Plugboats Guide to Electric Boat Exhibitors at BOOT Dusseldorf 2024

The world’s largest indoor boat show – boot Düsseldorf, better known as simply ‘Boot’ – begins January 20 with at least 80 electric boat exhibitors, slightly higher than last year’s tally of about 75.

The 2023 edition was the first in-person event since 2020, so many exhibitors were keen to get out and meet personally with clients, customers and industry peers. Some e-boat exhibitors that were at the 2023 show are not coming this year, but it seems the new exhibitors, along with ones that didn’t make it last year but are in Düsseldorf this January, more than make up for them as the growth of electric boating continues.

Some selected highlights are below. We have done the best we can to cover everything, but there are probably some things left out. If you have something else that should be here, let us know in the Comments section at the bottom. The show is on until January 28.

Some notable electric debuts at this year’s Boot

Arcona Sailboats

Arcona was the first sailboat manufacturer to offer electric propulsion as the standard, not an option. That was on the Arcona 415. The company now offers Oceanvolt electric porpulaion available across its entire line and is showing the Arcona 50 European Yacht of the Year nominee along with the Arcona 435 Mk II ‘Greyhound of the Seas’ that won the 2019 Award in the Performance Cruiser category.

ASTender 340 Revolve – World Premier

The lightweight carbon fibre ASTender 340 Revolve is an excellent craft to be outfitted with an electric motor. ASTenders are high-performance boats, built on the highest standards in composite production: robust, durable and highly efficient.

AST is introducing the 340 Revolve with the 15hp electric engine from Mitek. The Revolve is the only sterndrive able to rotate on its own axis – another solution for those who are asking for electric jets or who have problems with dock or garage space, since the engine does not extend beyond the length and height of the overall boat while storage. The company says this engine is lighter, faster, has significantly more range and is a lot cheaper than available electric jets.

Contest 49CS

Contest is showing their eagerly awaited, first aft-cockpit model for the 50 foot market the company has served for decades with centre cockpit yachts. Now those who have been fans of the aft cockpit Contest 42CS layout now have a ‘bigger sister’ to enjoy. The all-new Contest 49CS is already in build and brings the comfort and reliability Contest is known for to the open aft cockpit sector.

The 49 CS use a Torqeedo Deep Blue system that combines the 50 kW Deep Blue sail propulsion with 40 lithium-ion batteries and fully integrated energy management on board. The system has hydroregenerating abilities and the boat also uses two Watt&Sea units in the hull and Solbian solar cells. The system also integrates a 20 kW DC  generator for long-distance travel.

eJet Cycle

JetCycle, is a French startup known for their innovative designs in the leisure marine sector. One of those designs is the eJet Cycle, a hydrofoiling personal watercraft propelled by the oldest energy source of all -human power. 

At Boot this year the company is displaying its new eJet Cycle, which combines pedal power with a durable battery providing up to three hours of autonomy.

The E JetCycle’s trimaran design provides assuring stability and makes the boat overall more user-friendly. The broad arms connecting the side hulls to the central hull also serve as swim platforms so users can easily climb back on from the water..

Nicolas Picard, the director of JetCycle, says “We were very proud to launch a world first two years ago with the JetCycle Max, but this model is less accessible for the average user as it requires power, cardio and balance. The E JetCycle is the perfect answer to this accessibility challenge”.

Elan Yachts

Elan Yachts is showcasing its Elan 6 and Elan Impression 43 at Boot, both of which have the option of Oceanvolt electric propulsion. The Elan 6 was a finalist in the electric sailboat category of this year’s Gussies Awards and the Elan Impression 43 is nominated in the European Yacht of the Year. The company is also giving a virtual tour of its new GT6 Explorer, which marks the first voyage for the company into a more off-shore, long-cruise focused yacht design.

ePropulsion launches new eLite 500 watt electric outboard..

The latest ePropulsion system – named the eLite – is the smallest to join the company’s growing portfolio. The 500 watt (.5 kW) eLite has been created for the tender and smaller boating market, and uses a direct-drive motor and advanced design propeller that delivers high efficiency with the near-silence of electric propulsion. 

Users can use the motor’s sport mode adds an additional 50% boost in power for challenging conditions or to hit the top speed of 5 miles per hour (8 km/h) for short periods. It has multiple charging options, including 110/220V AC, 12V DC and solar with the use of optional ePropulsion converters, it can be fully charged in around four hours.

“We are excited to start the year by introducing the eLite electric outboard motor, a game-changer in marine propulsion,” said Danny Tao, Co-founder and CEO of ePropulsion. “With its innovative features and commitment to sustainability, we believe the eLite will redefine the eco boating experience for enthusiasts worldwide and we are looking forward to showcasing it to visitors at this year’s show and beyond.”

Evoy – new digital configurator and OceanAir8 with Pascal AirHull

Evoy will be in a few places around Boot. At their own booth, but also at the booth of Nimbus and Alukin Boats. In their own booth they will be unveiling their new digital configurator that allows anyone to see which Evoy system will fit their needs.

Users can select one of the many boats now powered by Evoy, like the Gussies Award winning Axopar 25 or build their own system by selecting ‘design your system’ and choosing from the comapny’s inboards and outboards that deliver 120 to 400+ continuous hp. As you choose, criteria, the configurator filters compatible next steps in your design, from battery and charging options, to touch screen sizes.

At the Nimbus/Alukin Boats booth you can see the OceanAir8, which is powered by an Evoy Outboard Breeze 120+ hp motor. The boat showcases the AirHull of Pascal Technologies, in which a fan system in the bow blows air into a Pascal created space under the hull, creating a mini hovercraft effect with a 15cm cushion of air that reduces water resistance and drag. The hull technology can provide as much as 33% lower energy consumption and increase a boat’s range by as much as 50%.


World Premier of Frauscher X Porsche eFantom 850 Air

Boot 2024 is the site of the official World Premiere of the Frauscher x Porsche 850 Fantom Air. In October the two companies hosted sea trials on Italy’s Lake Garda in preparation for Boot. 

Speaking at that presentation, Detlev von Platen, Member of the Board of Management for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG, said “This boat is the result of a great collaboration between two passionate companies with a strong tradition and a high standard of innovation.”

Frauscher Porsche  unveiled on Lake Garda

“It is a real milestone in the electric boat industry,” added Frauscher Managing Director Stefan Frauscher. “The electric version of the Fantom Air is better than the version with an internal combustion engine in all driving characteristics, such as top speed, acceleration and handling – and at the same time locally emission-free.”

Honda – “presents design study for electric outboard motor

We reported last year that Honda had an electric outboard motor on display at Boot Düsseldorf, but it was behind a glass case and kind of hidden away amongst the gas burners. This year they have the model on full display and issued an announcement saying:

At Boot 2024 in Düsseldorf, Honda is presenting the design study of a small, lightweight electric outboard motor. The model can be viewed at the Honda exhibition stand. It is currently still a study with which Honda is testing the acceptance of the concept in the market. According to current plans, the power source for the electric outboard could be the mobile Honda power bank “Honda Mobile Power Pack e:
