(VIDEO) Steiner Lightstream 6.2, a new electric boat, elegant and performant13 August 2012
Steiner Nautic designs and builds boats – from motor boat to sail boat- since 1898 in Salzburg, Austria. So when they decided to offer an electric model, they did things properly!
Designed by Michael Hofbauer, the Lightstream 6.2 High Voltage is carbon, wood, leather and steel. Its structure is in carbon epoxy composites with a double-arched design offering less resistance to friction, as a result it weights 1350kg.
This 6.2m long and 2.3m wide day-boat is resolutely focused on leisure with a 120kW motor in peak (161hp) allowing a max speed of 60kph (32 knots), and easy water skiing. .. An ideal tender for wealthy yacht owner.
It receives a 42kWh Lithium Iron battery for 20 minutes of range at full speed and 6h at 10kph (5knots).
Depending on the power of the charging station, a stop from 2 to 8hours will provide a full charge.
Range in water skiing is around 40 minutes.
The brand does not announce the maximum number of passengers, however the front seats, those of the cockpit and back sundeck suggest that 6 people can be seated.
Competition? For waterskiing EPIC offers the 21SE and on the design side Frauscher the Alassio 650. You can see all the electric boats in our directory.
A big unkown still… The price of the LightStream, for information, the competition ranges from 48.000€ to 149.000€.
