With this post, we proudly launch our Go Boating Pros Series. In it, we will regularly post articles about area boating resources, services, unique products and a host of other topics in order to further enhance your SW Florida boating experiences.
This installment features alternative propulsion craft. Many people might not even be aware that there are options outside internal combustion power. One example we found was the new Island Packet L24e, an electric propulsion launch with solar-assist. A low maintenance boating alternative loaded with comfort and conveniences, this attractive, alternative craft can let you cruise for less than $2/day!
Its freshwater sink, transom shower, drawer-style refrigerator and pop-up electric-ﬂush marine head gives you all there conveniences you could want—all in the quiet ambiance and zero emission operation electric propulsion provides. It even has a remote control hardtop canopy lowers to become a cockpit cover keeping everything safe and sound.
