Dutch yacht builder VanDutch Marine is partnering with Aguri Technologies to introduce its first electric model, the VanDutch 40 Electric, or VanDutch E.

“Our approach is not just solely centered on design, engineering and manufacturing,” VanDutch CEO Anko Mast said in a statement. “It is also centered on creativity, innovation and sustainability.”

VanDutch announced an official partnership with Aguri Technologies, a division of Aguri Racing — the organization behind the Amlin-Aguri Formula E motor racing team — for the development and construction of the brand’s first high-performance electric yacht.

VanDutch said it will enlist Mark Preston, Ferry Spijkerman and Aguri Suziki as exclusive partners to develop the newest concept, which seeks to reduce emissions by 100 percent.
