New Falcon E8 Electric Tender Revealed

The 8m Falcon E8 electric tender comes with two different electric propulsion systems

The brand-new electric tender Falcon E8 electric tender has finally been unveiled by the British tender builder, Falcon Tenders. ThirtyC Yacht Design, a design firm based in Sussex, created the 8m open tender along with electric marine technology company, Vita Power.

Combining efficiency, flair, and beauty, the Falcon E8 electric tender features sleek lines and a sophisticated profile which are inspired by modern day sports vehicles. Its low stepped aft provides for simple boarding for up to four passengers.

“We wanted to create a no-frills stylish tender that doesn’t just look good or perform well, but will also complement any mothership,” said ThirtyC’s creative director Rob Armstrong. “The Falcon E8 is an elegant boat for guest transfers but is equally suited to run alongside as a superyacht toy and facilitate fun on the water.”

Aesthetics of the Falcon E8 electric tender features a sport car-inspired low stepped aft, a streamlined plumb bow, and clean lines all around. From the axe bow to the stern, the tender’s teak decking contrasts with a specialized external paint job. Inside, there are two seats near the helm and a U-shaped table that hides a sizable storage space.

Vita Power has equipped the Falcon E8 with a propulsion system that combines cutting-edge technology with custom control software. Two electric propulsion kits are available at hand that produce either 90kW or 150kW continuously.

With a DC charge of 20 to 80 percent in under an hour and a slow charge of 4-5 hours, the Falcon E8 electric tender offers variable charging speeds. The new tender should be able to cruise at 20 knots, hit a max speed of 30 knots, and hold a range of about 30 nautical miles.

“The E8 is an exciting new addition to our Falcon portfolio, and we are delighted to collaborate with ThirtyC and Vita on such an enticing owner proposition,” stated Falcon Tenders co-founder and CEO, Mark Pascoe.
