Orlando, FL (June 2, 2011) – The 100% electric Ski Nautique E pulled the head-to-head slalom exhibition with legendary skiers Andy Mapple and Kris LaPoint during the 52nd Masters Water Ski Tournament.
“It was not until after the event that I fully realized what had happened; we just skied an event behind the world’s first 100% electric tournament ready ski boat,” said Andy Mapple. “By developing this boat and including it at the Masters, Nautique once again demonstrated its forward thinking for the industry and our sport.”
For its first major event in front of thousands of spectators, the Ski Nautique E pulled LaPoint on Saturday and Mapple on Sunday through the slalom course, and also led the parade during the opening ceremonies on Sunday, kicking off the Masters Finals.
“It was amazing to watch the crowd react to the 100% electric Ski Nautique E,” stated Nautique President/CEO Bill Yeargin. “Everyone was incredibly quiet and captivated as they watched the electric boat in action.”
