Re: Repowering with an electric engine?

The Zen 24 looks like a nice daysailer/weekender and seems very well built and equipped. But the electric propulsion is an $10,680 option without batteries. You would still need to plug in to charge any appreciable amount. The Yanmar diesel at $11,100 is a much better value and will give a much longer range under power at lower cost.

Nice boat but nothing new really.
