Van Dutch goes green with electric yacht range

Electric yacht design has come on leaps and bounds in the past few years and the latest firm to dip a toe into the waters is Van Dutch.

The day boat manufacturer has this week unveiled plans to build a range of electric yachts, dubbed Van Dutch E.

Based on the Van Dutch 40 (pictured above), the new electric yacht range will be developed in partnership with Aguri Technologies, a firm with experience in the Formula E electric racecar series.

Still in the concept stage, there is as yet no details on how the craft will be powered, but Van Dutch is promising a 100% reduction in emissions for its new electric yacht range.

Anko Mast, CEO of VanDutch, explained his inspiration by saying: “Our approach is not just solely centered on design, engineering and manufacturing. It is also centered on creativity, innovation and sustainability.”
