About

We are a small but innovative company with the clear goal of making a big change in the boating industry and market.

Mr. Janne Kjellman, the founder and CEO of Q-Yachts and a keen sailor, set out over a decade ago to develop a silent propulsion system for boats.

The Q-Yachts project was conceived with the clear vision of bringing to the market a unique boat which can offer the same experience of speed, relaxed “sailing” and silence, that you will experience when sailing a performance day cruiser sailing yacht. The heart of the Q-Yachts concept is hence the silence.

Thanks to the state-of-the-art electrical propulsion technology supplied by Oceanvolt Ltd and the hydrodynamically optimized hull, the boat produces minimal noise and wake. This means that you can actually speak with a normal voice while driving. Hence, the journey truly becomes the destination!
