The evolution of boats and engines that do not use fossil fuels has achieved much. Testifying to this trend at the entrance to the Genoa Boat Show, which kicks off on Thursday, Sept. 20, will be a design by a Milan-based studio: a 100 percent electric and therefore zero-impact, totally eco-friendly boat. The studio that developed this boat is H3O Yacht Design, a team that has long been pursuing projects for sustainable mobility on the water.
Repowere, H3O’s yacht is 10.50 meters long and recharges at the electricity column. Thanks to the hull’s optimized water lines and two 23KW engines, it easily reaches 7 knots, reaching a maximum of 11. In the deckhouse version, it can take up to 12 people, to which the crew is added. Side entrances greatly facilitate boarding. With two separate charging systems on board, the batteries can be charged through the charging systems used by electric cars. Form stability is ensured by the presence of longitudinal skids that maintain nearly constant trim and buoyancy at different load levels. This boat is built with infusion molding technology, structures, stability and deck organization requirements comply with current European directives for public inland water transportation. In the open version, the boat, can be registered for up to 29 seats. Attached is the medium resolution photo
