Solar electric boats - An integral design approach for efficient solar electric transportation on the water

By combining naval architecture and system integration know-how, Soel Yachts provide a solar electric alternative for coastal water passenger transportation.

Soel Yacht offers the opportunity for water bond destinations to become fully sustainable not only on land but also on water. From its specific hull design to its smart and safe lithium energy storage system, Soel Yacht's vessels are integrally designed for superior electric propulsion. Entirely fuel independent, the vessels offer performance and endurance while generating neither engine noises nor exhaust fumes. Soel Yacht's boats can either be charged by the sun or plugged into the local grid. The vessels can also be used as mobile power stations capable of feeding energy back into the grid or providing power at places where no grid is available. Soel Yacht's technology can easily be applied to bigger or smaller vessels, achieving a high scalability for worldwide applications.
