Global launch of new electric tender from X Shore
January 07 2019
X Shore’s new Eelex models will make their debut at Boot Dusseldorf next week
The Eelex 6500 is a 6.5-metre open/tender boat that will be fresh off the moulds for a global launch in Düsseldorf on 19 January, 2019. The Eelex will exist in two models, 6.5 metres and 8 metres.
They are a development of X Shore’s 8000 Smögen Edition, launched as a prototype in March 2018. The Eelex models have increased performance and more sustainable materials, says X Shore. Both models have the capacity to reach top speeds of 40 knots and X Shore says they are among the few e-boats to attain a cruising speed of 25 knots. They can travel up to 100 nautical miles on a single charge at a slower pace. Outstanding acceleration and speed in combination with exceptional mileage is key for X Shore crafts and what makes X Shore unique.
Inspired by the shape of the South American electric eel, each craft features a modular interior and hull that is optimised for efficient passage through water.
“X Shore boats are vanguard in technology, design and sustainability. Once you’ve experienced the sea without noise and fumes, there is no turning back. It’s magic. That is why we are so strongly committed to contribute to a fossil fuel free shift of the marine industry”, explains X Shore founder and Swedish entrepreneur Konrad Bergström.
X Shore is ready to take the first orders of its two boat models, with 10 weeks to delivery. The online “craft customizer” launches the same day, where buyers can custom build and order a craft on the cleverly designed X Shore website.
