The Norwegian electric propulsed boat PolarcirkEL 860 IEP already set a new world record for serial produced boats, but the 50 knots record was not official and thus not valid as a world record.
During the HavExpo convention this May, the stage is set for an approved world record attempt. The attempt will take place right next to the convention area, and will be a spectacular event.
Evoy has developed the electric propulsion system used in this boat, which is mostly developed for tourism and aquaculture. The driveline is also capable to be implemented in other fast boats between 20 and 30 feet.
