Magonis electric boats stretching to Copenhagen, Barcelona, Canada
Magonis Electric Boats, which launched its flagship Wave e-550 model at the Venice e-Regatta last year, is now expanding its sales and distribution outlets and strategy with its own electric boat show in Copenhagen, a new showroom in Barcelona and a new market in Canada.
If that’s not enough to keep them busy, they also work with research organization Battech in Spain developing custom hydrogen fuel cell technology for the Wave e-550 and new designs on the drawing board.
Copenhagen ‘Magonis Electric Boats Road Show’
Like many electric boat manufacturers, Magonis has found that one of the best ways to convince a potential customer of the benefits of electric boating is to simply take them out in an electric boat and show them how different the boat is. (and enjoyable!) – the water experience can be without the noise and noxious fumes of a fossil fuel engine.
The Swiss Association of Electric Boats has a ‘Swiss Tour‘ every year that visits four cities with a variety of electric boats that people can hang out on, and maybe Magonis took a page from their book.
From Thursday 28 April to Sunday 1 May, the Magonis Wave e-550 with its Mag Power 30.0 engine will be available for test drives in Copenhagen, departing from Wilders Plads Marina in the heart of the city on the Christianshavn canals. The MagPower 30.0 is perfect for cruising through canals, but also gives the e-550 the ability to reach a top speed of 22 knots / 40 km/h.

Across the Atlantic, Magonis has just entered into an agreement with Oasis Global, the umbrella company of several companies in the leisure and sports vehicle sector, including Segway Powersports and Hoosier-Offroad.
Segway Powersports focuses on ATVs and all-terrain side-by-side vehicles (SSV/SXS), while Hoosier Offroad focuses on dirt bikes and racing. Oasis has a distribution network of approximately 45 dealerships across Canada, who will now be adding boats to their offerings with the addition of the Magonis Wave e-550.
Oasis CEO Mark Rivers said, “We are very excited to bring Magonis to Canada. We reviewed a number of electric boats and were extremely impressed with the precision build and finish of the Wave e-550. We also think it’s perfectly positioned for electric boats in Canada’s inland waters, with its price and balance between range and cruising/top speed.
Hydrogen range extender for night boats
On the technology development front, Magonis has partnered with Spanish battery research institute Battech to examine ways to integrate custom hydrogen fuel cell technology into the Magonis fleet.
Battech was formed by the Energy Research Institute of Catalonia (IREC) and the Eurecat Technology Center of Catalonia as a joint research, development, testing and innovation unit specializing in everything related to batteries. They, in turn, are working with organizations like the European Battery Alliance to find the best ways to implement the circular economy and sustainability of non-fossil fuels for the future.
Magonis’ goal, working with Battech, is to see hydrogen fuel cells as a range extender for the larger nightboats they are planning. As Francois Jozic, CEO of Magonis, said, “When people think of going from combustion to electric, they imagine trade-offs, but we intend to show the market that going electric is makes it an upgrade with smart and limitless possibilities”.
