Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show(R)

It's environmentally friendly and no gasoline needed. The Calypso 23e, powered by the Whisper XT electric outboard will make its debut at the world's largest boat show, the 2008 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show(R) from Thursday, October 30 - Monday, November 3.

EPower Marine, an independent boat dealer based in Boynton Beach, Florida, specializes in electric-propulsion products for the marine industry. The Calypso 23e can cruise up to 8.5 mph, is powered by 600 pounds of military grade Odyssey advanced AGM dry-cell batteries and can be charged overnight from a standard 115 volt outlet.

"For less than $2.00 worth of electricity anyone and everyone can enjoy -- and afford -- a relaxing day on the water," said Capt. Todd Sims, Vice President of EPower Marine. "In today's world, people are actively looking for ways to unwind keeping costs minimal. Our customers find electric boats their answer."

The Whisper XT electric outboard motor utilizes new electric marine motor technology developed for the U.S. Navy. It's a high-performance commercial electric outboard motor system that is roughly equivalent to a 15hp gasoline outboard motor.

The 49th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show -- covering six sites -- will feature more than $3 billion worth of boats, yachts, superyachts, electronics, engines and thousands of accessories from every major marine manufacturer and builder worldwide.
