About the Picnic 20

The Picnic 20 is the newest in the Templar Marine electric boat line. As the little sister to the flagship Cruiser 26, the Picnic model is a smaller, lighter and cheaper option now available to the North American consumer market. The Picnic series comes in 4 distinct models, starting at just CDN$59,000, with additional A la carte options customers can customize to create their own unique electric boat. At 20′ in length and 7′ 10″ beam, the Picnic series will easily handle 8 – 10 passengers for all day emission free, silent cruising. This is an ideal boat for rental fleets. Buying an electric boat is now easier than ever and with a price tag equivalent to a comparable gas boat, with the bonus of never paying for fuel, oil changes, engine/leg maintenance or winterizing. Enjoy year-round boating with zero environmental impact.
