Boat / Recreational Boat Concept

Boat
Boat

Sustainable recreational boat concept, with main focus on energy harvesting through wind, sun, and water. The unique sail structure captures the maximum amount of wind energy, as well as integrating solar panels into the sail itself to power onboard electronics and electric engines. The design aesthetics provide a glance into the potential future for sailing vessels. The unique hull structure integrates turbine generators into the outer hulls for harvesting energy from the boat’s natural movement, and also to gather and purify salt water.
