The Q30 by Q Yachts from Finland is a full-electric boat, powered by a Oceanvolt propulsion.

Oceanvolt and Q Yachts were founded by an enthusiastic sailor. Oceanvolt was founded in 2004 – a long time before electric drives are hyped – to develop electric propulsion for sailing yachts. Years later, the company founder Mr. Janne Kjellman launched Q Yachts with its model Q30 to present a full-electric day boat with a clean and minimalistic design that fits perfectly to the silence of electric engines.

The boat has a range of 42 nautical miles with the standard 30 kWh battery pack or 80 nautical miles with the optional 60 kWh battery pack at a cruising speed of nine knots. In fast cruising mode 15 knots), the range reduces to 22 nautical miles respectively 40 nautical miles. The guest capacity is up to eight guests.

Interior

The bright 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.

The boat weighs 1500 kg – plus trailer it is still light enough to be towed by a Tesla Model X (towing capacity 2250 kg). In my eyes one of the coolest car/trailer combination in the world.

The boat has a base price of EUR 183,000 without VAT, ex Yard in Finland. The boat fits in a 40-feet container for shipment.

The first unit has been sold to the Finnish rapper Jore Tiihonen aka Cheek and the former professional poker player Jens Kyllönen.
