Scout Boats Launches Hybrid Model at New York Show
A Summerville boat manufacturer is making waves at the New York National Boat Show this week, launching one of the first vessels to run on gasoline and electricity.
The 14 1/2-foot Hybrid model by Scout Boats Inc. comes equipped with a traditional 20-horsepower outboard motor, plus two 36-volt electric motors made by Lenco Marine of Florida.
The vessel's quiet battery-powered units can run up to 8 miles an hour for eight hours between charges, though the boat can travel about three times faster when the gas- powered engine is cranking.
