Electric X Shore 1 by X Shore
Cruising with electric X Shore 1 by Swedish electric boat manufacturer X Shore doubles as an unhurried sea exploration or wandering as the day-or-night vessel offers an open transom with a built-in swim platform, mesh rail furniture option with central passage, a generous deck for sunbathing and leisure, integrated navigation lights in bow rail, a cantilevered roof, a retractable sun awning and water-sport capabilities in one water vehicle. Cruisers may select between a top-enclosed watercraft or an open-space one where no roof blocks the scenic views of the sea landscape. The 21-feet boat can run from 37 kilometers per hour – up to 55 km for top speed – through its 125 kW electric motor and has a range of 50 nautical miles.

Spacious deck in cork design with moveable cushions
Drawing from the clean, minimalistic, and Scandinavian-inspired design, X Shore 1 by X Shore sources cork as its primary material, letting it carpet the deck and the vessel’s front to immediately imply a slow lifestyle-based exterior. The company states that the forward cabin has room for a family of four to sleep while still having ample space for storage. A dedicated space for a cooler and porta potty has also been set aside.
Cushions can be added to the generous corked sun deck to make sunbathing more comfortable, and having such a space separates the sunbathing area from the socializing space of the interior. Looking at the exterior of X Shore 1, cruisers can see the minimalist hull with the stepped sheer line, the raised freeboard, and the natural colors permeating the boat’s aesthetics in Sandy, Moss, and Coffee.

Smart technology for anti-theft
Electric and tech-wise, X Shore states that its X Shore 1’s 63 kWh lithium-ion battery is equipped with a fast-charging capacity that reaches 80% in 50 minutes while a three-phase socket charger found in most marinas nowadays takes around 3 hours. The electric motor allows the drivetrain to kick off with a top speed of 30 knots in seconds. Smart technology is also in mind as X Shore 1 provides an intuitive user interface, range estimate, route planning, and man-overboard safety feature. The X Shore app also acts as a remote key and lets the cruisers know their boat’s exact location using geofence with alerts, barring the boat from theft.
