When it comes down to it, as much as we enjoy the grumbling engines that provide us with so much adrenaline, I think that it’s quite apparent that, in the long term, we’re going to need to come up with some alternative energy sources to power different vehicles.

Maybe we can still have our race cars but it definitely is going to be a need that needs to get filled as the fuel supply on earth is definitely finite. Therefore, different technologies like electric and solar are emerging and developing nicely in order to try and offer different solutions to the same problem.

Normally, if there’s a situation where we go off talking about alternative energy sources, we tend to stick to the automotive world but this time, we take a slightly different plot twist in a different direction that we think will have you entertained and wanting to learn more nonetheless.

Instead of a car or truck, this time, we’re checking out a boat that’s moving in on 100-feet-long and can claim that it’s entirely powered by solar. That’s right, with the use of this vessel, you’ll be able to travel wherever you want in the world, pending that it has water access, without having to drop a dime on gasoline, that is, unless you run into a long stretch of cloudy days.

If you follow along with the video below, you’ll be able check out this pretty impressive ship that’s attempting to show what’s possible along with collecting data along the way. With the effectiveness that we see from this boat, it really makes us wonder if solar is an option that will ever be developed enough to be implemented in the mainstream, perhaps replacing internal combustion in boats across the water.





This huge boat is powered entirely by solar energy.
