Electric viking ship?

The Klåstad ship is a reconstruction of a 16.5 meter long crackle found at Klåstadkilen near Larvik. The vessel set sail in the fall, and now the 20 meter long ship will have four unique electric motors, which means that the crew does not have to rest when the wind does not exist.

– We have developed electric motors that can be turned. This means that the engine that gives the boat propulsion also functions as thrusters, and provides increased maneuverability, says Finn Limseth in SeaDrive. Both the Viking ship replica and SeaDrive are located in Tønsberg
