Elwood 550e HT
Around a year ago I started the Elwood project from scratch, with just a vision and desire of a wooden classic electric boat in my mind. From the very beginning I decided to cooperate with Oceanvolt to equip my beautiful unique handcrafted boats with state of the art electric powertrains.
Now after the first year of activity we have a beautiful, silent and fully functional prototype of our smallest model, Elwood 550e HT, which is a timeless designed hardtop boat with 5,5 m length overall and 1,5 m beam, equipped with Oceanvolt AX8 and 11,4 kWh battery bank.
During the entire project we have had a great help and partnership from Oceanvolt and we are happy to continue cooperation. We are really looking forward to build also the bigger Elwood models, 650e and 750e, equipped with Oceanvolt AXC series watercooled powertrain. – Pasi Virnes, CEO Elwood Boats
Each Elwood boat is made to order and handcrafted in Kuopio, Finland.
Less energy, more nature and just the right pace. Electric power eliminates the distractions of traditional motor boating and the wooden frame invites nostalgic travel.
