As sustainability is becoming more a part of mainstream culture and the masses hugging an eco-friendly lifestyle, environment supportive transportation has turned into a growing area for designers worldwide. Snatching a leaf from the thought, a bunch of designers at Aptera has come out with a solar-powered boat that is not just eco supportive but its pontoon shape also looks pretty decent. Hailed as ‘Loon,’ the 22 feet long boat is finished with recycled materials, bamboo and natural fibers. The boat features a collapsible solar roof that can generate 1000W of green power, which is good enough to sail the boat for an estimated range of over 35 miles at a speed of 7 knots. Designed for the Tamarack Lake Electric Boat Company, the Loon is capable of fulfilling almost all the inland waterway boating needs of the commuters. It also presents puncture-proof twin hulls, incorporated into the deck, which makes it compact as well as lightweight. Everything about the ‘Loon’ seems perfect apart from the fact that it’s just a concept for now and will take some time to come into production.
