X Shore launch in Stockholm
X Shore in the forefront for a healthier ocean environment
Press release • Stockholm, 25 February 2019
X Shore’s founder, the Swedish serial entrepreneur Konrad Bergström, has taken his long-time experience of entrepreneurship to the marine life to develop the market’s most technical advanced and sustainable boats.
- It’s the entrepreneurs’ and innovators’ duty to find solutions for a modern life with as low impact on the environment as possible. At X Shore we are striving to use the most sustainable materials and the most advanced technology to reach our goal as leaders of the segment of high performance electric boats whilst respecting the environment, says Konrad Bergström.
X Shore at Sweden’s biggest boat show with innovative exhibition stand
X Shore’s stand at the Stockholm boat show ”Allt för sjön”, 1-10 March, takes the user experience to the next level by combining X Shore’s three ground pillars: design, technology and sustainability.
Linking robots with electric mobility is part of X Shore’s ambitions. The ”Furhat robot” greets the visitors at the stand and can answer one hundred percent accurate on any question regarding X Shore’s boats. With a peaceful break from everyday life, the visitor will fully experience X Shore’s lead words “The power of Silence” (electric crafts are soundless!), with a voyage for all senses through visual images, X Shore composed music inspired by the sea, scents of tar and enlightening graphics of technology, design and X Shore’s visions on sustainability.
X Shore’s latest boat launch, the well-received 6,5 metre high performance electric motorboat Eelex 6500, will be on display at the stand as well as several details of the boats. A hull upside down will demonstrate the ground-breaking hydrodynamics, which are proved more energy efficient, thus saving battery time and increasing speed.
The booth will be inaugurated on Saturday March 2nd at 3 pm with famous Swedish music artist Ebbot Lundberg on stage, special VIP guests and founder Konrad Bergström presenting X Shore.

X Shore’s electrical crafts leading the market
The combination of speed and distance in an electric boat is what makes X Shore’s crafts unique. Today the boats reach top speeds of 40 knots and a fully charged battery can take you a distance of 100 nautical miles. The hydrodynamics is important for the technology to work. X Shore collaborates with Rolls Royce to test and develop the most advanced hull, shaft, propeller and rudder. This, in combination with the boats planing characteristics, provide a minimal drag in the water, resulting in higher speeds and longer reach. The design is inspired by the South American electrical eel, which has a big head, smaller rear and moves fast and powerfully through the water.
EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF SILENCE AND WELCOME ABOARD.
