 We love to see all the awesome new purpose-built electric boats coming onto the market.
So, we at Eclass Outboards, Australian-Made Electric Outboards, look forward to the Gussies. Excellence in Electric Boat Design. The awards are named after Gustave Trouvé, the French inventor who devised a detachable electric motor propelling his prototype boat ‘Le Téléphone‘ along the Seine in 1874. It was the birth of the outboard motor. Although ICE outboards took over electric after 1910. Electric outboards are back! More than 100 boats from 21 countries and every continent except Antarctica entered ‘The Gussies’ this year.
