EF-12 Workboat

The world's first 100% electric foiling commercial workboat. This multipurpose workboat provides a solution for ports and harbours to help decarbonise their operations.

The 100% electric Artemis EF-12 Workboat produces zero emissions in operation, providing a more sustainable way to operate efficiently without contributing to air pollution in busy waterways.

Key features

Artemis EF-12 Workboat foiling with minimal wake behind it and Seahorse, a displacement vessel sailing parallel but producing a much larger wake behind it

Reduced Wake

The Artemis eFoiler® technology increases efficiency and reduces drag, creating reduced wake compared to conventional displacement vessels. Passengers and crew on board the EF-12 Workboat can carry out their tasks without the adverse effects associated with the accelerations and conditions commonly experienced on conventional displacement vessels.

Enhanced stability

The state-of-the-art flight control system and active stabilisation above 2 knots enables the EF-12 Workboat to operate with enhanced stability at lower speeds, while also ensuring optimum performance at high speeds.

Reducing impact

Zero emissions in operation and a quiet performance from the electric propulsion drive delivers real benefits for the crew and passengers

When comparing the Artemis EF-12 Workboat side-by-side with its twin outboard displacement sistership, the difference is clear.

The Artemis eFoiler® system significantly increases stability and comfort for those on board the Artemis EF-12 Workboat.
