Monaco 2012 - Launch Date for the Bolt 18 Tender - from the drawing board of Mylne Yacht Design , designer of legendary yachts such as Thendara, Tigris, Atlantide etc., since 1896
November 2012 - Mylne set the British Water Speed Record at 32.77mph for the National "Unrestricted Electric Runabout" class.
David Gray, the designer says "The boat is exceeding all our expectations in terms of speed, acceleration, autonomy, quietness and ride quality. We received an exceptional amount of attention at the Monaco Yacht Show, and later during Les Voiles de St Tropez. The simple lines, open plan, pollution free all electric propulsion, low maintenance and astonishing performance were very well received."
