TRADITIONAL
POWERBOATS ARE
OUTRAGEOUS

Times are changing

While traditional powerboats heavily pollute the air and water around them, destroying what they are designed to enjoy in the first place, the all electric 8S offers premium design, power and speed, but with none of the oil, emissions, wake or noise.

LOW DRAG
HYDROFOILS

The laws of physics

Applying hydrofoils at high speed reduces the drag at least 60% compared to traditional planing hulls. It is clear that for speed on the water with electric propulsion, hydrofoils are a must.

ENABLING
TECHNOLOGIES

Next generation powerboat

Three technologies are coming together to turn the Edorado 8S into a boat suitable for consumers: Fully submerged hydrofoil technology developed in the 60’s results in the most efficient and stable flight possible. The rise of electric vehicles provides high energy density batteries and affordable power electronics. And finally, emergence of accurate digital motion sensors enable state of the art stability control.

DEVELOPMENT

The algorithm

The heart of the Edorado 8S is the proprietary Automatic Control System. Fully submerged hydrofoils are intrinsically unstable. That is why the electronics and algorithms are designed for ultra low latency, resulting in super stable flight.

COLLISION
IMPACT SAFETY
SYSTEM

Encountering
floating debris

People are concerned about hydrofoils colliding with floating debris. The Patented Edorado Collision Impact Safety System (CISS) allows for a controlled release of the bow strut resulting in a smooth landing. Passenger safety first.

FULLY
INTEGRATED
RETRACTION

Electric all the way

Retracting the hydrofoils protects them during mooring and trailering. The Edorado 8S is equipped with an elegantly integrated retraction system that is controlled via the digital user interface. Since this system is also all electric there is no chance of hydraulic oil spilling in the water.

TWIN DRIVE
PROPULSION

Easy manouvrability

The two propellers of the ‘twin drive’ system provide unparalleled control and allows for turning in place, making navigating harbours child’s play. Additional benefit is dual redundancy providing increased safety when out on the water.

Connected
Boat

Digital architecture

The Edorado 8S is an all-electric and digitally connected boat. From the Edorado app you can see, for example, the state of charge. Or you can send the digital key to your friends so they can take the boat for a spin. The system can be monitored remotely and is capable of over the air updates with improvements to performance and the user experience.
