100% SOLAR



First USCG inspected solar passenger vessel


by design


For you and your guests. Imagine peaceful conversations in the absence of engine noise. 

Enjoy the Journey

Without the smell of engine exhaust

No oil or air pollution 


Our boats are 100% solar electric, meaning they do not require

fuel or shore power. 

Low maintenance

Electric propulsion systems have almost no maintenance expense 




You could be a retiring or downsizing sailor. Perhaps you are an up-and-coming professional searching for your first yacht. Maybe you simply love classic boats. Either way, you value sustainability or you wouldn't be here on this page.  Wouldn't your lake, river or sound be a classier place with a boat that is in alignment with your values?
