Elektroyahta Dasher - «Water Tesla» for half a million dollars
Electric transport is becoming really popular, and the transition to electric think not only manufacturers and municipal vehicles, but also developers of air and water vessels. Among the latter distinguished American company Hinckley, which manufactures luxury yachts since 1928. Their latest development - Dasher, electric ship luxury. Will be released by the piece, and is very expensive.
two lithium-ion batteries by 40 kW / h are installed inside the boat - are exactly tied for electric BMW i3. Twin electric motors Torqeedo Deep Blue 80i 1800 allow it to reach a speed of 50 kilometers per hour. Not so much, but for high-end ship, created to make it on a leisurely boat trips, quite well. the battery charge is enough for 60 kilometers under the condition that the speed of the yacht will not exceed 15 kilometers per hour. If you accelerate, trip distance will be reduced at times.
The ship's length is 8, 7 meters and it weighs three tons - for its production of modern eco-friendly materials were used, which allowed to significantly reduce the weight. At the presentation of the yacht in Newport company representatives compared their offspring with cars the Tesla, but I must say that the comparison turned out not quite correct, because this yacht will cost considerably more expensive than electric - Dasher will cost from half a million dollars. And the price for the ship in the base set.
