New European speed record by Abel Yachts

Croatian shipyard Abel Yachts has recently set a new European speed record by their LightWave Ampere 5.5 metre fully fitted out yacht tender. Witnessed and certified by the Croatian Register of Shipping, the new record for Unlimited Electric Runabout is now set at 32.9 knots.

Constructed almost entirely from carbon pre-preg, the all-electric Ampere weighs in at 1,020kg. The power comes from an emission free 100-kilowatt UQM 140 HP motor fed by a 50 kwh lithium ion battery pack. The Ampere has a range of 20 nm at full power, 40 nm at 20 knots, and over 80nm at 6 knots.

The Ampere 5.5 is able to carry two passengers on board, and is currently ready to be delivered.
