Vision Marine TechnologiesWe learned from Alexandre Mongeon, president of Vision Marine Technologies that their Bruce 22 and E-Motion 180 motor had performed well at the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout on August 29th.

At the Shootout, new records were made including top-performer American Ethanol who took Top Gun with a 193 MPH Run. The results were reported by Nathan Bechtold of Lake Expo. Capping the event, American Ethanol climbed the ladder at the 33rd Annual Shootout, clinching the Top Gun trophy for the seventh year in a row.

Vision Marine TechnologiesA total of 95 boats ran at the 33rd annual Shootout this year, a new record for the event. There were 253 total runs, compared with only 189 in 2020 (last year’s event ran into bad weather). Brad Rowland set a new record for pontoons on the 3/4-mile course, with a blistering 113 mph run.

The Slowest Boat Is Getting Pretty Fast

Bechtold of LakeExpo reported that electric-powered boats made their debut at the Shootout in 2018, with a 25 mph run by Randy Vance in Calypso. Now, three years later, the Vision Marine Technologies-powered Bruce 22 hit 49 mph in its final run. Vision Marine CTO Xavier Montagne was at the docks, and told LakeExpo the boat was a glimpse into the very-near future. Electric boats are coming to the consumer market soon, he said, and the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout was an exciting opportunity for Vision to debut their E-Motion™ outboard motor.
