The Most Powerful Electric Wake Boat: Arc Sport 500hp Demo Review in Long Beach

Arc has introduced its highly anticipated Arc Sport 500hp electric wake boat, and the initial models have already hit the water for testing in Long Beach, CA. The performance of this electric wake boat is truly impressive, as we experienced during a demo session.

Founded in 2021 in Los Angeles, Arc is a relatively new player in the luxury boat market. The company was started by engineers Mitch Lee and Ryan Cook, who previously worked at Boeing. Despite being a young company, Arc has quickly grown to over 100 employees, with many hailing from notable companies such as SpaceX, Tesla, and Rivian.

The introduction of the Arc Sport follows the release of the limited-edition Arc One speedboat, which was priced at $300,000 with only 20 units produced. The Arc Sport, priced starting at $258,000, offers a more affordable option in the wake boat segment when compared to other high-end wake boat manufacturers like Nautique and Malibu.

Wake boats have gained popularity recently, particularly for wakeboarding and wakesurfing activities. With specialized features like high power, adjustable towers, and ballast control systems, wake boats provide a thrilling experience on the water. The Arc Sport is equipped with a powerful 500hp electric motor that delivers impressive torque and acceleration, setting it apart from traditional wake boats.

The electric propulsion system of the Arc Sport offers several advantages, including zero emissions, quieter operation, and easier maintenance. Powered by a massive 226kWh battery, the boat provides up to 4-5 hours of use on a single charge. Charging the boat is convenient, with options for 240V shore power or 225kW CCS DC fast chargers at select marinas.

In addition to its performance capabilities, the Arc Sport features a modern interface that can be updated over-the-air, similar to Tesla vehicles. The boat’s customizability extends to various functions like adjusting wake settings, boat pitch, and camera views. With seating for 15 passengers, ample storage space, and side thrusters for precise maneuvering, the Arc Sport offers a comfortable and enjoyable boating experience.

As the demand for eco-friendly boating solutions grows, electric boats like the Arc Sport are poised to lead the industry towards a cleaner and more sustainable future. With its cutting-edge technology and innovative design, the Arc Sport represents a significant step forward in the evolution of electric watercraft.
