dasher: the world’s first fully electric luxury yacht by michael peters for hinckley.
the future is here. since 1928, hinckley has been leading the way in the design of beautiful, highly innovative and timeless yachts. in the spirit of our legacy of innovation, we are excited to announce dasher, the world’s first fully electric luxury yacht. reservations now being accepted for delivery in summer 2018. ~ hinckley yachts
power yachts are considered the biggest environmental offenders. noisy. smelly. fuel guzzlers. but more efficient power and lighter constructed watercraft are appearing more and more. dasher now appears to be a world’s first fully electric in a self-defined category of luxury yachts: ultra-minimal, featuring no roof, no galley, no bunks, no head! but it is loaded with hinckley’s aesthetic sensibilities, craftsmanship, technology, 3d-printed titanium hardware, and price. we’re told something north of $500K usd. DA applauds the vision to venture into zero emission ready-for-production water vehicles.
