The Fergus Falls company Go-Float aims to rock the boat industry in 2013 with its electric low-speed boats.
The company hopes to add jobs to help meet demand for the four models of the one-, two- and three-passenger fiberglass vessels that look a bit like paddle boats – except with electric motors, WDAY reports. The company says the boats are quiet, clean and easy to use.
The boats, which come with iPod adapters, are creating a big stir at boat shows, Steve Hendrickson, general manager of Go-Float, told WDAY. "We are very often the belle of the ball. There is a buzz around our booth. People are drawn in, they want to know what it is, they want to know how it works."
