Four Electric Tenders for Your Superyacht

Posted August 28, 2021 in Brokerage & New Build by Miriam Cain

As the superyacht industry navigates its way into an environmentally-savvy future, we look at the electric tenders skimming the horizon.

DUTCHCRAFT DC25 electric superyacht tender running at sunset


Probably the most versatile of the electric tenders available, the fully electric, carbon fiber DutchCraft DC25 features a modular deck design allowing for a range of uses. Whether transporting provisions, shuttling guests (capacity 12), carrying large equipment or serving as a dive boat or sportfisher, it really is an all-rounder. Additionally, the bow has a hinged door, allowing guests to walk directly onto the beach when going ashore to dine.

Length 26.3ft (8m)
Top speed 30 knots
Cruising speed 6 knots
Range 31 nautical miles at 6 knots
CANDELA C-7 electric hydro-foiling tender running


Made from 100% carbon fiber, the Candela C-7 electric hydro-foiling tender boasts a superior range and speeds of up to 30 knots. Skimming on the surface, the hydrofoil produces no wake, leaving the marine life in peace, and is so quiet it doesn’t disturb others in or on the water.

Length 25ft (7.7m)
Top speed 30 knots
Cruising speed 22 knots
Range 50 nautical miles at 22 knots

Lanéva Vesper 001

A day boat for the superyacht, the Lanéva Vesper 001 electric tender is constructed using sustainable plywood, natural linen fibers, natural cork and recyclable leatherette. Lanéva Boats also works with L’APER (Association pour la Plaisance Eco-Responsable) to ensure sustainable methods of disposing and recycling of all used batteries.

Length 26ft (7.9m)
Top speed 30 knots
Cruising speed 15 knots
Range 40 nautical miles at 20 knots

X SHORE EELEX 8000 tender running


Blending with nature, the Eelex 8000 is built using low impact materials with a hull made out of flax fabric and recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET) with a cork deck. Aside from its serious electric eco-credentials, the boat’s software can be used to operate a built-in Sea Lab, which collects environmental data from the local waters, including PH and oxygen levels.

Length 26.2ft (8m)
Top speed 35 knots
Cruising speed 24 knots
Range 100 nautical miles at 5 to 7 knots
