Electric propulsion is slowly making its way into bigger boats and much like in the auto industry, it is starting with more premium products – not unlike Tesla.
Q-Yachts is jumping onboard with the Q30 all-electric day cruiser yacht. The Finland-based startup says that it aims to become the ‘Tesla of the seas.’
The company is enabled by Oceanvolt, a manufacturer of electric propulsion systems for sailboats. Janne Kjellman, the founder of Q-Yachts, has been working “in stealth mode” on the project for several years.
It was finally unveiled a few months ago and now they are making their first delivery.
“We are confident that this is the beginning of something big. We are very pleased to have two young friends who appreciate the unique values which Q-Yachts stands for and who like our design, as our first owners”
