World-famous for the care of its products, a hallmark for the past 50 years, the American Four Winns is now entering the electric boat market, introducing a new boat, the Four Winns H2e, a bowrider 100% electric capable of over 35 knots. A small 6.7 meters capable of flying over water thanks to the equivalent of approx. 230 horsepower. A feature that underscores how the original DNA has not been abandoned and, instead, demonstrates the company’s ability to keep up with the times without necessarily having to lose itself in doing so.

100 percent electric, the new H2e bowrider is just 6.7 meters long overall, proving to be, on the surface, an electric version of the previous, internal-combustion H2. Yet, theory has it, H2e is actually much more. Just think of the experience conferred by electric power, especially contextualized to a bowrider-small, lightweight boat designed to be fast-now capable of accessing full power in a matter of seconds, in total silence.

Details

The new Four Winns H2e is a boat that seeks several things, seeks performance, seeks its pace with the times, and seeks not to lose itself in the attempt. And on paper it succeeds.

Small, agile, fast, certainly does not lose the typical charm of the segment, while continuing to offer everything necessary for well-being and comfort. A full-beam sundeck in fact occupies the spaces just behind the cockpit, which in turn offers comfortable, furnished with sofas and seating. But the bow is also no less than that; in fact, it is perhaps the focus of relaxation. Hollowed out in place of the deckhouse, protected by the bulwarks, it offers sheltered sofas, creating an ideal lounge even when sailing at high speeds.

But the heart of the Four Winns H2e is to be found in the hull-electric propulsion combination. Designed to have extremely high-performance and maneuverable lines that are also safe in terms of ‘grip,’ the H2e is in fact powered by one of the most powerful outboard powertrains on the market, the 180 E. Powered by two high-voltage battery packs (700 V density), the 180 E is in fact capable of pushing the hull with the equivalent of 230 horsepower (no small figure on a 6.7-meter), resulting in 35-knot speed glides achieved in handfuls of seconds.
