The electric yacht of the future appeared in Finland. Many consider Q-Yachts Q30 as the “Tesla Of The Sea“.
The first model, Q30, is equipped with a 30 kWh or 60 kWh battery for up to 42 or 80 nautical miles (48-92 miles) of range at cruise speed of 9 knots (10.3 mph) or a lot less 22/40 nautical miles at top speed of 15 knots (17.3 mph). The 20 kW electric motors are supplied by Oceanvolt.
Mr. Janne Kjellman, the founder of Q-Yachts and a keen sailor, set out over a decade ago to develop a silent propulsion system for boats. The solution was found in new kind of electrical propulsion system—the Oceanvolt.
