Hinckley Presents 1st Fully Electric Luxury Yacht

US-based yacht builder Hinckley has unveiled the world’s first fully electric luxury yacht – Dasher.

Designed from the outset for fully electric propulsion, Dasher achieves a new standard of excellence pairing modern styling with hi-tech composite construction, the company informed.

Borrowing its name from the game-changing, original Picnic Boat hull #1, sports a carbon-epoxy composite hull shape designed by Michael Peters to provide superior performance and handling.

With hand-painted, lightweight composite Artisanal Teak, every ounce of weight has been shaved and sculpted, Hinckley said.

Titanium hardware and console details were both 3D printed to achieve shapes and a level of precision unavailable in typical construction methods.

Dasher powers its 28 feet 6 inches with twin 80hp electric motors and dual BMW i3 lithium ion batteries.

“The Hinckley Whisper Drive silent propulsion system combines the latest hydrodynamics, electric power and digital control systems to achieve the performance handling and maneuverability that discerning clients will expect,” Peter O’Connell, President and CEO of The Hinckley Company, said.

Featuring quiet propulsion, zero emissions and zero time lost at the fueling dock, Dasher accepts dual 50 amp charging cables, standard on most docks, so it can charge twice as fast as the most popular plug-in electric cars. It gains a full charge in under 4 hours with dual 50amp charging.

The vessel has a cruising speed of 10mph with fast cruising at 18-27 mph, and a range of 40 miles at cruising speed and 20-25 miles at fast cruising speeds.
