X Shore

X Shore Eelex 8000 World premiere at boot 2019

January 23 2019

Travel up to 100 nautical miles with a single charge. Uses a revolutionary propulsion system. Minimal ecological footprint on the planet and gentle on your wallet. X Shore ships are capable of driving at speeds of up to 40 knots.

The X Shore hull features a groundbreaking design that optimizes distance and speed by minimizing weight and drag. The distinctive ridges of the hull allow air to flow between the ship and the water and reduce friction. These hull design improvements reduce fuel consumption by approximately 35%.

Customisable
The minimalist design and flexible configuration of the Eelex 8000 offers the owner a blank canvas that he can personalise. A system of struts and rails makes it easy to secure different types of loads and add or move seats. In addition, the load capacity is 2500 kg, so you have the option of carrying many passengers or heavy equipment.

Design
The distinctive silhouette and wood finish of the Eelex 8000 offer a functional and easily recognisable design that is undeniably unique. The high bow makes the ship safe and seaworthy, protects passengers from wind and splashing water and facilitates access from higher docks, while the lower transom allows the breeze to freely enter the boat and facilitates heavy loading and unloading.

Propulsion system
The X Shore propulsion system distinguishes it from other vehicles. The single-shaft construction uses the latest technology to drive the boat with greater efficiency. Two battery variants are available, 90 kWh and 120 kWh. Charging is done via two (230 V/5 AMP) or three (400 V/30 AMP) connections. The Smögen 8000 can be fully charged in only 8 hours, depending on the power source.
