4,500 visitors saw the Xc 47 with electric propulsion at Boot Düsseldorf, many of whom have now contacted the yard for more information.

For X-Yachts' technical manager John Morsing, it is no surprise that two new orders for Xc 47 and X4³ MkII have just been signed on electric versions, and an order for X56 electric may just be next:

Electric propulsion opens a world of new opportunities for sailors, and I am sure our sales of electric models will accelerate rapidly in the coming years. We are working closely with the leading manufacturer Oceanvolt in Finland, and in short terms, what we are offering is very a silent electric engine powered by a lithium battery bank that gives a range of 25 nm. Combined with an 11kw diesel generator, the range extends up to 600 nm.

The large lithium propulsion battery bank can also power supply all AC installations like aircon, electric oven/induction hubs, dishwasher, washing machine etc. But even better - if the owner hoists the sails, the boat's move in the water will quickly be enough to run and recharge all systems as well.

We have explained and documented electric propulsion in our digital media since we first introduced it in an X4³ three years ago, but I can assure you that it will be a very positive surprise for any sailor to see and try the system in real life. Electric Propulsion will soon be the preferred driving source - says an optimistic and smiling John Morsing.
