Pittman Award for an electric revolution

The electric pod drive from Hanse’s exclusive partner Torqeedo has been awarded with the Pittman Award 2017 by the “Sail” magazine.

The 4 kw electric motor accelerates the Hanse 315 to 6.1 knots and has a range of around 30 nautical miles at half speed.

The “Sail” magazine argues as follows: “…the boatbuilder’s 315 sloop makes the most of this compact and innovative technology by incorporating a drive unit directly in the trailing edge of a Jefa rudder. The result,…,is exceptional maneuverability. - a true godsend for those who keep their boats in crowded marinas”.

The first Hanse 315 Emotion Rudder Drive ordered by a customer will leave the shipyard in March and will be the first Hanse 315 with a preinstalled generator. The generator will extend the range of the electric boat as well as charge the service batteries.
