BMW has clearly positioned itself as one of the industry leaders in electric and battery-powered cars, and the German automaker is now set to make a huge splash in the water transportation sector by lending its batteries to the all-new Hinckley Dasher electric luxury yacht.

This 8.6-meter yacht comes equipped with a BMW i powertrain comprising a pair of 40-kWh batteries working in conjunction with two Hinckley Whisper motors. This allows for a combined range of 64 kilometres in cruising mode.

In addition to being eco-friendly, this electric luxury yacht also benefits from the reduced weight that comes with not having to haul massive engines around, going to show that this kind of high-end transportation isn't just good for the environment, but also allows for increased performance.
