Scoop – Ruban Bleu electric launch for private or fleet owners

A low maintenance electric launch with seating for 7

A recent private customer writes “Kate and I are having great time with Scoop on the Ouse with friends and other people saying what an attractive boat it is”. We agree wholeheartedly and have two more on order for arrival in the UK in August.

Fitted with a pod electric motor the Scoop is the best selling boat from the Ruban Bleu range. This French company has cornered the market for reliable and smart hire boats. The Scoop also comes in a + version with cushions, bimini, table, wooden inserts in the decks and extra storage lockers. There is an attractive range of colours for the hull with contrasting decks so you can personalise your boat or indeed your whole fleet if you are an operator.

The steering position means that even a complete novice will feel comfortable driving the Scoop. A set of 4 deep cycling batteries gives 6 hours cruising. For 2017 a full length canopy on stainless steel stanchions is available. It consists of acrylic waterproof fabric over a wooden frame and covers the cockpit. Additional side curtains can be provided. Canopy and side screens are an additional cost.

Call the office to arrange a test drive from mid April. More images available.
