The Q30 all-electric, minimalist and elegant day cruiser from Q Yachts in Finland will make its U.S. debut at the Palm Beach show in March.
The Q30 is 30’ 7” long with a beam of 7’ 3” and it’s powered by twin Torqeedo 10kW sailpods and a Torqeedo 30-kWh lithium battery. It has a maximum range of 60 nm; at a cruising speed of 9 knots the range is 42 nm; at its top speed of 14 knots the range is 21 nm. An optional second battery can extend the range.
The boat can be charged anywhere with a standard 230-volt plug, and it has an optional Torqeedo fast charger. Optional power is an Oceanvolt AXC20 electric motor with 20KW continuous power.
The company, which was started in Helsinki, says, “The fundamental idea of Q Yachts is to develop high-end electric boats that are easy to own and effortless to use.” They are silent and sustainable.
The energy-efficient hull is fiberglass and foam-cored. The Q30 has a cabin with a V-berth for two below, a fridge, water and an electric toilet. Read more:
