Hinckley’s new 28 ½’ Dasher model is the world’s first fully electric luxury yacht.

Designed for fully electric propulsion, Dasher sports a super-light, carbon-epoxy composite hull designed by Michael Peters to deliver high performance and handling, along with a shallow draft. Titanium hardware and console details are 3D-printed to achieve elegant shapes and a level of precision unavailable with typical construction methods.

Propulsion is provided by twin 80-hp electric motors running off dual BMW i3 lithium-ion batteries. Quiet operation, zero emissions and no trips to the fuel dock are just a few of Dasher’s benefits.

The boat accepts dual 50 amp charging cables, standard on most docks, allowing it to charge twice as fast (under 4 hours) as the most popular plug-in electric cars.  Standard cruise is 10 mph, with a fast cruise of 18-27 mph. Range is 40 miles at standard cruise.

Additionally, Dasher’s modern, open layout allows for numerous possible configurations, with a console that allows the captain to join the party thanks to a retractable windshield. Touch-screen helm control makes navigating simple. Meanwhile, the open transom allows for a direct connection with the water, as well as easy access.

Dasher also marks Hinckley’s debut of Artisanal Teak, a lightweight, hand-painted epoxy composite that offers a varnished look without the weight or maintenance costs of traditional teak.
