Adding sustainability to the ecstasy of a sea cruise, designer Imran Othman has come up with a concept boat that generates power from roof-mounted solar cells. Known as the Sea Raider, the boat is equipped with PV modules which collect energy during the day to power the boat and recharge the on-board batteries. During the day, the boat can power it using the harnessed solar energy and during nighttime, the boat’s batteries take over the system ensuring a zero-emission cruise irrespective of the time of the day. In case your cruise takes longer than expected on an overcast day, the engine can be fueled with diesel till the day breaks. The boat is also equipped with a water treatment system that too runs on solar energy to provide potable water during the cruise.
