The silent power boat

Swedish marintech company X Shore is a developer of electric boats. The company’s goal is to disrupt the pleasurecraft industry with zero-emissions, zero-pollution powerboats.


Most pleasure-cruising vessels today still have combustion engines. X Shore’s electric boats offer an alternative that combines the power of a combustion engine with quiet, fossil-free performance.


Electric boats have long been an option- if you want to go slow. Duffy Boats, for example, have been produced since the1970s. Retrofits are another solution, available in both hybrid and electric, like those sold by Oceanvolt and Torqueedo. But as the world begins moving away from gasoline and diesel engines, the race is on to build fully electric powerboats like X Shore’s. What sets X Shore apart is their industry-leading range of 100 nautical miles after fewer than two and a half hours of charging.

X Shore’s Eelex 8000 is an all-electric boat for the entire family, offering 100+nautical miles from one charge, a top speed of 35 knots, and a cruising speed of 25 knots. Built with Flax fabrics, recycled PET, and dressed up in cork, the boat is sustainable in every aspect.

The boat also comes with the X Shore app, a Garmin MARQ watch, and software that aligns with real-time in-formation regarding the boat’s health, security, and status.

The option to place a custom order en-ables customers to create their own unique Eelex, with a full range of different additions to both the exterior and interior.

Global competitors include Zin Boats,Vision Marine Technologies and Ingenity.

With the Sustainability report, we want to recognise companies that not only have a great innovation or solution that has a significant impact on lowering CO2 emissions, but also have put in place measures to scale and commercialise.

The companies in the report have been thoroughly researched by the Megadeals team through interviews with highly ranked profiles within the organisations.

The key principle is that only when the great sustainability innovations scale and commercialise they can create a deep impact and the world a better place.

Why is this important? We simply don't have time to wait.
