Default What Options for Large Scale Electric Boats?

Good Afternoon,

I have been into 5th scale cars (gas and electric) for some time but would be new to boats. I would like a large scale brushless boat and the only one I am familiar with is the Pro Boat Zelos 48 which I understand was discontinued some time ago (wish I had gotten one when available). My searches didn't find a whole lot, but what are some good large scale electric boats currently on the market if any? I would consider scale or speed boats. I realize there are more gasoline options but gas would result in too much noise in the lake I intend to use.

Also, I have converted a Losi 5ive T truck from gas to brushless, so I could also consider that for a boat if a good option.

Thank you for any suggestions,

Would you consider building a wood boat? There is a company that sells a kit for a larger sized vee hull that's made for gas but could be made electric quite easily during construction
