This model converts the Encore to a true all electric boat. The elimination of the pedal drive system gives a spacious interior for comfortable luxurious cruising. The powerful 55-pound thrust underwater motor is powered by a 12 volt deep cycle marine battery. The battery, motor control box, and battery charger are located in the Encore's front storage compartment. Like the Encore P/E, the speed controller is located next to the steering handle.  Features include a keyed battery switch and LED battery gauge, mounted on the front bulkhead
