Experience eco-friendly sailing with an electric-powered yacht
Do you love the original silent sailing? Do you also always take a deep breath when the diesel engine has finally been switched off?
Then you will enjoy your holiday on our Oceanis 40.1 Electric "Moritz" with electric drive, because electric drives are so considerably quieter than combustion engines. As they have no gearbox, they are virtually silent. They protect the environment and especially the water quality, no oil, no diesel smell. In addition to moving ecologically, yachts with an electric drive have full propeller torque from the very first second. Your yacht is thus much easier to manoeuvre, which makes harbour manoeuvres especially easier.
The first yacht with electric propulsion at Pitter Yachtcharter - Oceanis 40.1 Electric
With the new Oceanis 40.1 Electric "Moritz" you have one of the most state-of-the-art yachts with electric propulsion at your disposal at Pitter Yachtcharter 2023.
The conversion of the Oceanis 40.1 to electric propulsion was carried out by the competent Pitter Yachtservice team in Biograd in Croatia. As an independent company under the Pitter Yachtcharter brand, the professional team at Pitter Croatia offers boat equipment as well as complete yacht services including regular maintenance, repairs and installation of mechanics and electronics for charter yachts and private owner yachts in Croatia. The conversion of the Oceanis 40.1 to electric drive marks the beginning of an even more sustainable and environmentally friendly future for sailing holidays with Pitter Yachtcharter.
The first electric yacht is already online and can be booked for a charter trip.

State-of-the-art e-motor technology from the company Oceanvolt
The expectations of a yacht with an electric motor are high. ➡️ The Oceanis 40.1 Electric is equipped with an innovative solar panel with 1500Wp. Energy consumed during sailing can also be recovered. If there is no wind, no sun and no shore power for days on end, an emergency generator on board provides enough power to safely reach the next harbour and have enough electricity on board. You can find the exact equipment specifications on the yacht page.
Yachts with electric propulsion: quiet and environmentally friendly
We are therefore all the more pleased to be able to offer you the first yacht with electric propulsion in the Pitter fleet in Croatia with the start of charter in August 2023. This way, we are also contributing to the protection of our environment and the oceans. 🌊
