FORT PIERCE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / April 25, 2023 / Forza X1, Inc. (Nasdaq:FRZA) ("Forza," the "Company"), a developer of electric sport boats aimed at promoting sustainable recreational boating, today announced that its 22-foot monohull reached speeds of 40 miles per hour (35 knots) during recent testing (Forza 22-Foot Monohull Video). "Our 22-foot center console monohull continues to perform beautifully in every capacity," remarks Joseph Visconti, Executive Chairman and Chief of Product Development for Forza X1, Inc. "We feel that we have designed, prototyped, and are currently testing the future of boating."
According to Visconti, the Company's most recent water test was one of the more rigorous examinations of the boat's capabilities. On the water from sunrise to sunset, Forza's 22-foot boat was taken to sand bars along the Treasure Coast, often loaded with eight or more adults onboard. "In addition to reaching speeds over 40 miles per hour, Forza's electric boat operated for over six hours throughout the day and returned to the dock with 25% remaining on its 104-kilowatt hour twin pack battery," says Visconti. "Additionally, our 150-horsepower outboard engine worked well, and there were no reports of any issues." Previous assessments also found that the 22-foot electric monohull was easy to use, got on plane quickly, and demonstrated significant single-engine performance.
Announced back in March 2023, Forza's 22-foot electrified monohull will be the first Forza product offered for consumer sale. "The market for similarly sized single-engine monohulls is one of the largest segments in the marine industry in terms of unit sales, which makes our 22-footer ideal for our debut offering," explains Visconti. Based on its findings thus far, Forza anticipates the 22-footer will be usable for up to five hours with normal run times and usage. Moreover, boats will be equipped with an onboard fast charger, which will allow owners to charge the batteries overnight so they can be back on the water the very next day.
The Company continues small batch production of its 22-footer during the testing phase before it commences consumer boat production. "We expect to begin building and distributing electric boats to end user consumers by the end of the year. Our team believes that the all-new 22-foot electric boats will excite the recreational marine market and appeal to the price-conscious consumer seeking value for their electric boat purchase," states Visconti.
