different approach to boating that removes the negative impact of a fossil fuel burning motor.
With 25 years of design and build experience in zero emissions boating, RS’ Pulse58 will blend proven automotive electronic technology and an extremely efficient electric drive optimised hull form, with the highest level of sustainable construction of any boat in its sector.
Following a successful debut at Boot Düsseldorf, RS Sailing’s sister company RS Electric Boats are proud to announce the Pulse58 will be on display at the 2020 RYA Dinghy Show.
Culminating 2 years of development, the Pulse58 is a brand new 5.8m, entirely bespoke design RIB with a ground-breaking, full integral electric drive.
Constructed with sustainability as its primary focus alongside zero emissions, Pulse58 is destined to challenge habits, spark passion amongst its users and redefine the standard.
At the show, RS’s Pulse58 can be found in the Panorama Hall just after you enter through Palm Court. You can see the boat in the flesh with CEO Alex Newton-Southon and his technical team on hand to answer any questions. Find out what makes the Pulse58 so special
