Gilching, Germany (December 03, 2018) – Swedish serial entrepreneur Konrad Bergström has developed the X Shore (Cross Shore) a new, fully electric utility tender that mixes Scandinavian design with heavy-duty practicality and respect for nature.
“The X Shore team has set fresh eyes on the task of designing a tough, yet elegant, superyacht tender,” said Christoph Ballin, CEO of Torqeedo. “An electric tender offers many advantages to the yacht owner, including reduced maintenance and a simplified fuel mix onboard.”
The state-of-the-art hull of the X Shore eElectric 8000 has a distinctive Scandinavian design with clean, simple and functional lines. The Glenn Karlsson-designed hull takes in air from the sides, reducing friction and increasing efficiency. The innovative hull shape allows the vessel to handle offshore conditions and the twin inboard Torqeedo motor system with batteries by BMW i delivers a clean, quiet and emission-free boating experience.
“We want the owner of the eElectric 8000 to see the quiet journey as a part of the experience, to cruise the seas without disturbing wildlife and our sensitive waters. It's a magic feeling gliding across water, only hearing the wind and the sound of the bow splitting the waves." says Marcus von Euler, head of design at Norra Norr.
The wide, open layout allows you to haul cargo or stretch out to bask in the sun, and the rubber-clad bow makes mooring easy. The flexible seating areas in the stern make it easy to treat your friends to a silent sunset cruise, anchor in a quiet harbor and go for an evening swim. A system of struts and rails makes it easy to secure different types of loads or add more seats for maximum utility. “We all come from the ocean; we must learn to take better care of it." explains Konrad Bergström. “X Shore is a boat for the smart generation. It is economical, durable, and cleverly designed. And it's quiet. We built it for you to love it.”
