On October 26 – 30, 2022, Vision Marine Technologies (NASDAQ: VMAR) attended the 63rd annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (“FLIBS”), which attracted approximately 100,000 visitors, and saw 1,200 exhibitors spread over six miles of floating docks and seven locations around Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Vision Marine proudly showcased its groundbreaking E-Motion™ 180E (180 hp) fully electric outboard motor and associated powertrain system, equipped onto several next gen fully electric powerboat models.
Additionally, FLIBS gave Vision Marine’s team the opportunity to reconnect in person with marine industry consumers and personnel, subsequent to the unfortunate cancellation of IBEX Tampa 2022, due to threats from Hurricane Ian. Attendees who stopped by Vision Marine’s booth were prompted with a market analysis questionnaire put together by industry experts and partners. Marine industry consumers were polled on their preferences, apprehensions, and expectations regarding ownership of electric boats, thus helping Vision Marine stay up to date with consumer needs.
