Electric Yacht Featured on ABC News

Our electric yacht J-Bird III, the first ever to enter the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, has been featured on ABC News.

An electric yacht will race in this year’s Sydney to Hobart for the first time — making history as cannons fire at the starting line.

Non-profit conservation group Ocean Crusaders will launch ‘J-Bird’ in the 77th edition of the world-famous race.

Massive diesel engines power household names like Wild Oats and Black Jack, but Ocean Crusaders co-founder, and J-Bird co-skipper, Ian Thomson, wants to show that isn’t necessary.
