    A Catamaran That Sails On Solar

    Solar-powered catamaran doubles as a floating power station

    Nick Lavars, June 26, 2017 (New Atlas)

    “…[Solar-powered boats tend to be the exception but] Soel Yachts wants to play a part in championing cleaner modes of water transportation, starting with the SoelCat 12 electric catamaran…The zero-emission [12-meter (39-foot) fiberglass] yacht is capable of carrying 16 passengers and requires no fuel. It instead draws its power from a roof-mounted 8.6 kWp solar array, which combines with two 60 kWh batteries and two 30 kW electric motors for a top speed of 14 knots…[The yacht has] a range of 150 nautical miles…[but that depends] on the sun and the speed. At a cruising speed of eight knots, the SoelCat 12 can run for six hours using only battery power. With the sun shining, this extends to 7.5 hours, while putt-putting along at six knots, which is described as the ‘break-even speed,’ can see it run for as long as 24 hours…” click here for more
