Volt Boats, LLC
Volt Boats, LLC is a new startup company that has developed one of the world's first hybrid human/electric powered kayak. The concept came about in 2001 when one of the co-founders, Dick, lost control in an unexpected current during a paddling adventure in Alaska. Fortunately, a friend on a powered boat nearby was able to assist in rescuing. This incident prompted the idea for creating a hybrid human/electric powered kayak. Fast forward to now--- Volt Boats, LLC is finally ready to realize its first product, the K1.
The K1 is the culmination of over seven years of engineering and design. It features a highly advanced Integrated Design System (IDS), which has focused around the needs of real people. The muscle of Volt Boats lies in the patent-pending Power Pod, which houses a 1/2 horsepower-equivalent, rare-earth-magnet power motor along with a torque-increasing transmission and electronic steering system. The K1 also boasts flexible options for power that support both needs and budget. Steering could not be easier with a rugged joystick, optional foot pedals, or the copilot remote control. GPS will included in future models that will allow four innovative features: Hold Course, Go Home, Compass, and Speed-over-ground.
The K1 kayak is mainly designed for casual kayak paddlers and also anglers. The boat is relatively light and easy to use, so could be used for entire family outings.
This brochure will be given out to dealers at a large trade show.
Attached is a Microsoft Publisher file (VoltBrochure1.pub) with a rough sketch of what we'd like the brochure to look like. The .pub file has a standard template for a tri-fold brochure.
The FINAL folded brochure should be in the shape of a kayak. I have attached an .eps file (boatdeck.eps), which shows the basic outline of the kayak. The is just to get an idea of what the kayak looks like, the brochure DOES NOT have to be to scale with this drawing.
As far as design,
The front cover of the brochure should contain a picture of the kayak along with our logo which is included (Volt Final.ai). along with the title in the publisher file.
On the inside of the brochure, starting at the we'd like to have a landscape scene of an ocean and then integrate a picture of our kayak. In the bottom left corner, we'd like to include a table of benefits (benefitstable.doc)
On the middle we'd like to have 5 bullet points with our 5 most important features (features.doc)
On the right, we'd like have our PowerPod featured, there is information about the powerpod in features.doc, below this we'd like to have catchy text saying " Preorder online at voltboats.com with a $99, 100% refundable deposit"
On one of the back panels we'd like to feature the company story (story.doc), as well as info about specifications (Boat Specs.doc)
