Venmar “Respiro” and Yamaha Motor’s “Harmo”: the innovative electric boat propulsion system showcased at Genova Boat Show 2021
We are proud to announce the world premiere of Yamaha Motor’s “Harmo”, the innovative electric boat propulsion system that will be showcased at Genova Boat Show 2021. Built by the Italian boat builder Venmar, “Respiro” (project by Cossutti Yacht Design) is the first vessel to be available with Harmo.
For more than 60 years, Yamaha Motor has been at the forefront of engineering breakthrough and technological developments within the marine industry. Today, we take another step forward in electric marine propulsion: Harmo. Next to Electric Drives this is an important milestone in the company’s and the industry’s journey to a more sustainable future. Harmo is a brand new integrated electric propulsion unit and steering control system. Harmo further opens up the possibility to be at one with nature on the water. Harmo offers an ultra-smooth experience, in both fresh and salt water, so you can truly be at peace with your surroundings. It is an end-to-end smart technology package consisting of an electrically powered propulsion unit, a remote box and a joystick for more intuitive operation. Electric motors provide a new dimension to your enjoyment of the water, being quiet enough that you can live the sounds of nature fully and undisturbed.
“Respiro” by Venmar
Built by the Italian boat builder Venmar, project by Cossutti Yacht Design, “Respiro” is the first vessel to be available with Harmo. Founded in Venice in 1969, Venmar specialize in the design and production of both water taxis and unique private vessels. The heritage within the Venmar brand is evident in every boat, from water taxis to 12m private boats. Even today, these boats are handcrafted using traditional techniques and an exquisite attention to detail, making them an ideal partner for Harmo. Respiro itself is crafted from carbon fiber and mahogany creating a monolithic hull which is incredibly stiff, and light at just 700 kg gross weight. In the next few days we will share all the insights on the project of this magnificent boat that sees us as partners in a fascinating and stimulating project with Yamaha Motor and Venmar.
