Evoy’s vision is to eliminate boating emissions which is a strong guideline and gives us the direction and dedication to lift boating to a whole new level. Just imagine boating with no sound, fumes or breakdowns – it gives you the peace of mind to enjoy your voyage as it should be – in total harmony with the surrounding nature and wildlife, feeling free and at ease with your loved ones. That is what we call the Evoy Experience.
Evoy was founded in 2018 and residences in Florø, Norway. We design, develop and deliver powerful 100 % electric propulsion system for boats. These are typically fast boats between 20 and 50 foot, bringing the superiorness of electric voyaging into new markets with Evoy’s groundbreaking technology. The plug-and-play powerful inboard and outboard turn-key systems drop into any boat, being the boat your own today or the new boat you always have been dreaming of.
Leif A. Stavøstrand
Born in Canada, but grew up on, in and by the ocean on a fairy tale island in Western-Norway, Svanøy. Rumor has it that Leif has seawater in his veins. From an early age, boats were the main interest and where other kids focused on soccer teams and music bands, Leif had scrapbooks and posters with drawings and pictures of boats. His interest leads him into a maritime career where he sailed the seven seas and he has circumnavigated the globe numerous times. Surviving hurricanes and fires, he was appointed Sea Captain as soon as the certification allowed him in 2011, just 32 years old.
When his first daughter was born in 2012 he decided to go ashore where he did a lightning career from Base Manager to COO and CEO on Norway’s largest oil supply base, Saga Fjordbase. Underway he supplemented his competence with a B.Sc. Naval Architect and an Executive MBA. In 2018 a new era began where Leif decided to combine all his interests, concern for Global Warming, and experience together with his Father Gunnar to start Evoy. The idea was from 2005 and had a long time to mature and ripen.
