Welcome to Powerboat-World - UK - Powerboat World
More and more craft are looking to go green, and the electric/hybrid sector changes almost daily. When we saw the X Shore Eelex 6500/Eelex 8000, and learned that they were capable of 40 knots; well, we had to look into that. Their founder, Konrad Bergström, not only has many runs on the board, he can point to some very specials brands too, like Marshall speakers. He offered some ideas as to the whole equation, and kindly shared them with us. "We all come from and belong to the sea. I've always respected my relationship to water, after all, it is a major part of my body, and without water there would be no life."
"For my entire life I have taken notes, and learned from the sea. I have experienced the many things it has to offer. What it can give, and what it can take away. I have taken this passion for the ocean and transformed it into X Shore. The letter 'X' means cross, as in 'cross shore', and specifically to go from one point to another. For me personally, it also takes on an additional meaning. It represents my journey from one business to another the eager explorer ready to anchor on a new shore."
"In 1996 I trademarked X Shore globally, however it would be sometime before its development began. Several entrepreneurial adventures were to come first, including founding Zound Industries, which introduced me to the burgeoning technology scene, and opened up new thoughts. It wasn't until 2012 that I began to work with the idea of creating an electric craft, and so X Shore began to take shape. In 2016 we built the first working prototype, and in 2018 X Shore launched the eElectric Smögen 8000 Edition."
"The future is bright for our Earth, if we want it to be. We look forward to working with our partners in order to make this so. X Shore is ready to drive this."
