Full-Electric Boat Q30

Q30 - Full-Electric Boat from Finland

The Q30 by Q Yachts from Finland comes up with 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.


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.

Airbus H160

Tenders: Airbus H160 Helicopter

Not a secret: Helicopters are a very important must-have for busy yacht owners. Some are chartered from the airport to the yacht and some helicopters are a part of the yacht with their own hangar. Airbus Helicopters presents the Airbus H160.

The new stylish helicopter that is equipped with 68 patented technologies carries up to 12 passengers with 160 knots to the destination.

President Guillaume Faury says:

“The H160 represents Airbus Helicopters’ strategy to provide the most efficient solutions for our customers, who serve, protect, save lives and safely carry passengers in the most demanding environments. We are driven by this mission because what is important to our customers is essential to us. The SuperConero, the Expedition, and the Dislopen have a similar DNA, but also very different features and peculiarities. Indeed, they are the result of a long and painstaking market analysis. We are deeply convinced that these new projects will confirm CRN’s great versatility”.

The Airbus H160 is not just stylish. The helicopter has also technical innovations like the biggest Fenestron shrouded tail rotor, Biplane Stabilizer to improve the aerodynamic during hover flight and less air speed. Another plus point is the Blue Edge rotor technology that gives a higher payload of 100 KG and makes the helicopter more silent.
