Batteries last for up to eight hours of driving pleasure

Tchibo cooperates for the 560 “Comfort” model with the boat builder Leines Boote, which has been producing electric boats on Lake Chiemsee in Bavaria since 2013. The boat, which is almost six meters long, can accommodate up to five people. At the top, the 560 “Comfort” travels 12 km/h H; Ultimately, the range of the boat also depends on driving behavior and loading. At full speed, the battery charge lasts for up to two hours, at six to eight km/h up to six hours. If you take it very slowly, you should even have eight hours of driving fun.

The boat is equipped with a 2.2 KW electric motor and two 12 V batteries each, which can be fully charged within seven hours via the household socket. The Tchibo highlight: customers of the company receive a price discount of 5,400 euros and ultimately pay 29,990 euros for a ready-to-drive electric boat. Since the 560 „Comfort” according to the manufacturer, weighs only around 500 kilograms, it can be transported on a 750-kilo trailer and does not require a permanent berth in the water. Drivers only need a normal car driver’s license for the trailer and no driver’s license is required for the boat itself. So Tchibo wants to make it as easy as possible for its customers to spend a day on the lake – as long as you have the wherewithal to do so.

The GRP boat with CE certification and category D seaworthiness can be ordered in the online shop, but buyers should take care of personal collection themselves. The purchase price includes personal handover and instruction directly at Leines Boote in Grassau am Chiemsee. Alternatively, Leines delivers the electric boat throughout Germany for 1.80 euros per kilometer. So if you want to drive your boat on the Spree in Brandenburg, you pay almost 1,300 euros for the delivery.

It is not the first time that Tchibo has attracted attention with unexpected bestsellers instead of coffee and household products. In May 2018, the company sold Tiny Houses, which sold out immediately, and since 2021 Tchibo has too E-Auto-Abos on offer.
