Yachting | 2020 | Text: Marcus Krall
Electro mobility is not only a hot topic within the automotive industry, but also on the water. STREIFZUG Yachting presents six exciting electric boats.
Frauscher 740 Mirage
Frauscher is considered a pioneer in electric boat construction and already generates 30 percent of its sales with emission-free models. The 740 Mirage takes six guests with her, who can sit in the cockpit or lie down in the stern; a small cabin is also available. The minimalist design comes from Kiska, the drive from Torqueedo and the battery from BMW. Range: 30 nautical miles at 5.4 knots. Top speed: 15 knots. Price: from 215 000 euro.
Ten metres long and motorised in peak operation with over 430 kilowatts, the Vita X belongs to the premium class of the worldwide e-boat fleet. On deck, the boat can be transformed from a lounge into a dining mode. With 700,000 euro not exactly cheap, but very stylish.
Rand Supreme 27
Well-divided boat with seating group in the bow and dining table in the cockpit; in addition there are three sun loungers in the stern. The 8.40 meter long and 2.55 meter wide Danish construction can be powered with up to 110 kilowatts. A pantry and a bathroom are also part of the equipment and make the Supreme 27 also suitable for longer cruises. Price: from 169 000 euro.
Naumatec E-Tender 460
A rather handy boat with a length of 4.60 metres, a beam of two metres and a combination of an air hose and a rigid hull – called RIB in yacht jargon. Such models drive themselves comfortably and safely; this Italian model can accommodate up to six passengers. Maximum engine power of the 500-kilo tender is 30 kilowatts. Price: from 81,000 euro.
These 9.30 metres from Q-Yachts prove that a lot of good boatbuilders are located in Finland; Shipyard founder Janne Kjellman also invented the boat’s propulsion system. The Q30 which makes a good impression in any harbour, is up to 15 knots fast and has a maximum range of 80 nautical miles. It is powered with 20 kilowatts and costs 212,000 euro.
