How does the Arc One compare to a gas boat?
The Arc One is far more reliable, cheaper to operate and maintain, quieter, quicker, and more seamlessly integrated with software than any gas boat. Plus, it doesn't release harmful emissions into the air and water when you use it.
How many Arc Ones will be produced?
The Arc One is an exclusive, limited-edition model. Only a handful will ever be produced.
When can I get an Arc One?
The Arc One is now on sale! You can join the waitlist here. Customer deliveries will begin this fall.
How much does the Arc One cost?
The Arc One costs $300,000. Unlike many other boats on the market, that price represents the all-in cost of the boat. No paying more for decent speakers or a trailer — everything you need to operate the boat comes standard, including life jackets, a trailer, and even a cooler.
Where is the Arc One made?
The Arc One is designed and built out of Arc's factory in Los Angeles, CA.
How do I charge the Arc One?
The Arc One can be charged using a variety of methods — from a standard wall outlet (Level 1) to something you'd use to power an electric car in your garage (Level 2), or even a DC fast charger (Level 3). The boat uses an industry-standard charging port (CCS1), and charging cables for both Level 1 and Level 2 charging will be included with the boat.
How long does the Arc One take to charge?
Assuming you plug the Arc One into a 240V outlet commonly found in garages or on docks, it should recharge overnight. No more lugging gas cans down to a dock or paying marina gas prices; wake up each morning to a boat that's ready to go! Plus, if you're lucky enough to be at a marina with a DC fast charger, you can get an 80% charge in as little as 40 minutes.
Does the purchase include service?
Yes. This is a world-class boat that will be paired with world-class service. You'll have direct access to the engineering team at Arc should you need any support or service.
Can I use the Arc One in saltwater?
The Arc One is designed for freshwater lakes and rivers, but it can handle brackish or saltwater environments with a little more effort to keep it clean. However, because the shape of the hull is optimized for high-speed performance, it should not be operated on large ocean waves.
Can I ski or wakeboard behind the Arc One?
Absolutely. We sure will be!
How long can I use the Arc One on a single charge?
For most people, the Arc One can handle a standard day out on the water. The exact usage time depends on how you... well, use it. Spending more time at high speeds will drain the battery faster, whereas cruising around at lower speeds is sustainable for over a day. On average, the boat should support 3-5 hours of active usage time. Lunch breaks come free of charge.
What if I run out of power?
Unlike a gas boat, running out of power on an Arc One is highly unlikely. Not only will the boat give you a warning if you start to get low on battery, but it can also run at slower speeds for extended periods of time — think of low power mode on your iPhone. If you're in the middle of Lake Tahoe, you can get back to any other point on the lake with less than 5% of power.
If you do manage to run out of power, you can get towed back to the nearest dock. Unlike with gas boats which need an actual gas pump, any dock with a plug will do the trick.
Electricity and water don't mix... what makes the Arc One safe?
All Arc battery packs and electrical systems are watertight, heavily reinforced and constantly monitored to give boaters and their families peace of mind on the water.
It’s also worth mentioning that many larger boats run on high voltage “shore power” when docked, so electricity in boating isn’t a new challenge. Similarly, today’s electric cars operate in a wide range of wet, harsh conditions that demand rigorous protection similar to that found on our boats.
What maintenance is required?
Keep it clean, and keep it charged. That's about it.
