Nordic boatbuilder Axopar has reinforced its position as an industry forerunner and innovator by investing a 10% stake into Evoy, the pioneering Norwegian manufacturer of fully electric motor solutions for leisure and commercial marine use.
Working together, Axopar will also offer Evoy its extensive dealership network, valuable expertise in boatbuilding and significant financial support with future orders valued at over one million euros to be delivered in 2023 alone.
Both companies are united in their aim to ensure straightforward and streamlined turnkey solutions as well as accelerating the adoption of electric technology to make it as accessible as possible to all.
Following the extremely well-received proof of concept of the Axopar 25 Electric prototype, these two Nordic innovators are together pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in electric leisure boating, inviting investors and other boat brands to join in the pursuit of a cleaner and a more sustainable future.
Jan-Erik Viitala, Founding Partner, Axopar Boats, says: “On this journey Evoy has proven to be a perfect match for Axopar. We believe that electrification will grow in stages and we will be together in the forefront of development.”
Leif A. Stavøstrand, Evoy’s CEO, added, “We are thrilled to welcome Axopar as a strategic investor, bringing not only significant investments, but also a great network and validation of Evoy.”
