Navier is a Silicon Valley startup that’s introducing the boat of the future — a 27-foot all-electric, hydrofoil, performance vessel.

The startup is producing a limited number of boats in its first year under the Pioneer Program. Their Navier 27 will be built in the United States with Lyman-Morse shipyard, a well-respected and technologically advanced yard. Lyman-Morse will build the pre-production vessels and first-year limited-production editions of Navier 27 for the 2023 Pioneer slots.

The Navier 27 will be revealed at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October 2022; first-year customer delivery will be in Q2 2023.

Just as electric vehicles are having a moment, so are eco-friendly, electric boats. Specifically, an all-electric, hydrofoil, performance craft outfitted with a highly advanced autopilot.

Navier is a Silicon Valley startup that’s building technology to increase the efficiency of small powerboats by 90% while ensuring zero emissions and superior ride performance. To make this vision a reality, co-founders Sampriti Bhattacharyya and Reo Baird signed with Lyman-Morse shipyard in Camden, Maine to build the first-year production slot for Navier 27.

Lyman-Morse is a well-respected shipyard with roots in the boat building industry dating back to 1978. The yard is well-known for producing custom sailing yachts and custom motor yachts that are sleek and ahead of their time; the company frequently collaborates with naval architects and design firms to bring concepts to life.
