A boat is a magic carpet that opens a world of adventures, but few are as simple yet capable as the sleek Magonis Wave e-550. Powered by an electric Torgeedo outboard engine and sized to accommodate 6, the 18’ e-550 is easy to operate and the perfect size for casual inshore cruises. Electric power allows access to lakes and other waters closed to boats powered by gas or diesel engines. The bowrider design features a forward u-shaped seating area which can be accessorized with a sun pad, table and refrigerator. The walkthrough layout allows easy access aft to the dual swim platforms. An iPad Pro linked to a Fusion audio system and a full suite of Navionics navigation charts keeps the party going in the right direction while monitoring speed and power reserves. Power options include the 4-kW Torqeedo Cruise 4.0 RL with a max speed of 5 knots and the Torqeedo Cruise 10.0 RL for speeds up to 9 knots. Two MAG Power RL options allow for a longer range with speeds up to 22 knots. Actual range is determined by the speed of the boat and the weight of passengers and gear onboard. Best practice calls for short cruises initially to determine actual comfortable range; MagonisBoats.com.
