We consciously design & build Solar Electric Boats, launching symbols of harmony between the Ocean & Outgoing Humanity.
SDG’s of application
The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label seeks to bridge the gap between ecology and economy, bringing together protection of the environment and financial viability to show that these solutions are not expensive fixes to problems, but rather opportunities for clean economic growth.

Surya Namaskar - Solar Electric Boat
Surya Namaskar is the 1st traditional Indonesian boat powered by the sun.She sailed 1000's of miles across the country.
Azura Marine consciously designs & builds Solar Electric Boats, launching symbols of evolution into the Oceans. With Surya Namaskar, we merged the best renewable energy technologies with ancestral boat building poetry to experience the epitome of harmony between outgoing Humanity and the magnificence of the Sea. Instead of building a specifically designed boat, we embrace local workmanship and traditions and acquired Surya Namaskar, a traditional outrigger boat - or sampan as called in the region - in order to prove that any traditional boat can be turned into a 100% eco-friendly boat releasing no GHG, no oil leaks, no fauna disturbing noise and vibrations and no bad smell. Surya Namskar is 8.5 m long, has a roof of 28 m2 of solar panel yielding in excess of 5 kW of peak solar power, has 8 kWh energy storage capacity and a built in computer with remote access and live display for the energy management. The propulsion is electric with the Azura Marine "Manta 3.0" electric outboard using a maintenance-free 10 kW high efficiency motor and propeller specifically designed for high torque low rpm electric propulsion (efficiency nearly twice that of a conventional outboard propeller). To prove this concept is functional, reliable and economically viable, we have sailed Surya 1000's of miles around Bali and across the Indonesian Archipelago without burning a single drop of fuel, without releasing any atmospheric or sea pollution and without spending a cent to cover that distance. Surya represents the next class of boats for local communities, eco-conscious resorts and dive centers, small inter-island ferries and water taxis. She is 100% pollution and cost-free while offering a supreme comfort to her passengers: the silence. And as the sun raises every day, tanks were always full, suppressing the hassle of fuel logistics, especially in the remote and less inhabited regions. Throughout our journey, we proved that Surya could sail all night long (our longest uninterrupted stage was 36 hours!) and also harvest enough sun power to move at a decent speed without depleting the batteries under in heavily overcast conditions. We offer conversion packages called "Surya" for outrigger boats and multi-hulls and also a range of 4 solar electric catamarans with optimized hull design.
