New Speedboat

The Czeers MK1 prototype is claimed to be the world’s first solar-powered speedboat, capable of traveling at up to 30 knots. With a carbon fiber frame, it features “photovoltaic cells on almost all horizontal surfaces and an LCD touch-screen control system.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

The 10-meter boat manages to pack in 14 square meters of solar panels and an 80kw electric motor. It uses no oil, produces no fumes or engine noise, and quietly generates all its own power in a completely sustainable fashion.
