Revolutionising marine electric propulsion with their user-friendly, connected, sustainable and safe electric products.

RAD was formed to develop the next generation of propulsion systems for all types of marine applications, from kayaks to zero emission vessels. Founded in 2018 by Dan Hook and Richard Daltry, two engineers who previously developed ground-breaking marine robotic ASVs – marine robotic vessels – for the oil and gas, defence and oceanographic sectors. It was here that they discovered that existing, on-the-market electric propulsion systems were lacking in smart, connected technologies, quality and durability.

The RAD team comprises a team of naval architects, systems engineers and automotive experts who are all passionate about the water and have an in-depth understanding of the harsh marine environment.
