Here’s your quick guide to all of the electric boats exhibitors at the Boot Dusseldorf show that starts Saturday January 18 and runs until Sunday January 26.
The largest boat show in the world, Dusseldorf has almost 2,000 exhibitors from more than 60 countries spread out over 220,00 square metres / 2,350,000 square feet…so we thought we would try to narrow things down for you if you’re looking for electric boat items 🙂
Before you get to the Directory, you might want to check out the electric boats making news with their debuts and unveilings at Dusseldorf this year.
Electric Düsseldorf Debuts:
The DutchCraft 25, an 8 metre carbon fibre tender, is another stunning new electric boat making its debut at Dusseldorf 2020 next week. After its unveiling on Sunday (28 Jan), it can be seen at the DutchCraft area in Hall 01 – Stand C37.
The SolarImpact 24m 78 ft yacht can sail around the world on solar power. It turned many heads at Dusseldorf last year and this article gives an update and pictures of their V2.0 which will be at this year’s show.
Dusseldorf Boat Show will host the world premiere and unveiling of a new electric boat eLimo from Q-Yachts, a pioneering e-boat manufacturer. (See a life-size 1:1 mock-up and virtual tour of the eLimo at Q-Yachts’ Hall Stand)
More electric boats are making dramatic debuts at Boot Duesseldorf 2020, like Domani’s E32 chaseboats which can go for 100 nautical miles (185 kms) on a single charge, silently cruising at a speed of 8 knots for up to 12 hours.
The world’s fastest production e-boat, the SAY 29E runabout by SAY Carbon and powered by a 360 kiloWatt electric motor, will be on display – and for sale – at the Düesseldorf Boat Show January 18 to 26.

Our mission is production of quality boats with smooth cruising performances and great comfort.
What makes us stand out is attention to details, precision, and smart solutions.
We care about nature. Our electric propulsion boats are eco-friendly and help to protect our precious nature.
All of our clients leave their signature on our boats. We customize, we modify, we diversify, ultimately, we make a perfect boat for you.
We are a young dynamic company in Schleswig Holstein and have set ourselves the goal to provide sustainable and clean propulsion technology for boats. Environmentally friendly and water-saving solutions for global environmental protection are very important to us.
That is why we have founded this new company to devote ourselves to this endeavor with full force.
High quality and sustainable electric motors for boats and ships, save and clean energy solutions – this is what the name of Aquamot stands for. Whether electric boat drives or the appropriate components, at Aquamot you will get unmatched power and efficiency for leisure driver and commercial use from a single source.
What started over 95 years with a passion for traditional boat-building and developed continuously over four generations, has now become the epitome of high performance classic mahogany boats. The Boesch water crafts are characterized by a synthesis of form and function and strongly prove that there are still things that are perfect.
Achieving the impossible. We are in the midst of creating something completely new. An all-electric hydrofoil speed boat with a range of close to 3 hours at 25 knots. Add to that an almost silent ride. And a hull that makes no slamming in waves. Probably a revolution.
We achieve this by combining hydrofoils for low water resistance with modern lightweight materials and the most advanced battery technology.

Caroute Brushless Boat Trolling motor equip an inner motor IC control board which is cooling itself down by water. Optimized IC control program and brushless technology contribute to high efficiency, which means, to provide same thrust and output power, Caroute motor consumes less input power than competitors’ electric motors.
That is why Caroute 80lb motor only requires 12v battery and 160lb motor only requires 24v battery. Caroute motor can be smaller, more light and less battery consumption.
Get it, Enjoy your Green life.

Complete System. Every E-TECH drive system is a complete system and the set contains everything to install a ready-to-go electric drive system in your boat.
Battery Charging. E-TECH electric drives (4kWatt and higher) are strong generators as well. In a sailing boat under sail or in a hybrid set-up the turning E-TECH engine can charge the batteries.
Thrust Bearing. Every E-TECH engine has a double acting build-in thrust bearing. The axial thrust from the propeller is guided efficiently and without resistance to the engine casing!
