Solar powered boat SunCat 12/13

solar boat SunCat 12/13

SunCat 13 is a 3 seater solar boat (up to 175kg overall weight) built with a double hull. Easy handling makes this electric boat with photovoltaics ideal for boat rental. Its maximum speed is around 7km/h and it can be driven limitless just by using the energy of the sun. With an exposure rate of 1000 W/m2 the boat can achieve a speed of 5km/h.


The hull shape as well as the electric propulsion do not only comply with the newest catamaran building standards, but also implement improvements from long lasting experience with this boat type and others.


SunCat 13 is navigated through a bowden wire system with a steering wheel. On one hand, this makes it easier to control the boat, on the other hand this creates a third seat. The boat is operated through a control lever.


SunCat 12 can carry 2 passengers and is operated by a lever.
