Electric cruise boat

A client-centred approach

At Eseidon, we design vessels that meet client needs. Our industry-specific expertise and innovation means we know which model will be right for your business model, tour type, desired passenger capacity and more.

For example, when Ottawa Boat Cruise decided to invest in a larger vessel to meet the demands of their growing business, they turned to us. We had to follow strict design guidelines to produce a tour boat for the famous Rideau Canal, a Unesco World Heritage Site and popular tourist destination.

The challenge: Ottawa Boat Cruise wanted a boat that could accommodate at least 75 passengers and would not exceed 16 feet in width, a seemingly impossible feat considering how narrow the rideau canal was.

We designed the double wheelhouse, first in its class for those impossible narrow canals with side thrusters.

The result: A 100-passenger fully electric boat that is vibration-free, quiet, does not pollute and requires minimal maintenance.

We are currently building a second ship to meet their growing demand for river cruises. The best part? In four years of showing tourists and locals the beauty of the area, Ottawa Boat Cruise has had zero issues.The video below shows the boat launching and docking, and how the retractable HB350 bow and stern thrusters push this 30-ton boat off the wall with ease.

It’s smooth sailing ahead with our state-of-the-art technology

See how smoothly the boat turns? Sideshift’s revolutionary retractable thrusters make maneuvering all types of houseboats easy. This powerful, fully retractable technology provides silent operation, and the wireless joystick technology eliminates long wire runs for super easy installation.

You will quickly understand the importance of setting up side thrusters for easy manoeuvrability in tight areas.
