Navier, a Silicon Valley boating start-up, is building a community of boating enthusiasts to push the adoption of clean and efficient watercraft through its 2021 Pioneer Program.

Its first product, Navier 27, is a 27-foot foiling performance vessel that’s capable of a range exceeding 75 nautical miles at 20 knots under electric propulsion and includes advanced autonomy features.

Navier made a product announcement for N27 at the Palm Beach International Boat Show in March 2021. Since its announcement, the start-up received a wealth of positive reception and is thrilled about the number of people who have expressed interest in the high-tech boat.

As a result of high demand, Navier developed the Pioneer Program that lets people reserve an early build slot for the N27. The program allows early adopters to be the first few people in the world to own the flying, electric boat of the future.

“The goal is to bring together a small group of early adopters and start building a community that’s eager to push new innovations in the boating industry,” said Co-Founder and CEO Sampriti Bhattacharyya.

“While we’re working hard to make Navier 27 available to everyone, our build slots for 2023 are very limited.”


“This program is our way of prioritising our earliest supporters and enthusiasts ahead of full release to the broader market. These lighthouse customers will be looped into our early development, experience early sea trials, and able to provide Navier with direct feedback.”

The Pioneer Program provides the unique opportunity to stay updated throughout the entire build process and aligns with Navier’s long-term goal of bringing clean, efficient waterborne transit to the general public.

Navier works with experts from the America’s Cup and early customers will get a chance to see under the hood of what it takes to build “the boat of the future”.

It also allows Navier to form a direct-to-consumer connection. By rolling out an early adopter program, the start-up aims to accelerate the electric revolution in boating and deliver broader awareness of the possibilities created by efficient craft, not just by Navier but by the industry as a whole.

The Navier 27 is still in the build process with an expected delivery date of 2023 while the first demo will be on water for FLIBS 2022. The earliest slots are available only via application for the Pioneer Program.

“I’m thrilled to announce some very exceptional folks, including eminent technologists and entrepreneurs who are big ocean enthusiasts are already a part of the Pioneer group to push the future of sustainable boating,” added Bhattacharyya.
