A greener future with electrically powered motors

“Sailing is a clean sport that runs on natural wind and has minimal impact on the environment. The electric propulsion allows the coaches to act as green and environmentally friendly as the athletes. It might also open opportunities to allow further use of coach boats on lakes and waterways where there is a restriction on the use of fossil-fuelled boats. Electric boats are therefore likely to be the coaching boats of the future.”

About the Tornado 6m ZERO-E

The 6.0m boat has a very compact and narrow design, with the space on deck limited. So, we had to use a lot of tricks to minimize the space used by the battery and its support parts. We are well satisfied with the result, where the solution is that the battery cover acts as a bench.

The performance of the boat is in many ways very much the same as if it was powered by a 70hp petrol outboard engine. Our aim was to get exactly this — a boat that performs like ‘normal’ and doesn’t feel limited by the propulsion.

A big step towards more sustainable propulsion
