Last summer I got a nice phone call from my customer in the south of Sweden. His summer vacation had just started and appropriately the engine of his (an engineer of polymer chemistry) boat had broken down. He thought this should never happen again, a man shall get to the sea, when he wants to. So he asked if we could modify an electric motor for him.We started to study and explore the assignment, but could not find an applicable construction to customize an island commute/utility?? boat. Batteries are large and heavy. Wrong balance, too wide hulls for energy saving drive, too big waves. “Well, then, build one. Make a new, light and as fast a version as possible.”, he said.
The client gave us unbelievable freedom to create “a great boat to commute”. This is what is being created in our workshop at the moment: ~ 400 kg of epoxy composites, ~500 kg of electrotechnology, over 20 knots. Stable and easy to handle. Great directional stability even at slow speed. Extremely light hull, versatile usage. Welcome to see for yourself! If that is not possible, please contact Pekka by phone or send e-mail. We’ll be sailing by the summer 2017!
Upgrade in summer 2017. Watch the video on the finished boat.
