Powered by an Oceanvolt AXC20 electric motor, the Q30 Motorboat from Q Yachts. It’s the “smoothest and most silent motorboat on the market.” Oceanvolt was founded in 2004 a long time before electric drives are hyped to develop electric propulsion for sailing yachts.
With the optional 60kWh battery pack the 30-foot vessel has a range of 92 miles at the 10 mph cruising speed or 25 miles full-out at 17 mph.
Its fiberglass hull has a sleek, hydrodynamically optimized form that produces minimal waves, and hides a spacious, comfortable cabin underneath. The sleekly minimalist Q30 uses a clever silent propulsion system called “Oceanvolt” that’s been used as an alternative power source for sailboats.
The 30-foot hull and deck are made of lightweight vinyl ester resin and fiberglass that’s been laminated with a shimmering white gelcoat. The guest capacity is up to eight guests. The styled interior of the Q30 offers the opportunity for an overnight stop with bed and head. The skylight lets natural light in the cabin. An all-around LED and LED spots serving to light at night.
Passengers can enjoy a two-person sunbathing platform, four-seat table, minimalist below-deck lounge and hi-fi audio from B&I Beoplay A1 wireless Bluetooth speaker, while the captain controls navigation, interior and exterior LED lights from an iPad.
