Reef Explorer / Boat

Reef Explorer
Reef Explorer

The Reef Explorer is a safe and low cost solution that let’s everybody experience the underwater world. The boat has a multi hull design which is extremely stable, increases the speed and is almost unsinkable.The Reef Explorer has huge glass sides which offer an exciting view of the underwater world. Driven by solar energy, it’s non-polluting and environmentally friendly.The special hull reduces the wave forming and minimizes the contact between man and sea life. The Reef Explorer is designed to counter the negative effect that tourism has on coral reefs and their surrounding nature, fish aren’t disturbed and coral isn’t taken as souvenirs.
