We are a social enterprise established in Singapore in 2012. We design and build solar electric boats to reconcile seafaring humanity and the respect of the environment through the use of state of the art renewable energy technologies and optimized boat design. We are a team of Engineers, University Professors, Naval Architects and Nature Enthusiasts in general. Since our creation, we have been mostly focusing on the South East Asian region. We launched our first prototype in Indonesia, the largest archipelago country in the world as we see this country facing various environmental challenges within its fragile marine eco-systems. We have recently converted a traditional Indonesian boat into the first 100% solar-powered outrigger boat of this kind. To prove this technology is reliable, sea-proof and that any boat can become eco-friendly, we have sailed our boat over 2000 km across the Indonesian archipelago without any technical issue and without burning a single drop of fuel. We are now entering the commercial phase with four different solar-powered catamarans: A yacht to introduce clean propulsion into the boating world, an expedition/tour/dive boat for those eco-conscious businesses such as dive centers, eco-resorts, tour operators, etc., a smaller catamaran to serve as inter-island ferry and water taxi on inland waterways or rivers and finally a craft designed for trash collection at sea, in the marinas or any polluted river to combat plastic pollution with 100% ecological boats.
