World's First Solar Speedboat

Combining speed, ingenuity and because it is solar-powered, it's environment friendly.

Czeers MK1 prototype is being tagged as "the world's first solar speedboat". The Dutch creations can reached speeds of up to 30 knots.

According to Gizmag, Delft Technical University Solarboat Team built this 10-meter boat as an entry in the Nuon Frisian Solar challenge in which they won.

This is made from 100% carbon fiber inlaid with leather trim, photovoltaic cells on almost all horizontal surfaces and an LCD touch-screen control system.
