Electric motor company wins Metstrade Boat Builders Award

More good news for electric boats today as Torqeedo wins Metstrade’s Boat Builders Award in collaboration with Groupe Beneteau’s Excess brand and mobility technology company ZF.

The E’Lab, an Excess 15 catamaran with Deep Blue Hybrid, was nominated in the category of Collaborative Solution between Boat or Superyacht Builder and its Supply Chain Partner. The Award recognises: ‘Boat builders and supply chain partners that have collaborated from a conceptual stage to develop a particular solution to a design challenge, innovation or efficiency improvement.

The three companies have been working together to bring the first installation of Torqeedo and ZF’s new Deep Blue 50 kW saildrives to life in an Excess 15 catamaran. The project is part of the global Groupe Beneteau strategy outlined at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September, when they announced electric propulsion initiatives for Excess, Beneteau and powerboat brand Delphia.

The Excess 15 model is the largest in the company’s line of catamarans, and the E’Lab has twin Deep Blue 50 kW electric saildrives developed with ZF, two Deep Blue high-capacity Li-ion batteries, and a complete onboard energy management system which keeps the pilot constantly informed of how much power is being consumed and generated by each component.
