Exciting Days

Welcome to Electrika 2024

Over the last few years a near silent revolution has been taking place, as a new generation of electric propelled, hybrid narrowboats have been launched on UK waterways.

Adoption has been slowly gathering momentum, but finding good information is difficult, even at national boat shows. Electrika aims to provide a meeting point for early adopters, manufacturers and potential new owners to share information and real-life experience of this exciting new technology.

When

Friday 3 - 4 May, 2024

Where

Brinklow Waterside & Marina, Cathiron Lane, Rugby, CV23 0JH

Organised by

Ortomarine in partnership with Aquavista

Two Days - Two Events

Electrika is two great, FREE, events in one - Friday is Trade day where boat builders, hire boat companies and manufacturers can come together to discover the latest equipment, designs and experiences. The expert talks will be B2B focused and encourage collaboration and sharing of ideas to create better products and services.

Saturday we throw the doors open to everyone and if you are considering purchasing a new electric narrowboat or converting an existing diesel powered vessel, then this is the day to come. You will be able to meet the equipment manufacturers, talk to experienced electric boatbuilders and chat to existing owners to hear about their actual experiences of "Going Electric". Saturday will end with an informal gathering with music, drinks and food, to complete a fun and rewarding day.
