At Ray Electric Outboards we focus on what is important.

pic_motors_1.jpgReliability. Our first motor was sold in 1974. Since that time and thousands of motors later, over 99 percent of our motors are still in service. Personally, we think that speaks volumes about reliability.

Powerful. The Ray Electric Outboard is well suited for powering the family pontoon boat around the lake all day. However, the same Ray Electric Outboard is more than capable of powering large loads. Numerous commercial tour boat companies throughout the world depend on the reliability and quiet power of the Ray Electric Outboard to keep their customers moving.

Versatility. Unlike many imitations, the Ray Electric Outboard is designed first and foremost as an outboard whose function is to be the primary source of power. This permits our customers to adapt the Ray Electric Outboard to their lifestyle and needs.

The Ray Electric Outboard is built in the USA. It features a single lever control, a patented dual air cooled electric motor that delivers up to 250 pounds of static thrust (System 500) coupled with the finest and quietest gears available and a large specially designed and efficient propeller that is guaranteed not to bend or break for two years after date of purchase, one year commerical application.

Unlike gas motors, the Ray Electric Outboard starts instantly, every time and requires no winterization. Charges overnight for pennies and will run all day long on a single charge giving you the security of knowing it will take you there and back efficiently.

The Ray Electric Outboard reaches its maximum efficiency when paired with one of our distinctively engineered Ray E-Boats that feature true displacement hulls. The Ray E-Boats are capable of cruising speeds of just less than 8 mile per hour or sustaining cruising speeds of five plus miles per hour for up to 12 hours on a single charge. Additionally, our Ray E-Boats handle easily both in forward and reverse giving confidence to even an inexperienced boater and even the grandkids.

The Ray Electric Outboard – Reliable, Powerful, Versatile and Quiet non-polluting power that will serve your needs for years and years. In fact, it will probably be the last electric outboard you ever buy, unless you are adding a second boat.
