RS Electric Boats’ New Electric Pulse58 Built with Sustainable Composite Materials

July 06 2020

RS Electric Boats’ new electric Pulse58 rigid inflatable motorboat is designed and built with sustainable composite components.

RS Sailing’s sister company, RS Electric Boats, has a focus on sustainability and zero emissions. The company’s new Pulse58 electric rigid inflatable boat (RIB) is designed and built with sustainable composite components provided by NORCO, helping the company attain both of these goals.

Built with the highest level of sustainable construction in the RIB sector, the Pulse58’s hull design provides low-speed drag and a stable and maneuverable platform. The sustainable composite materials used in the construction of the boat are created from bio-based infused epoxy resin, recycled PET core material, and basalt and flax fiber. The material is strong, energy-absorbing, lightweight, and tough in even the most extreme environmental conditions.

Running on a 57Kwh battery bank stored in an underfloor structural case delivering up to 104v to the propulsion unit, the Pulse58 has a range of at least 35 nautical miles at its maximum speed of approximately 20 knots, a full day for standard RIB use.
