The Picnic 20 is the newest in the Templar Marine electric boat line. As the little sister to the flagship Cruiser 26, the Picnic model is a smaller, lighter and cheaper option now available to the North American consumer market. The Picnic series comes in 4 distinct models, starting at just CDN $49,900, with additional A la carte options customers can customize to create their own unique electric boat. At 20-foot in length and 7-foot beam, the Picnic series will easily handle 10 passengers for all day emission free, silent cruising.
Eco-friendly, zero emissions, fully electric. The Templar Cruiser is simple to operate, easy to board, safe, low maintenance and features a spectacular amount of space including a full size bathroom, central heating and a full poly carbonate enclosure for year round use making it a unique concept in its class. Powered by Torqeedo propulsion systems running costs are approximately 10 cents an hour to operate.
The Templar Water Taxi is 26′ long and designed to carry 12 passengers comfortably and all round seating (9’6 beam). With almost no operating or maintenance costs and free of exhaust fumes and engine noise the T26 is suitable for many year round applications such as water taxi service, rental fleets, sight seeing tours, fishing charter, wine tours, and eco-tours among others. Tour guides will appreciate the ability to speak to their guests without worry of speaking over engine noise due to the fully electric motor. Guests will be grateful they are using an environmentally friendly service for their experience.
Eco friendly, no noise, simple to operate, easy boarding, zero emissions, no exhaust fumes, swim platform and ladder, fully encloseable cockpit, central heating for year round use, almost zero maintenance.
Optional – fully functional bathroom with 6′ headroom sink and vanity, refrigerator, BBQ, surround sound with Bluetooth, VHF, 1500 watt inverter, multiple USB ports, central heating for winter use and a full poly carbonate enclosure for year round use and a small generator to charge the batteries underway.
The Templar 26’ comes standard with 6 lithium ion batteries. This allows a useable range of approx. 6.5 hours underway @ 5 knots. (9 kmph or 5.7mph) covering a distance of approx. 36 miles. The performance of the boat will depend on the number of passengers being carried and the weather and sea swell conditions at the time. Adding additional batteries will increase the range of the vessel. A small generator can also be added to charge the batteries while underway which is ideal for boats that are used in remote areas of operation.
Electric? Absolutely. But we get it....it was the same when the first electric cars were announced. And look where we are now! The Templar is quiet, in fact, almost silent, and at approximately 10 cents per operating hour, with virtually no maintenance, no winterizing, no more trips to the fuel dock, and a comfortable speed of approximately 14 kph, it’s a no brainer.
At 26' (8m long), the boat can comfortably carry 15 people with a helmsman. For commercial use, the number is limited to 12 paying passengers, a helmsman and a crew member if required. (This limitation may change depending on the country the boat is being operated in, check with your local authorities).
