Beau Lake Electric Boats
Building on the success of its retro-styled paddleboat, Beau Lake is now building two 14-foot, battery-powered lake runabouts. Named the Tahoe and Lugano, both boats offer two seats, a hand-carved mahogany tiller and joystick, marine-grade upholstered seats, a removable two-compartment cooler, and charcuterie board. They're powered by a Torqeedo Cruise 2.0 FP electric motor and 24-3500 Lithium smart battery, with a cruising speed of 3.5 knots and a top speed of 6 knots. The Tahoe has a more vintage-inspired design, with an inlaid mahogany veneer deck, while the Lugano has a fully molded fiberglass hull, and since both boats are self-draining, covers are optional, although recommended.
