In 2015, a group of investors with environmental and sustainability concerns, were able to put together the team and financial resources to start up the company. Sun Concept is fully dedicated to specialized shipbuilding by developing and building exclusively solar powered vessels, presenting an innovative concept of series boat building, with high environmental and technical value.
