Freepower offers a unique boat concept that together with our POD are in the forefront of the development of electric boats. The fact that we both are produced locally in the same city provides synergy effects that simplify integration and cooperation.

Industrial designer, Pivot Industridesign AS

Pivot Industridesign has long experience with maritime projects. We always look for the dimension in a project that can provide the best possible conditions for future generations. With Freepower, it was easy. We had the opportunity to design a boat exactly as we think it should be: Quiet, solar-powered, timeless, efficient, spacious, open, protected, flexible and virtually maintenance-free.

CEO, GreenBoats AS

The reason Freepower Solar boats excite me, is the promise of self sufficiency; being able to operate off-grid. What this will means, is not always being stressed about having to find a location to charge your boat - this gives more freedom, and thats what i'm all about!
