Norwegian electric boat motor manufacturer Evoy has added the PERFORMANCE e801 to a rapidly growing list of boats that can now be ordered from their respective manufacturer. The new boat will be launched at the Austrian Boat Show in Tulln by PERFORMANCE, taking place between 2nd and 5th of March 2023.


Last year, I had the pleasure of visiting Evoy in Norway, and experienced the thrill ride of my life. Evoy designs, develops, and delivers powerful 100% electric outboard and inboard motor systems, for fast and powerful boats of sizes between 20 and 50 feet. These amazing electric drivetrains are used for both leisure and commercial applications, and seeing this technology take hold in the marine industry is important in my opinion.

With manufacturing based in Norway, it is the company’s mission to reduce boating emissions without compromising on power and ease of use. I certainly can vouch for the experience of powerful boating! So, getting the acclaimed brand PERFORMANCE on board this electric transition is a big deal.

A press release just out states that the PERFORMANCE and Evoy partnership began in 2021, and engineers from the two companies have collaborated successfully together to bring about a clean looking and orderly installation for this attractive and sporty cruiser.


This first edition PERFORMANCE e801 has Evoy’s Hurricane 300+ kW (400+ HP) liquid-cooled electric inboard motor, and coupled with twin 63.1 kWh Li-Ion IP67 water-proofed batteries and linked to a Mercury Bravo One XR final stern drive, the e801 will be able to achieve 50+ knots max speed in short bursts, with 19 nautical miles range achievable at a cruising speeds up to 25 knots. The system is tested to achieve 3000 charging-cycles with minimal drop-off over time.


Evoy’s 10/16 inch display presents information to the driver on everything from speed, rpm, range, water temperature, charge capacity, and much more. From my own experience, I can say it is very well designed and easy to read and use.

Frauke v.Klebelsberg from PERFORMANCE:

“Tightening regulation is making it increasingly difficult, (and completely impossible in many cases), for owners of anything other than electric boats or sailing boats, to apply for a new licence to go boating on environmentally protected waters.

“The emission-free e801, with Evoy propulsion, will enable PERFORMANCE to increase sales, not just in foreign coastal locations, but in our homeland countries, such as Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy where lake boating is extremely popular.”

On the new partnership, Evoy CEO Leif Stavøstrand:

“PERFORMANCE first started building boats as far back as 1985, and the e801 fitted with our 400 hp inboard electric motor, follows a long line of beautifully made craft from this prestigious, custom-boat manufacturer. We are absolutely thrilled to be part of the future of this iconic and noteworthy brand.”

Jesper had his perspective on the world expanded vastly after having attended primary school in rural Africa in the early 1980s. And while educated a computer programmer and laboratory technician, working with computers and lab-robots at the institute of forensic medicine in Aarhus, Denmark, he never forgets what life is like having nothing. Thus it became obvious for him that technological advancement is necessary for the prosperity of all humankind, sharing this one vessel we call planet earth. However, technology has to be smart, clean, sustainable, widely accessible, and democratic in order to change the world for the better. Writing about clean energy, electric transportation, energy poverty, and related issues, he gets the message through to anyone who wants to know better.
