What is the next step if I am interested in a design or build?
— Contact us today and we will get the ball rolling. We want to be able to get you on our build schedule ASAP so you can be out ending the water.
What is the range on the Elektra model?
— The range will depend on what battery setup is installed the boat and what conditions the boat is operated under. It would be expected that a boat with two Li-Ion batteries would be able to cruise for 6-8 hours. The hull is designed to operate efficiently below displacement speeds. Wattage use rises dramatically when attempting to operate in the range of speed near a hull’s maximum displacement speed and will quickly deplete the battery. The Torqeedo control includes a computer that continuously updates a display of the calculated range using GPS and battery condition for the operators convenience and safety. Like any energy system with limited available “juice”, faster consumption results in lower range. You can contact us for more information.
How fast does the Elektra Six-2 go?
— The Elektra Six-2’s optimal cruising speed is 5 mph. This model will go faster but at that point you are using an inefficient amount of power and your range is decreasing quickly. The hull is also a displacement hull. Unlike a deep V or a planing hull, a displacement hull is made to cut through the water instead of get on top of.
What is the custom design rate?
— The 2015 custom design rate is $97 per hour. We do have base models that can be easily modified to keep down the design costs.
