Frequently Asked Questions
What is the maximum speed of the boat?
Our tests have shown that our boats can travel at speeds of up to 35 knots. A distance of 70-100 nautical miles can be reached when travelling at lower speeds.
For how long can I drive?
While maintaining a consistent speed of 20 knots, our crafts are capable of travelling for more than 2 hours on a single charge.
What can I do if I breakdown in the middle of the sea?
Knowing how far you can travel on your current battery charge is vital when operating an electric boat. This is why all of our crafts come with a powerful display that provides information such as remaining nautical miles/time left on your current charge. This information is continuously updated depending on your speed, so there are no upsetting surprises. When the display reads 0%, your battery has a 10% charge remaining so you can safely get to a charging point.
Where is the boat manufactured?
Our electric craft is manufactured in Sweden. We happily accept international orders.
How does an electric boat change my experience?
