The dutch have created a solar powered speedboat that can glide across water at 30 knots. Sure, there are other boats that are much faster….but they also require huge amounts of gas. This speed boat is exclusively powered by the sun and is quieter than traditional gas consuming boats. The body of the boat is made up of lightweight carbon fiber. The boat has great balance of power and weight to make it glide through the water at blazing speeds.
The 10 meter vessel, Czeers MK1 is made up of photovoltaic cells, which is basically one large solar panel with seats and a lightweight engine flying across the water. Now only if we could run cars like this, that would be sweet, never have to pay for gas!
