Electric Boating Evolution: Seavolt and d’Albora’s Pioneering Initiative

Seavolt and d’Albora Marinas: Powering the Future of Electric Boating in Australia

The world of boating is on the cusp of a revolutionary change. As the automotive industry accelerates towards electric vehicles, the marine sector is not far behind. Leading this charge in Australia is Seavolt, in partnership with d’Albora Marinas, bringing the nation’s first DC fast charging network for recreational and commercial electric boats.

A Pioneering Partnership

Seavolt and d’Albora Marinas have embarked on a groundbreaking partnership to deliver sustainable and efficient marine charging solutions. This collaboration is set to transform the boating experience across Australia’s east coast, starting with the first installation at d’Albora The Spit on Sydney Harbour. This location will offer a comprehensive range of services, including fast charging, berthing, boatyard maintenance, and waterfront dining.

Chris Cudlipp, CEO of Seavolt, emphasizes the importance of a robust charging network powered by 100% renewable electricity to support the growing electric boating market. d’Albora’s network of prime marina locations in Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria provides the perfect platform for this initiative. Julien Pouteau, Managing Director of d’Albora, highlights the increasing interest among their customers in berthing new electric boats and the opportunity to support emissions-free boating.

Making Electric Boating Truly Accessible

The introduction of DC fast charging facilities across d’Albora’s marinas will make electric boating truly accessible. Boaters can now enjoy the convenience of fast and efficient charging, reducing downtime and maximizing their time on the water. This infrastructure is crucial in supporting the growing number of electric boats, ensuring they can operate smoothly and sustainably. By providing easy access to renewable energy, Seavolt and d’Albora are breaking down the barriers to electric boating, making it a viable option for a wider audience.
