Trondheim 40 is the First Electric Powered Trawler

Styled by Russian design guru Max Zhivov

Designed by Max Zhivov for extended voyages and rough weather, the Trondheim 40 is the world's first electric powered trawler.

The trawler is a vessel of expedition class A Ocean, has a steel hull and unlimited navigation area. It is designed for extended voyages where conditions may exceed wind force 8 (Beaufort scale) and significant wave heights of 4 m and above but excluding abnormal conditions.

Power is supplied by two Torqeedo Deep Blue i 1,400 rpm electric motors and two 64 kWh big capacity batteries. This installation will allow for 6 hours just electric motor ride in total quiet like on sailing yacht.

Two Torqeedo 25 kWh high voltage diesel-powered generators are also on board. They will be used to produce electricity for running the engines and to recharge the batteries.

The 12m (40 foot) electric trawler has 30% longer range that conventional 40-feet fishing boats.

The Trondheim 40 will sleep six people. The first hull will be built in the Netherlands.
