Brunswick Corp., the parent company of brands that include Boston Whaler, Sea Ray and Mercury Marine, has announced a new boat line: Veer.

The Veer line is designed to support electric propulsion. The first model being offered is the Veer X13, which will be available this spring at a base price of $11,995.

“Recreational boating and fishing are enjoying increasing popularity with younger and more diverse consumers,” Matt Atilano, Veer director of strategy, stated in a press release. “We identified a gap in the marketplace and a need to create a more targeted and modern experience for these new boaters.”

The Veer is a 13-foot vessel built from rotomolded polyethylene. It is designed to be powered by Mercury Avator electric propulsion systems and Mercury FourStroke outboards, including the Avator 7.5e electric outboard (which is the first product in the Avator series of quiet, all-electric power that’s integrated with intuitive controls and advanced digital displays).

The engineering team at Brunswick’s Lund Boats crafted the Veer X13, whose standard features include a galvanized trailer that’s towable by cars and smaller SUVs.

Can the Veer X13 be ordered with other types of power? Yes. The boat is compatible with Mercury electric or gas propulsion.
