In a first for the Irish marine industry, MarineServices.ie is proud to present the first all-electric powered rigid inflatable boat (RIB). Arriving in early February, RS Electric Boats’ Pulse 63 is a 6.3-metre-long RIB designed from the ground up to be 100% electric.

After a design, development, and testing period of over three years, this craft is now entering mass production. It's set to be a real game-changer in the marine industry. MarineServices aims to revolutionise both the commercial and leisure RIB markets with this groundbreaking boat.

The Pulse 63 is no longer a prototype; it delivers real-world performance and range with its high-performance electric setup. Expect a range of up to 100 nautical miles and top speeds of over 20 knots. Similar to electric cars, the power is instantaneous, providing swift acceleration and unrivalled manoeuvrability.

Constructed with shock-absorbing materials and designed for excellent stability, the Pulse 63 ensures a smooth ride. Its unique hull form creates an air cushion effect, resulting in a drier cockpit even when the seas get rough. Without the need for engine mounts, the cockpit is very spacious for its size, and the engine is virtually silent.

Sustainability is key in the construction of the Pulse 63. RS Electric Boats have undertaken extensive research into the applications of alternative materials, and, building upon their successes in RS Sailing’s production, have developed an optimised laminate for the Pulse 63, which includes a PET core made from recycled post-consumer plastics. This innovative material is lightweight, durable, and incredibly strong.

Designed as an electric RIB from the outset, the Pulse 63 features some of the most advanced electric propulsion technology. The Electric Drive offers instant acceleration, featherlight control, and hydrodynamic performance. It also means less noise, reduced vibration, lighter weight, and lower maintenance.

This unique boat will be in Ireland from the 9th-12th of February. The RS Electric Boats and MarineServices.ie team would be delighted to demonstrate this masterpiece to both commercial and private users.
