X Shore received the award for excellent product design

X Shore has been awarded with the German Design Award 2020 for excellent product design. The prize is awarded to projects that truly represent pioneering contributions to the German and international design landscape.

The jury was impressed by the fact that the speed boat is 100% electric while traveling up to 40 knots and 100 nautical miles on a single charge. X Shore Eelex 8000 represents a design icon with its clear, minimal design and contributes as a sustainable innovation to ocean protection.

Fans of X Shore raised €1.5 Million

We are thrilled to announce that 422 fans of X Shore invested more than €1.5 Million into silent marine mobility without fossil-fuel fumes. Konrad Bergström and the team thank all investors for the trust and the support. Together we look forward to creating value for a more sustainable and innovative future. The investment campaign closed successfully on October 9th, 2019.

“I am really excited to have our new crowd investors on board for the next phase of our journey,” said X Shore Founder and CEO Konrad Bergström. “I’ve put my own money behind X Shore because I want a better tomorrow for our oceans, and I’m confident that together, we can, and need, to accelerate positive change to realise this vision. Our goal is to fundamentally change how we travel at sea and it is incredible to see that so many like-minded investors have decided to back our mission.”

Welcome aboard the 100% electric Eelex 6500

  • Travel up to 100 nautical miles on a single charge.

  • X Shore crafts are capable of traveling at speeds of 40 knots.

  • Minimum footprint on the planet & your wallet.

  • Uses a groundbreaking propulsion system. Details coming soon.

Through new technology, innovative research and smart design, X Shore will propel the maritime industry into the age of sustainability with climate smart crafts.

Sustainability.

Electric power produces a minimal carbon footprint compared to fossil fuels. This in turn helps to combat climate change. Additionally, few people enjoy being around the undesirable elements of a fossil fuel engine. Toxic fumes and disruptive noises are ban- ished entirely with electric power, letting you focus on more important things such as the surrounding nature as your craft quietly glides through the water.

Design.

X Shore crafts a fusion of software and hardware – practical, smart and beautifully designed to blend in with nature. Inspired by the the Electric Eel, each X Shore craft features a modular interior and hull that is optimized for efficient passage through water.

Technology.

Outstanding acceleration and speed in combination with distance traveled is key for a modern lifestyle on the water. In private testing, X Shore crafts have traveled at speeds of up to 40 knots. A consistent speed of 25 knots can be achieved when cruising for more than 2 hours, and a distance of 100 NM can be reached when traveling at lower speeds.

The Power of Silence.

Silent, muscular and solitary, the Electric Eel glides almost imperceptibly through the waters of the Amazon and Orinoco. Its grace and precision are matched only by the power it wields, carrying electric currents capable of subduing predators and prey alike. The eel generates electric fields to navigate, sensing shifts in the marine landscape. Living in perfect equilibrium with its environment, the electric eel is also capable of great propulsion – leaping from the water at will. At X Shore, the electric eel is our inspiration. Nature’s design has given us all we need in the creation of a vessel defined by power, speed and precision; a vessel moving in perfect, silent harmony with the natural world. Just as no two of nature’s creations are the same, no two X shore crafts will share the same story. In time, they’ll navigate different waters and create unique experiences. Each X Shore vessel has a way of telling its own story: a sculpture, cast in bronze, of the electric eel, paying homage to our inspiration. Each sculpture oxidises over time, shifting with the ocean spray to reflect its environment and its story. Created by tattoo artist William Pacheco and sculptor Johan Johan Ferner Ström, we call this sculpture The Power of Silence.

From an idea in 1996, to a reality in 2018

In 1996 I trademarked X Shore globally, however it would be sometime before its development began. In fact, it wasn’t until 2012 that I began to work with the idea of creating an electric boat. In 2016 we built our first working prototype, and in 2018 my dream was realized when X Shore launched the Smögen 8000.

The name X Shore is very personal to me. “X” meaning “cross,” as in “cross shore.” In many ways the name represents my journey from one business to another – the eager explorer ready to anchor on a new shore.
