How fast does an electric workboat travel?

The maximum speed of our electric workboats is about 15 km/h relative to the water. A number of factors can affect the speed of the boat, including the weight of people or materials that you are carrying on board. This means that our electric workboats are more suited to smaller bodies of water. None of our electric motor boats require a sailing licence, although there may be regulations on use in some locations. With many years of experience throughout the Netherlands, we know the regulations in almost all areas. Different rules apply when sailing with an electric motor boat on, for example, major rivers when compared to small waterways.

For how long can I sail an electric boat?

The length of time you can sail for depends on its cruising speed and the capacity of the battery. The faster you travel, the more energy the electric motor will consume. Our electric workboats are built to sail for a single eight-hour working day at a speed of around ten kilometres per hour. This assumes that sailing will not be continuous.

The benefits of an electric workboat

Electric sailing has its benefits:

  • No CO2 emissions: you can sail cleanly without polluting the environment
  • No motor noise and therefore silent sailing
  • Simple technology with low maintenance
  • Cheap sailing because electricity is cheaper than liquid fuel

Electric sailing also has its drawbacks:

  • Limited range
  • Depends on charging points (more and more ports have these available)

Benefits of electric boats in tenders

The government has set clear targets when it comes to CO2 emissions from construction projects. Contractors gain an advantage if they can commit to lower CO2 emissions. Renting an electric boat is, therefore, a logical choice. Renting an electric workboat for marine construction definitely has benefits in tenders.

Electric sailing is compulsory in some cases

On some bodies of water in the Netherlands, electric sailing is compulsory or soon will be. This includes areas in which drinking water is extracted, nature reserves or tourist locations such as Giethoorn. Amsterdam also has plans to make electric sailing compulsory.
