After two years of market research, design, and product development, Netherlands-based Edorado Marine has revealed its new zero-emission powerboat. The Edorado 7S uses a unique hydrofoil design that allows it to ride above the water with very low drag, which increases maximum speed and range.
Tom Speer, who is also part of America’s Cup Team Oracle, was responsible for the hydrodynamic design. “The hydrofoil design minimizes the required power up to 40 knots. It is stable in pitch, heave, and roll, so the boat’s safety doesn’t depend on an active control system, which would be complex, redundant, and expensive,” says Speer.
“The Edorado team has taken a unique and innovative approach to developing a superior high-performance electric sport boat. Applying advanced technologies and clever design has produced a fast electric sport boat that finally delivers the performance the market demands,” adds Edorado’s US partner Scott Ruck.
Edorado is currently taking preorders for the 7S and preparing for the construction of the first production series.
