ELECTRA, by Boundary Layer Technologies, is a fully electric, zero emissions hydrofoil passenger ferry. Through it’s unique flying hydrofoil design, it can travel twice the speed and twice the range of any other electric ferry in existence. This greatly increases the number of routes that can be serviced, and opens the door to a green zero emissions ferry future across the world. ELECTRA features twin electric motors and a hydrofoil system, which propel it at a stabilized cruise speed of 40 knots, resulting in a quiet, smooth and relaxing experience for the 150 passengers onboard the vessel.
