New Model: Steeler 61 S Electric Trawler

Steeler is proud to launch the 61 S Electric Trawler, a  fully electric and seaworthy explorer yacht, which also features the Dutch builder European Powerboat of the Year awarded Flat floor Panorama Concept, which makes it one of the most spacious explorer yachts in its size, thanks to the use of the single level living. The 61 S Electric Trawler also features a unique electric drive technology, with the dominion of fossil-fuel always coming under question, with new green-tech seeing large advancements in bio-fuels, hydrogen, and electro-motors. The dimensions and weights of these systems is always becoming smaller, while their power continues to increase, with batteries becoming lighter and stronger with greater charging capacity, and recharge costs becoming cheaper and free in some ports.  Furthermore, an electromotor powered by a generator is more efficient than a conventional diesel engine. Even during the charging period for the batteries therefore, the 61 S Electric Trawler is more economical than a traditional diesel engine.  Fair to say up till today June 2022, there is no yacht with a reduced eco-print than the Steeler 61 S Electric Trawler.  The engine space of the Steeler 61 S Electric Trawler contains a state-of-the-art drive system, comprising a lithium-ion powered Hydista 120hp electric motor. The battery sets comprise 18 containers, each with sixteen cells, sufficient for four hours of sailing. Out on the ocean waves, a diesel Volvo 110hp generator provides the power. The batteries are charged in two hours, so that the generator only needs to work two hours during a ten hour cruising day. The 61 S Electric Trawler also features solar panels for a permanent and natural energy supply.  Design wise the 61 S Electric Trawler triple deck makes it an impressive and unusual looker. Its silhouette is shaped by the bow and the streamlined length of the hull itself.  Add to that the coupĂ©-style cabin tapering backwards, with the flying bridge towering on top. The principle of the triple deck Flat Floor design is based on the Steeler vision of single level living, whereby the owner has full command of the saloon, galley and master bedroom on the single level middle deck, over the entire length from fore-to-aft, without any stairs or height differences. The top deck houses the wheelhouse with entertainment area, freely connected to the open rear deck. The lower deck is home to two guest cabins, each with its own bathroom.
