X Shore is launching a smaller, more affordable electric boat


X Shore is launching a new, more affordable electric boat that’s built using the same smart technology, eco-friendly methods and clean Scandinavian design as the award-winning Eelex 8000, and is the first new product from the Swedish shipyard since the company’s acquisition of Kreisel Electric batteries back in February.

The new, smaller X Shore 1 is set to hit the market at a much more attractive price of $139,000, which the brand believes will spark even more interest in e-boats.

“In order to bring electric boats to the widest possible audience, it is imperative that we bring a range of models and options to market to meet the diverse needs and desires of the global boating community,” says CEO Jenny Case. “The important thing is that -Shore 1 is coming to market at an extremely low price because we need to make electric boats competitive with fossil fuel boats to accelerate the transition. Equally important, with the launch of the 1, X Shore hopes to inspire a new generation of boat owners and show them that electric boats are not only the future, but the present.”

The new “1” costs about a third of the price of some competitors’ high-performance electric boats“while not compromising performance or operational capabilities,” according to a press release.
