Artemis EF-24: the electric ferry wants to set sail in 2024

Although a lot of people don’t like to see it, battery electric drive is making its way into our lives in more and more vehicles. We’re slowly getting used to electric buses and electric cars, including vans, lately there’s been a lot of talk about heavy electric trucks, electric planes have taken off, and water transport probably won’t escape it either.

One of the companies that wants to bring electric boats to the market is Artemis Technologies. It was founded in 2018, but it has its foundation in the Artemis Racing racing team, which started in 2006. It is a British company based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, which has already presented the EF-12 electric boat and within two years would like to come up with a pilot operation of the electric ferry EF-24.

This novelty is said to reach a speed of up to 38 knots (70 km/h) and at a speed of 25 knots (46 km/h) it should have the ability to sail 115 nautical miles (213 km) away. Electric propulsion means minimal noise and with the way the eFoiler is powered, most of the boat is above the water, sailing should be much more comfortable without significant swaying due to waves. Nausea typical of cruises should also be a thing of the past.

There could be up to 150 passengers on board the 24-meter ship. Condor Ferries would like to start a pilot service in 2024 between Belfast and Bangor in Northern Ireland, a route of over 20km.
