“I’m really enthusiastic about Oceanvolt. Maximum convenience, soundless, totally clean, no fuel spills, just plug in, immediately ready to use, powerful, yet very smooth to adjust the speed, elegant & almost invisible.” – Felix Maire, owner of the electric H-boat, Switzerland
The H-Boat is a one-design keelboat designed by Finnish Hans Groop in 1967, with some minor modifications by Paul Elvstrøm in 1971. The boat gained international status in 1977. Since 1967 over 5000 hulls have been made, making it one of the most popular yacht classes in the world. This particular H-boat has been fitted with a 8.6kW Oceanvolt electric sail drive motor & 7 kWh Valence Lithium battery pack.
