Yachts de Luxe (YdL) of Singapore has placed a $5 million commercial ten-year worldwide contract with Oxis Energy to build the world's first ever luxury boat to be powered by lithium sulfur (Li-S) technology. 

Oxis will work with YdL to design a 40-foot boat, which will carry a 400kWh battery system comprising of Li-S cells and a BMS with the goal of achieving a range between 70-100 nautical miles at cruising speed.

The design and manufacture of the cells, modules, the BMS and its installation will be carried out by engineering company, Williams Advanced Engineering, a subcontractor on the project. 

Huw Hampson-Jones, CEO, Oxis Energy, said: “In August, we successfully powered the first ever US built electric aircraft with a flight time of just under two hours. Our intention is to achieve the same level of success in maritime applications. The collaboration allows us to achieve this, and provides a level of safety to our seafaring clients, far beyond existing lithium-ion battery systems.”
