Electric inboard and outboard manufacturer Evoy said it has achieved a new round of funding totaling €7.3 million ($7.62 million). The capital includes follow-up funds from existing shareholders, plus a new influx from Klaveness Marine, Grieg Edge and Link VC.

“This is an incredibly important milestone in our path to make boating irresistible, eliminating emissions and building a great global brand,” Leif A.
