X Shore Eelex 8000 electric boat
Finally, a high-performance all-electric boat, capable of reaching a speed of over 35kn, with an excellent range of over 100 NM or 185 km (at reduced speed) with an internal battery of 120 KWH.
It can be recharged in less than 70 minutes with DC FAST CHARGING equipment or even in 6 hours with a 32 amp terminal.
It is of European manufacture. She is a 26ft long, 8.2ft wide boat with a 2.6ft draft and weighs 5,730 lbs. It is propelled by a shaft.
There are more than 15 possible configurations, I have configured one with all the options, it comes to about $ 430,000 CAD, to this amount must be added the transport, the preparation.
We are lucky, it will be distributed in Canada as of now by the firm BCI Marine (here in Quebec), owned by Patrick Hardy.
It is a very versatile boat in all possible configurations, I would say very adventure oriented, the deck layout allows for multiple uses.
To see during the next Boat Show, it will undoubtedly be a major attraction.
