• Dasher achieves a new standard of excellence with modern styling paired with super lightweight construction.
  • Every ounce of weight has been shaved and every curve sculpted.
  • Dasher is the lightest Hinckley Yacht ever created.

The World’s First Fully Electric Luxury Motor Yacht.

The future is here. Since 1928, Hinckley has been leading the way in the design of beautiful, highly innovative and timeless yachts. In the spirit of our legacy of innovation, we are excited to announce Dasher, the world’s first fully electric luxury yacht. Reservations now being accepted for delivery in Summer 2018.

Designed from the ground up for fully electric propulsion, Dasher achieves a new standard of excellence with modern styling paired with super lightweight construction. From her carbon-epoxy composite hull, to her handpainted, lightweight Artisanal Teak, every ounce of weight has been shaved and every curve sculpted.

Arriving not with a roar, but with our silent Whisper Drive propulsion system powered by dual BMW i3 lithium ion batteries, the shape of the future is also the sound of silence. The result is a serenity not easily found. Time to reconnect with friends and family, sharing a conversation and enjoying quiet, quality time together. With zero emissions and zero time lost traveling to the pump and back, it’s not what Hinckley has added to Dasher but what Hinckley has removed that you’ll love most.

The Shape of The Future.
Designed from the ground up for fully electric propulsion, Dasher achieves a new standard of excellence with modern styling paired with super lightweight construction. From her carbon-epoxy composite hull, to her hand-painted, lightweight Artisanal Teak, every ounce of weight has been shaved and every curve sculpted.

The Sound of Silence.
Arriving not with a roar, but with our silent Whisper Drive propulsion system powered by dual BMW i3 lithium ion batteries, the shape of the future is also the sound of silence. The result is a serenity not easily found. Time to reconnect with friends and family, sharing a conversation and enjoying quiet, quality time together. With zero emissions and zero time lost traveling to the pump and back, it’s not what Hinckley has to Dasher but what Hinckley has removed that you’ll love most.

Simple, Innovative, Sophisticated Design.
Dasher is the lightest Hinckley Yacht ever created. With a carbon-epoxy composite hull and carbon stringers, Dasher is light and sleek, bringing together performance and propulsion like never before.

BMW i3 Waterproof Lihium Ion Batteries
BMW i3 lithium ion batteries have been designed with a prismatic cell design for efficient cooling and temperature distribution with compact size and superior shock resistance.

Twin 80HP Electronic Motors
The shape of the future is also the sound of silence. Quiet propulsion and zero emissions make Dasher the best way to spend time on the water with family and friends. This is the heart of the world’s first fully electric luxury yacht.

Dual 50 AMP Dock Charging
Say goodbye to the tank — and all that comes with it. Dasher accepts dual 50amp charging cables so you can charge twice as fast as the most popular plug-in electric cars. Dasher gains a full charge in under 4 hours with dual 50 amp charging.

Dasher’s console is designed to allow the Captain to join the party. A retractable windshield makes it easy to connect with guests, even while at the helm. The touch screen panel makes navigating and controlling the yacht equally simple.

The open layout allows for numerous possible configurations.

Dasher’s hand-painted, lightweight Artisanal Teak has Hinckley’s signature varnished teak look without the weight or maintenance costs of traditional varnished teak wood.

Titanium hardware and console details were both 3D printed to achieve shapes and a level of precision unavailable in typical construction methods.
