This modern hybrid electric houseboat was designed by Amsterdam based +31 Architects for a German adventurer and businessman.

The 15-meter sleek cruising home features plenty of windows for he and his guests to fully engage in the beauty of the surrounding views of nature and escape the digital world.

Stepping inside, you’ll find a spacious living room, a cozy bedroom, and bathroom all built with smooth, clean wood panels. You’ll even be helping nature while admiring it as this houseboat utilizes solar panels and solar collectors on the roof to produce energy and provide you with warm water.

+31 Architects was founded in 2005 by Jorrit Houwert. The firm is active in the field of architecture, interior design, urban planning and is an expert in the field of floating constructions. They’re known for several high-profile houseboat designs on the prominent Amstel River in Amsterdam’s city centre, such as Watervilla Omval nicknamed “i-Phone boat” because of the striking round sides and smooth metal facade.

Evoy Electric Outboard Motor

Evoy Electric Outboard Motor

Here’s a way to electrify your boat to go clean and green. Norway-based Evoy has revealed a prototype electric outboard motor. The motor was designed to fit the arctic-exploring Zodiac Milpro MARK 5 and produces 115 hp in this configuration. The motor is best used with low planing boats and promises to eliminate noise, smell, pollution while reducing maintenance and usage costs.

Modular battery blocks let range extend as needed, and the system offers the same instant torque and emissions-free operation that have made their road-going counterparts such a hit.

Evoy launched in 2017. It’s nice to see Evoy and other companies doing their part to help reduce boat emissions much like their automotive counterparts. The company will consult with you regarding your boat’s applications, whether for private or commercial use.

Beau Lake Electric Boat

Allow us to introduce Beau Lake’s new classic electric boat. You may recall we featured their retro paddle boat last year, and simply love their work.

Hinckley Dasher

Hinckley Electric Yacht

Here’s Hinckley’s first zero emission electric yacht.   This 28.6′ 21st century design is aptly called Dasher after the original Hinckley Picnic Boat that created a whole new genre of yachts in the 1990’s.  It sports a carbon-epoxy composite hull designed by Michael Peters to provide superior performance and handling.  It has hand-painted “teak” brightwork that never needs to be oiled and saves weight.  The titanium hardware and iPad-like controls are elegantly modern.  Dasher‘s twin 80 horsepower electric motors and dual BMW i3 lithium ion batteries provides its electric performance.

Dasher is a zero emissions boat that requires zero time at the fuel dock.  It can be charged with dual 50 amp charging cables that are standard in most marinas, and charge twice as fast as the most popular plug-in electric cars.

Since its cruising speed is a modest 10 MPH with fast cruising at 18-27 MPH, and its range on a single charge is limited to 40 miles or less, Dasher is not intended to be an offshore boat.

Boating meets the Jetsons.  Using a pair or retractable carbon fiber hydrofoils, the aptly-named Foiler Flying Yacht glides above the waves. It’s powered by two 320 hp BMW diesel engines, linked to two electric generators and two electric torpedoes for a hybrid system. The result is a top speed of 40 knots, a range of 130 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 30 knots, and the ability to tackle six-foot waves with no onboard disruption for you or your seven passengers.  Move from “Fly” mode to “Float” mode at the touch of a button.
