Andy Rebele, founder, and CEO of Pure Watercraft wants to make change by achieving higher performance, more efficient, and a non-polluting boating experience. Exhaust, gas, inspections, maintenance, noise, and toxic waste have been detractors from traditional combustion marine engine operations.
“More than 87 million U.S. adults participated in reactional boating in 2014. 11.87 million recreational boating vessels were registered in the U.S. in 2015” – data by Statista.com and the NOAA. Due to few emission control standards boats produce 1/3 the emissions that cars do, and 30% of this pollution stays in the water. Pure Watercraft is on a mission to do for boats what Tesla has done for cars.
The benefits don’t stop with clean energy.
High Performance Boating, Quiet and Clean
Maintenance Free, No Gas, Zero Emissions
Presently Pure Watercraft is focused on the 10 HP to 50 HP market. For the time being, as bass anglers, there will still be a need for our current version of ‘state of the art’ high-end bass boats. As this technology progresses and battery size becomes smaller other markets in the marine industry will undoubtedly open up. Keep in mind Pure Watercraft has already produced an electric marine engine, 210 KW which equals approximately 280 HP, that has achieved speeds up to 48 MPH on a 21' open bow Cobalt!
The Bass Challenge
Speaking of bass boats and the related fishing, Southern California is a home to many high-level bass tournaments. So-Cal is also the land of man-made reservoirs, these impoundments are relatively small and governed by low-speed limits. This makes these venues ideal for a Pure Watercraft bass challenge.
So can two anglers effectively utilize Pure Watercraft technology in a competitive event against some of the best bass anglers anywhere? Enter Troy Lindner and me, Team Pure Watercraft.
The answer is yes, proving that this companies efforts have a broad future all across the boating community. By the way, Team Pure Watercraft definitely has an advantage on surface boiling fish, we're quiet and stealthy.

Environmental health is omnipresent and hopefully here to stay. As boaters, a vast majority of our public waterways and our freedom to access them is constantly being restricted. The transportation of Quagga Mussel Larve via internal water cooled gas combustion engines in freshwater lakes and reservoirs is one example. The timing for Pure Watercraft technologies couldn’t be better. As Ed Ives Pure Watercraft Ambassador says, “We are from the future.”
