Electric dive boats for eco-friendly marine tourism

The MahaRaja Eco Dive Lodge in Raja Ampat, Indonesia is providing emission-free dive boats, powered by Torqeedo electric outboards, to its clients. The region is popular with scuba divers and snorkelers thanks to its rich marine life, which includes more than 1300 species of fish and 75% of all the hard-coral species on the planet. The lodge has transformed two traditional Papuan fossil fuel-powered long boats into electric dive boats. The first boat, “Puck Tiga”, is a 22 m long boat equipped with a Torqeedo Cruise 4.0 engine and lithium-ion batteries. The boat has a range of up to 20 km with one charge, which is more than enough to transport 12 divers to and from the dive sites. The second boat, “Puck Ampat”, is an 8 m long boat equipped with a Torqeedo Travel 1003 and is used for up to six passengers on trips of 10 km or less.
