Protect your waterways, and work or play at the same time, with an eco-friendly electric RIB from RS Electric Boats. With emissions-free propulsion and made using sustainable materials, RS Electric Boats help protect the planet so you can enjoy the ocean with the peace of mind that you’re helping reduce water and air pollution.
Spending time on our seas and lakes should be available for everyone to enjoy, now and in the future, and in harmony with nature. Our mission is to make a difference by giving you the ability to turn the tide and make our waterways cleaner.

RECYCLED CARBON FIBRE
The Pulse 63 uses infusible recycled carbon fibre. The non-woven material is made from feedstock, derived from scrap carbon fibre.
This award-winning process developed by ELG (now Net Zero) and MTAG, prevents scrap carbon fibre from ending up in landfill. MTAG infuses dry scrap material so the composite lay-up can be positioned precisely and infused in either a closed tool, or silicone bags (manufactured in-house by MTAG).
LIFE CYCLE ANALYSIS
By using the MarineShift360 life cycle assessment (LCA) tool, we’ve gained an understanding of the environmental footprint of our electric boats.
As a result, we have modified our manufacturing techniques and production materials to help reduce our use of carbon and promote the use of sustainable and recyclable materials.
One of the ways we are doing this is to use reusable silicone vacuum bags in our composite production techniques.
The Pulse 63 is built using sustainable materials including recycled plastic bottles, recycled carbon fibre and naturally sourced flax fibre in key areas.
Drawing upon experience gained developing sustainable construction of RS sailboats, RS Electric Boats uses the most sustainable laminate of any RIB in the industry. This innovative laminate is lightweight, long-lasting and incredibly strong. Plus, it can be recycled at the end of its useful life which helps to reduce landfill waste.
ONLY USE THE ENERGY YOU NEED
The lightweight hull of the Pulse 63 has been extensively tested and modified to ensure it is highly efficient when moving through the water.
Our expert design team has also worked hard to create a unique propulsion PDU system that generates optimum power and ensures minimal wasted energy – helping to protect the planet and save you money.
NO WATER POLLUTION
KIND TO WILDLIFE
According to the RYA’s Green Blue initiative, just one litre of oil can pollute one million litres of water! Most of this pollution is caused by everyday oil leaks, refuelling and engine emissions.
The Pulse 63 electric RIB doesn’t require any petrol, diesel or oil, so it is far less likely to cause any harm to our waterways and the wildlife and people using them. Electric RIBS are, therefore, a great way to significantly reduce water pollution.
NO NOISE POLLUTION
Scientific research suggests that noisy petrol and diesel boat engines can have detrimental effects on marine wildlife. The noise can prevent fish from hearing predators, hinder navigation for partially sighted mammals and even impact breeding cycles.
The Pulse 63 electric RIB is virtually silent so it causes minimal disturbance to marine wildlife above and below the surface.
