JR Yachts was founded in 2016 by Jaap de Jonge.

  Jaap has a highly regarded background as a hydrodynamic engineer who spent the vast majority of his career working on design & engineering whilst overseeing R&D operations and projects arround the world for some of the most highley regarded shipyards in the world and being baced in Netherlands. 

While reviewing a new scientific hydrodynamic theory Jaap had a completely new & unique idea for development of electric boats and developed a new ultra-efficient hull type hydrodynamically developed for electric propulsion.

 

Whilst the majority of other motorboat builders are simply converting standard deep -V hulls with an electric motor, JR Yachts has opted to take a completely new approach and developed a totally new type of hull to optimize the power and thrust developed by an electric drive train. This was a game changer for both performance and range as the characteristics are so different from traditional power units, with a completely new underwater hull profile now specifically developed for electrical hydrodynamic efficiency, instead of just pushing a conventional hull with an E-conversion.

This stunning NEW C7 is a 7 meter electric picnic cruiser that is designed to be easily towed with a small family car, ensuring more fun times out with family and friends.

The JR yachts C7 has been developed from the ground up to be the most advanced picnic cruiser / day boat of its kind, with a completely new hull design developed over the last 12 months with an intensive collaboration between hydrodynamic computer design technology and with real world models, which were then tested in hydro tanks and scaled to give us the final result of this beautiful day boat.  Compared with the most popular types of hull designs already on the market, this advanced new design from JR yachts is an extra 10% more efficient than the next best result.

Launching in summer 2022 JR Yachts looks to enhance a new direction in electric boating, tirelessly working from their HQ in the Netherlands to deliver ultimate comfort and performance all combined with a beautiful premium finish from their boats. This is achieved by using the same boat building technologies as used on high performance racing yachts and super yacht constructions, using only the highest quality vinyl ester foam sandwich vacuum infusion adding greater strength & better protection than any polyesters can, whilst also offering far greater control during vacuum infusion process to ensure an even coverage of resins and the super high gloss faultless finish this boat deserves.
