FORT PIERCE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / June 12, 2023 / Forza X1, Inc. (Nasdaq:FRZA) ("Forza," the "Company"), a developer of electric sport boats aimed at promoting sustainable recreational boating, announced today that it received an initial purchase order indicating its intention to purchase 100 units of its upcoming 22-foot electric monohull boat from OneWater Marine, Inc. (Nasdaq:ONEW). As Forza gets into commercialization, the order could equate to approximately $12,000,000 in revenue for Forza.
OneWater is one of the largest recreational boat retailers in the United States. OneWater engages primarily in the retail sale, brokerage, and service of new and pre-owned boats, motors, trailers, and the sale of marine parts and accessories and offers slip and storage accommodations in certain locations. It currently operates a total of 100 retail locations, twelve distribution centers/warehouses, and multiple online marketplaces in 20 states, several of which are in the top twenty states for marine retail expenditures.
The 100-unit order, made up of fifty 22-foot center console and fifty 22-foot dual console boats, marks a significant milestone for Forza, representing the Company's first sale of its 22-foot electric boat. "We're excited to build upon the strategic partnership that we formed with OneWater last August," Forza X1, Inc.'s Executive Chairman and Chief of Product Development Joseph Visconti stated. "Our 22-foot electric boats will have the opportunity to reach customers throughout OneWater's thriving dealer network, especially in key geographic areas that may be prime markets for marine electrification. Our team is hopeful that the boats built to fulfill this order will help amplify our mission to promote sustainable recreational boating."
The Company's 22-foot electrified monohull was first announced in March 2023. Forza's engineers have put the boat through various open water tests, including one that saw it reach speeds of approximately 40 miles per hour (35 knots). Based on its findings, Forza anticipates the 22-footer will be usable for up to five hours with normal run times and usage. The delivery of the units, pursuant to the non-binding order, is subject to testing, ability to manufacture and, typical to the industry, OneWater Marine's right to cancel or amend the order.
