“In designing our first yacht with electric propulsion, we looked for designers who could combine

functionality and ergonomics on one hand, and on the other hand - modern design that emphasizes the ecological nature of our vessel. Among several potential contractors, after many conversations and analyzing preliminary ideas for the yacht concept, we chose EXEON. They are a group of young ambitious people who understand the needs of the client and can implement them into their projects. In addition to their passion, they also possess vast knowledge in design and engineering, while not being afraid of unconventional, visionary solutions. Combining EXEON's ideas with the user requirements imposed by the eWave shipyard - resulted in the creation of the eWave 9000 tourist catamaran, which is now available on the market and setting sail for the open waters." Wojciech Moćko - CEO
