Recently was announced that two Dutch researchers at the Technical University of Delft – Nils Beers and David Czap managed to develop the world’s first solar-powered speedboat Czeers MK1. (a combination of their last names makes Czeers, pronounced “Cheers”).
The speedboat was made from 100% black carbon fiber and covered with 150 square feet (14 square meters) of solar cells. The solar vehicle can approximately reach a top speed of 30 knots (about 35 miles / hour or 55.5 km/ph). The solar powered motor allows the boat to operate quite gentle.
The whole décor is luxurious: the boat has a LCD touch-screen control system and a fine leather interior. The approximate price is seven hundred thousand euro, or about $1.1 million.

Nice boat that is pollution free. A good way to start and invent more solar boat like this for our environment safety. Despite the higher cost value but it's worth it.
