The Optima Electric is the first in an innovative range of high-quality electric cruising boats for Optima Projects which supports a unique ultra-efficient low-resistance hull form, for All-day cruising in comfort and silence under battery power. The Optima Electric is capable of extended ranges of over 100 miles and will be self-sufficient for weeks away from shore-power using a combination of integrated solar PV charging, diesel generator or hydrogen fuel cell.

David Kendal’s concept for an innovative platform provides the efficiency and stability of a multi-hull but within the beam of a monohull. This results in levels of efficiency, comfort and seakeeping not previously seen in mono-hull designs, whilst maintaining the practicalities & berthing possibilities of a monohull.
