Since 1928, Hinckley has been at the forefront of designing highly innovative and timeless yachts. Now Hinckley Yachts announces the birth of Dasher, which it claims to be the world’s first fully electric luxury yacht. Reservations now being accepted for delivery in Summer 2018.

Designed from the ground up for fully electric propulsion, Dasher achieves a new standard of excellence with modern styling paired with super lightweight construction. From her carbon-epoxy composite hull, to her hand-painted, lightweight Artisanal Teak, every ounce of weight has been shaved and every curve sculpted.

Arriving not with a roar, but with the silent Whisper Drive propulsion system powered by dual BMW i3 lithium ion batteries, the shape of the future is also the sound of silence. With zero emissions and zero time lost travelling to the pump and back, it’s not what’s been added to Dasher but whats been removed that will intrigue most.

Hinckley Yachts says that Dasher is the lightest it has ever created. With a carbon-epoxy composite hull and carbon stringers, Dasher is light and sleek, bringing together performance and propulsion like never before.

BMW i3 lithium ion batteries have been designed with a prismatic cell design for efficient cooling and temperature distribution with compact size and superior shock resistance.

And say goodbye to the tank — and all that comes with it. Dasher accepts dual 50amp charging cables so it can be charged twice as fast as the most popular plug-in electric cars. Dasher gains a full charge in under 4 hours with dual 50 amp charging.
