After testing 100 different boats in 2021, Boating Magazine has selected Ingenity’s Super Air Nautique GS22E as winner of the most prestigious award in recreational boating, Boat of The Year. Voted by the editorial staff, this coveted award celebrates the most innovative and impressive boat model in all types, sizes and categories tested.
“The GS22E shows what is possible in a 100% electric dedicated watersports boat and includes some impressive firsts from its unique 124 kWh battery to a telematics platform that optimizes the end-user experience,” said Ingenity President Sean Marrero. “It is a real honor to add another first to this list…the first all-electric boat named Boat of the Year.”
In addition to the latest in sustainable drive technology, Nautique’s GS22 hull delivers an on-water experience without compromise. Whether a boating family likes to waterski, wakesurf or wakeboard, the GS22E delivers the ultimate in versatility.
“We could not do this without Nautique,” Marrero added. “The GS22 platform lets us optimize both performance and economics around Ingenity’s electric propulsion system without forgetting its day job: providing the best watersports experience you can buy.”
“The entire team at Nautique is extremely proud to bring home this sought-after award and for the GS22E to be named the Boat of the Year,” said Nautique President Greg Meloon. “We’re very grateful for the recognition from Boating Magazine.”
2021 caps off a year where industry recognition of sustainable solutions is at an all-time high with equivalent car and truck awards both going to all-electric products for the first time.
“The Ingenity team has worked tirelessly to make sustainability fun, and we are now at a point where a growing number of consumers want choices that better align with their values,” Marrero added. “Congratulations to the Ingenity and Nautique teams for making it possible, and thanks to Boating Magazine for recognizing GS22E with the most prestigious award in the industry…Boat of the Year!”
