Anvera Elab points to the speed record of an electric boat

Anvera’s Elab boat will attempt to set the speed record for an electric boat at the E-Regatta at the Venice Boat Show.

At the Venice E-Regatta 2021 E-Lab, a boat from Anvera will attempt to set the speed record for an electric boat. The boats to compete must demonstrate agility in the slalom and maximum autonomy, and go fast.

In the second edition of the Venice Boat Show, a large space will be dedicated to electric propulsion, not only exhibitors but also with three days of regatta dedicated to electric boats.

Anvera, in collaboration with TecnoElettra and ABB, will participate with the Elab ship in the Venice E-Regatta 2021, to be held from June 2 to 4 at the Military Arsenal in Venice.

This regatta is reserved for electric powered boats, and is organized by Assonautica Venezia, Associazione Motonautica Venezia, VeniceAgenda2028, Inland Waterways International, Venti di Cultura in collaboration with Triumph Group International and Vela.

It will take place over three days, which will begin on June 2 with a parade, the second day slalom events, and the brand new technical / artistic format e-Ballerina. In the afternoon the speed test will take place in an attempt to set a new speed record.

On the third day, the duration and autonomy test, which will be followed by the awards and a conference on the ecological transition in the nautical world.

The goal is to develop alternative propulsion systems, using only clean energy sources to drive the future of recreational boating.

Anvera Elab is the prototype of a monohull planing boat, built entirely in carbon fiber. It is a project for the design and construction of a fully electric powered pleasure boat, in which all parts are integrated and conceived to achieve the ultimate goal of maximum efficiency.

The key points are the search for maximum lightness, using advanced composite materials and the study of structures and centers of gravity. The propulsion consists of an electric motor, batteries, transmission, propeller.

The crew on board the Anvera Elab will consist of Luca Ferrari and the astronaut Maurizio Cheli.
