This looks like a good Gunkholing boat and it has electric outboards

They say about 80 miles on a charge. Thats pretty good in my book.
Im never going that far between stops while exploring the Gunkholes along
a coast. Looks like it would be good for the skinny water areas.
Recharge with wind Gen or solar or both. Or looks like you can run a small
gen like a 2500watt Honda to run the electric outboards aswell if you want to go farther then 80 miles at one time. Im going to keep an eye on
this company over this next year.
Its called the BluePlanet 32E

@ $160k I'd want a lot better than that

I could almost buy a live-aboard Trawler in the US with enough fuel to travel the globe for the same sort of money

+ the cost of the generator and it's fuel.

Not having a salon is a real issue, too. Very cool boat, though, and made in NC.
