X Shore Launches Smaller, More Accessible Electric Boat

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

The new, smaller X Shore 1 is set to enter the market wearing a much more attractive $139,000 price tag, which the brand believes will generate even more interest in e-boating.

“In order to bring electric boating to the largest possible audience, it is essential we bring to market a range of models and options to satisfy the different needs and desires of the global boating community,” says CEO, Jenny Keisu. “Crucially, the  -Shore 1 enters the market at a remarkably low price point, as we must make electric boating competitive with fossil-fuel boats to speed up the transition. Just as importantly, by launching the 1, X Shore is hoping to encourage a new generation of boat owners, and show them that electric boating is not just the future, but the present.”

The new “1” is priced to be about a third of the price of some competitors’ high-performance electric boat offerings, “whilst not compromising on performance or operational capabilities,” according to the press release.

The 1 will be built at the company’s existing boatyard in Nyköping, Sweden, and will be available in two configurations: Top (at top) and Open (above). Initial deliveries to customers in the second quarter of 2023, and can be ordered via selected partners and on the company’s website.
