DutchCraft premiered its second all-electric, carbon fiber design, the 25-foot DC25, at Boot Düsseldorf 2020.
The DC25 can run at 32 knots for 75 minutes or cruise along for six hours at 6 knots. DutchCraft already builds the 56-foot DC56. According to DutchCraft, the boats can be used as yacht tenders or as multipurpose vessels.
The DC25 has a modular deck design that allows it to quickly change over from yacht tender to dive boat, sportfisher, toy carrier, family cruiser or ski boat. It also features a hinged bow door design that allows passengers to walk onto the beach without getting wet.
DutchCraft is the sister company of Zeelander Yachts. Both companies were founded by Dutchman Sietse Koopmans, an experienced yachtsman who logged over 100,000 nautical miles cruising to 46 countries around the world on his explorer superyacht. By his own admission, Koopmans is obsessed with sound dampening. Electric propulsion fits right in with his desire to boat while enjoying the sea in peace.
“We believe electric propulsion will be key in a future that cares about ocean preservation,” said Floris Koopmans, DutchCraft’s marketing coordinator. “We are committed to investing in this positive movement, and the technology that we have developed for the DC25 is a step in the right direction.”
