The design challenge
Combustion engine design is locking the potential of space usage on boats. Outboards are ugly and the whole stern goes to waste. Inboards are big and most often require a stepped deck design with fixed layouts. The market is flooded with rigid designs, that require you to buy a full package, all at once, with take-it or leave-it attitude, and very little personalization. Every customization, upgrade or update is difficult, costly and may lead to questionable results: aesthetics, quality, durability, safety, time of execution, available choice, second-hand price, and resale. Furthermore, fuel motors require you to carry flammable liquids on board, that can be a cause of spillage, fumes, fire and even, explosion. These motors are so loud, that most of the cruising pleasure is greatly severed, as well as our nature, with the use of fossil fuels and CO2 emissions. All these factors made us wonder: is it possible to make boating more accessible, safe, sustainable, and fun?
In order to change the game and tackle the above-mentioned challenges, we decided to create a modular watercraft platform, with electric propulsion. Electric motors are smaller, lighter, and quieter. They consist of fewer moving parts, meaning they are more durable and are easier to maintain, repair, replace, or recycle. They can use energy from multiple sources and have no exhaust emissions. By integrating the motor and the electronics in the heart of the platform, we have achieved unprecedented design possibilities: an 97 sq. ft unobstructed flat deck on a 19 foot hull. As for the hull design, we’ve looked at 1000s of boats and opted for a semi-displacement body, as the best compromise between safety, comfort, and performance. As for everything else, we developed a flexible modular system and intuitive online configurator with which our customers have the complete freedom to create a perfect custom electric boat for any purpose.
LOA (Length Over All):
19 ft / 580 cm
7 feet 2 inches / 230 cm
1 foot 3 inches / 40 cm
1150 lbs / 550 kg (without electronics)
Deck surface area:
97 ft2 / 9 m2
Fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP)
4-10 crew (depending on configuration)
Class C (Bays, lakes, rivers)
Proven by decades of application, FRP composites are completely recyclable and have no adverse effects on the marine ecosystem.
Core principle of the project is achieving unprecedented levels of customisation possibilities with one universal and modular hull.
Although initially developed for the military, today FRP is used as a substitute for wood and steel across all levels of maritime applications.
A single structure that is light, speedy, strong, watertight, durable, and corrosion-free makes for a great solution, that will last for generations.
Smart boat platform
Zero carbon footprint
Since SAVVY boats do not use a combustion engine, there are no exhaust emissions like CO2 and other harmful chemical by-products. Just renewable energy and clean future on the horizon.
Enjoy the best of sailing with the best of motor-boating: a silent ride in full comfort. The propulsion is so quiet, you can actually have a conversation in your normal voice, while planing at full speed.
Electric motors have fewer moving parts compared to combustion motors, meaning they are less prone to faults and malfunction. They are also smaller, lighter, easier to repair, and require no oil change.

Low taxes & fares
Switching to electric propulsion is not only great for the environment, but for your finances as well. With so many government incentives and support, overall fares and taxes for owning an electric vehicle are significantly lower.
The electric motor is 100% recyclable since the majority of its components are made from metal. Furthermore, we ensure that all the materials we use, from hull to decking, are environmentally friendly, complying with the latest regulations.
Go to places other cannot and get access to national parks and reserves thanks to the magic of electric propulsion. With zero-carbon emissions and silent drive, you can spend your time in the nature to the fullest, without disturbing the environment.
SAVVY’s iconic design is inspired by the great white shark, exploration and the timeless classics. The hull incorporates clean, straight, and functional lines, allowing maximum space usage with sleek, never-ageing style.
The water-level open stern sets the new standard in accessibility, pleasure and functionality. Whether it is used for swimming, fishing or transportation, SAVVY boat’s simple and elegant stern is up to the task.
After moulding and glueing, the FRP layers are vacuum-compressed at an incredible 10,000 kg/m2, in order to achieve premium-grade integrity of the hull, get rid of remaining air pockets, and shred an amazing 30% of the weight.
Axe-like bow cuts deep through the waves, while the mellow stern allows better control, stability and panning properties. Optimum balance between performance and comfort.
To make sure your SAVVY electric boat has the protection it deserves we’ve designed an 360º replaceable fenders system that gently follows the boat’s perimeter. Onyx Black fenders come as standard, with the optional rubber, pillow, and rope versions.
Completely customise your SAVVY boat’s appearance with any Pantone colour, or select from our range of blends that are inspired by nature, elegance and timeless beauty.
