The electrification of vehicles does not always have to go hand in hand with cars; there are also some other electrified vehicles. A good example of it is DC25, a fully electric carbon fiber tender that leaves aside the cost of fuel while being environmentally friendly.
Designed by the Dutch manufacturer DutchCraft, this innovative electric boat comes with a modular deck design, which has many possible uses. Its fully modular design ensures that it will be quick and easy to choose between a diving, fishing, support boat, or even a cruise ship.
DC25 depends on electric propulsion of about 100 kW powered by a battery pack undercover between 89 and 134 kWh. It is able to navigate at a top speed of 32 knots (59 km/h) for up to 75 minutes or cruise lazily at 6 knots (11 km/h) for up to six hours. The hull is made of carbon fiber and will help us get the most juice possible from the boat’s battery.
The e-boat can carry up to 12 passengers, and depending on the furniture you choose for the deck; you can accommodate more people. Again, its modular design is its very great asset. Behind the central console, furniture and equipment can quickly be moved thanks to the two bridge rails. You can configure the roof as you want using these rails; add furniture to set up a party, to accommodate guests, to store objects and transport them, and so on.
For fans of scuba diving, the DC25 can accommodate up to 8 diving equipment, a back-to-back seat, and sufficient storage space for two seabobs. The 42L tank (optional) should provide sufficient water for showers and equipment cleaning.
Well, the boat is not as cheap as expected. The basic DC25 starts at about €275,000, while the limousine version, which is currently in development, will cost much more. It will serve as a luxury shuttle providing increased protection from the elements.
