Dordrecht, The Netherlands November 09, 2023:
• Ready-made platform
• Unique opportunity for boat builders and OEM’s
• USP’s & Specifications
Edorado, a pioneering force in electric hydrofoil powerboats, has unveiled an innovative offering that is set to revolutionize the marine industry. The company proudly announces the global availability of its electric hydrofoil system. This revolutionary technology, born from the success of the 8S, is now accessible for tender builders and boat manufacturers worldwide.
Edorado has developed a ready-made platform that allows customers to design their own boats, leveraging the advanced technology perfected in the 8S.
The 8S, built on the proven 8-meter platform, stands as a testament to years of dedicated research and development by Edorado. The company is now democratizing this technology by making it available as a platform for the creation of customized vessels.
“In our pursuit of sustainability and making the maritime industry greener, we are thrilled to announce the global availability of our hydrofoil electric system for tender builders and boat manufacturers,” said Godert van Hardenbroek, Founder & CEO at Edorado. “Our ready-made platform represents a unique opportunity for customers to unleash their creativity and design their own boats. This platform simplifies the design process and ensures compliance with our established parameters to maintain ideal weight-to-size ratios.”
Edorado’s pioneering approach deviates from the conventional method of development collaboration. Instead, the company empowers customers by offering a pre-defined platform on which they can work with their naval architects. Edorado acts as a support system, guiding customers through the design process to ensure adherence to the established framework.
The platform is designed to cater to a multitude of marine industry segments.
The hydrofoil electric platform with integrated retraction offers a flat floor that opens up new possibilities for customization. Boat builders and manufacturers can design and engineer their own unique watercrafts, tailored to their specific needs and preferences. This flexibility empowers them to create vessels that are as unique as the customers they serve.
To showcase their platform, Edorado will present their hydrofoil electric system for the first time at METSTRADE 2023, the world’s premier trade fair for maritime equipment, materials, and systems, to be held from November 15-17 in Amsterdam. The company invites naval architects and boat builders to visit their stand to explore the technology and engage in discussions about potential collaborations.
