ATLANTA, March 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Co-founder of the all-new, first-of-its-kind, high-powered and technologically advanced bass boat, Colby Clayton, is pleased to announce the official launch of the LURION iON21. As the first fully electric bass boat ever released on the market, the iON21 offers more than just ingenuity, it offers an experience.
“The LURION iON21 will certainly change the fishing experience,” said co-founder Colby Clayton. “Our boat was designed not only to make it easier to catch fish, but we wanted to make it more fun on the water, too. More fish + more friends = more fun. Unlike our competitors, our boats accommodate four passengers instead of just two. We also put a lot of thought into the boat’s practicality, engine capacity, technology, and finer details. This is not your average fishing boat.”
Uniquely designed, the iON21 offers a 360-degree range for fishing with fish-finding controls in the front and the rear of the boat. Built for speed, this exhilarating ride can reach a top speed of up to 100 MPH. Best of all, it is fully electric, powered by 100kw batteries when in tournament mode that’s performs like a 250HP equivalent outboard.
The LURION iON 21 also comes standard with fully integrated advanced fishing technology connecting all six screens simultaneously. Among the many other bells and whistles, the iON 21 comes standard with top-tier materials, a four-seat cockpit design (twice the amount of competitor seats), and four bow screens integrated into the boat.
“My son Colby is a high school student and avid tournament bass angler,” added father and co-founder Cameron Clayton. “Inspired by his frustration after being unable to fish off the back of his boat during a competition because the engine was in the way, he came up with the idea of redesigning and making a more fishing-friendly boat that would allow more accessibility.”
