The Norwegian electric propulsed boat Evoy1 with the Evoy propulsion system have already set a new world record for serial produced boats, with the PolarcirkEL 860 IEP from Helgeland Plast. But the 50 knots record was not official because of lack of olympic timing equipment.
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 boats between 20 and 40 feet.
