Picture 1. Experience & Charter fleet The experience- and charter fleet from Natural Yachts of 100% electric boats grew in 2022 to 7 yachts. That is almost double the amount of the 2021 fleet. In the beginning of April the charter season started successfully and we are very happy that we could welcome more than 120 families and friends for a zero emission boating holiday in the Netherlands.
Picture 2. In the press // first 100% electric charter fleet This year we could share the news that we offer the first 100% electric charter fleet in Europe. This means that all our charter guests could enjoy a comfortable and zero emission stay while exploring the Dutch waters. Next to that, our charter guests could experience electric boating and get acquainted with the 100% electric concept. We are very proud on the beautiful reviews they left. Curious to read about their experience? Have a look at our Natural Yachts business profile on google.

Picture 5. Maxus Evo 24 Electric & Maxus 26 Electric Next to the Maxus Evo 24 Electric we are pleased that we have also delivered a Maxus 26 with an electric drive this year. Not only the propulsion is electric also the hotel function, this means we have installed an induction hob, electric infrared heating if desired etc. These electric features makes the Electric Maxus sailing boats even more comfortable. The line of Maxus sailing yachts is very well suited for electrification. Did you know that when sailing, the electric engine will start to generate electricity to charge the batteries? This is not only a sustainable and comfortable solution it is also an economic choice.
