SYTT partners with Taiga Motors Orca electric watercraft
Award winning Superyacht Tenders and Toys (SYTT) is celebrating being selected as the global dealer for the superyacht market of Taiga Orca electric watercraft. These carbon fiber, two-person, 100% electric watercraft can reach 104 kph top speed, have a 2-hour range and are said to need zero maintenance, making them ideal for superyachts. They are more connected than any existing comparable watercraft offering GPS, LTS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, wireless updates, and configurable parameters all in one data centre.
Taiga Motors was conceived to create electric vehicles enabling escape into the great outdoors without compromise, and offers a range of snowmobiles and watercraft built in Canada. The Orca is the first step in Taiga’s mission to accelerate mass market adoption of electric alternatives. Partnering with SYTT is a statement of intent to work with the very best in the business.
The Orca watercraft is available for pre-order with the first units to be delivered in June/July 2020. Each watercraft comes with a five year no-maintenance powertrain warranty. The first 100 Founders Editions retail at $28,000.
“This is a revolutionary watercraft which the industry is crying out for,” says Mark Peak, Head of Toy Department at SYTT. “Yachts no longer need to carry petrol and a no-maintenance craft can only be good news for all involved. The compact size of this watercraft ensures nimble handling and ease of stowage on board yachts. Each unit is customisable by SYTT so that it can match the yacht and be a unique and special craft onboard for an owner. For anyone seeking the latest and greatest, this has to be at the top of the list.”
