Entry Description

I thought to the first concept of this boat in 2019 to design a sporty yacht equipped with electric/hybrid propulsion.This differently by the standard engines systems installed of the same boats already available on the market.The idea is reduction the environmental impact of the performance crafts through the progressive elimination of the engines that use fossil fuels. Starting from an Open Fast-Commuter designed in 2018, now I present an evolution,aluminum or FRP made, equipped with photovoltaic hardtop,2 electric brushless hight performance engines and surface propellers transmission.
