Electric Boat Motor Designed for Princeton Crew Team
Inspired by the auto industry’s desire to reduce fossil fuel emissions through fleet electrification, a team of students in Princeton’s Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department has created a long-range electric boat motor in an effort to promote a similar electric revolution in the marine industry.
