New speed record with an electric powered production boat

With a SAY29E Runabout Carbon, Claas Wollschlaeger set a new speed record in the class of 8-10 meter long series boats (UIM World Speed “Certificate “Electric Powered Production Boats from 8-

10m”) during the IONIC in Zell am See.

Sprayed wet whether splashed champagne and satisfied and relieved, Claas Wollschlaeger presented the numerous photographers and journalists to report on the six runs over a quarter nautical mile (463 meters).

According to the strict UIM (Union International de Motornautic in Monaco) Claas had to control his SAY29E Runabout Carbon by two buoys attached to the beginning and end of the test track. Two high-speed cameras recorded all six runs and set the start and finish times. The individual images were disassembled and the time superimposed, so that the UIM determined an exact measurement result with four digits after the comma. And in each case in both directions. in Run 3.1, the top speed was 95.0 km / h, in average with run 3.2 then the world record at 89km / h was documented, but provisionally confirmed for the time being. The final result is expected after even more accurate evaluation by UIM this week.

The ultralight carbon supersport yacht is being built by SAY shipyard in Wangen in Germany, explains pilot and marketing boss Claas Wollschlaeger. With a top speed of 51.3 knots (95 km / h), the SAY29E Runabout Carbon is currently unrivaled. The technology comes from Kreisel Electric from Austria, the most innovative developer of e-mobility in Europe.

The SAY29E Runabout Carbon Boot is 100% carbon. This has given us an extremely favorable weight- to-power ratio, making the boat the fastest e-boat in the world.

The SAY carbon composite hull with the unique, steep-angled ‘wave cutter’ contour literally cuts through the water while the side wings ensure maximum stability and precise steering at extreme curve speeds. Thanks to the exceptionally slippery surface of our ultralight hulls, these yachts reach top speeds of up to 70 kn (roughly equivalent to 130 km/h).

Due tothe condition of the UIM on this boat, however, is that it is a production boat. Anyone interested can drive, test and purchase the SAY 29E. Deliveries will start from next spring, with a planned number of 20 to 25 boats in 2019
