Clarification of Commercial Passenger Electric Boats

This category is to award electric boats that have been designed specifically to take paying passengers from one location to another such as ferries and watertaxis. Boats designed for recreational use that may be used as tenders should be nominated in the appropriate length category above, as should boats that are designed for recreational use but are in use for rental or charter purposes.

The general criteria for Production Boats apply to this category.

Criteria for DIY /Customized Electric Boat

  • ‘One-off’ boats that have been specifically built or re/retrofitted for electric propulsion. Production boats customized, altered or fitted to the purchasing client’s desires are Production Boats.
  • Main propulsion must be electric
  • No fossil fuel propulsion or generation

Criteria for Electric Sailboats

  • Main propulsion wind/sail
  • Secondary propulsion all electric
  • Sailing boats with an all-electric drive train that use fossil fuel to generate electricity but not to propel the boat are eligible
