    Torqeedo , the German company says it has now delivered the 100,000th electric drive for the worldwide marine industry in 2020 as expected.



    Next to it, is Zin Boats Z2R runabout’s boat, shaped from 100% carbon fibre and custom-tuned prop powered by a Deep Blue 50i system. The 20′ Z2R reaches a top speed of 35 mph and has a range of 100 miles at cruising speed, says Torqeedo.

    For the solar-electric catamaran, Torqeedo specifies the Deep Blue Hybrid system to harvest solar energy and store it in the yacht’s 80 kWh lithium battery bank to then power the twin 50 kW inboard drives plus house loads like the galley, lighting and watermaker.

    High pollution rate of gasoline-powered combustion boat and rising fuel prices have shifted the priority of boat manufacturers to battery technology. Advancement in battery technology that offers longer run-time and higher speed is driving the demand for the Electric Boat market, worldwide. In addition, noteworthy advantages offered by Electric Boat such as noiseless, smokeless, less vibration and less engine maintenance than the combustion boat helped the market to grow considerably. In 2018, the global Electric Boat market was US$ 4.49 Bn and expected to reach US$ 12.32 Bn in 2027.

    In contradiction to the above-mentioned specifics, Electric Boat failed to become superior to combustion boats. Factors such as limited range or runtime of Electric Boat, longer time to charge a battery and high cost of Electric Boat compare to combustion boats expected to obstruct the market growth. Overall, the global Electric Boat market expected to grow with a CAGR of 11.9% from 2019 to 2027.
