Nova Luxe Yachts Launches First E-Boat

Nova Luxe Yachts recently launched its first boat, the all-electric Nova Luxe 44 luxury power catamaran, and conducted sea trials at the Westshore Yacht Club in Tampa, Fla.

Built using an Aquila hull, the Nova Luxe 44 is powered by 50 kW 1400 rpm Torqeedo Deep Blue motors matched with high-capacity BMW i3 lithium batteries, a rooftop solar array and small backup generator. In a four-hour run, the vessel cruised at 6 knots against a light breeze and current using only 25 kW of energy per hour.

“The boat demonstrates that enjoying the many advantages of electric power—clean, silent, green, odor-free and incredibly efficient—doesn’t mean sacrificing speed, thrust and power.” said Marc Hawxhurst, Nova Luxe Yachts president.

As an officially licensed Torqeedo reseller, Nova Luxe Yachts functions as the project manager in converting 35′ to 50′ power catamarans to all-electric. It takes Aspen Power, Bavaria, Fountaine Pajot, Havana, Leopard Catamarans and Maine Cat catamarans and develops the propulsion and energy systems.
