Solar Powered Catamaran Velocity 7 By Tony Grainger
Solar powered boats may provide a clean and green sail, but slow speed makes them unpopular among speedboat enthusiasts. Conceived by designer Tony Grainger, the Velocity 7 is a catamaran with a difference that provides better cruising speed in comparison with other solar boats available on the market. Using the hull from the sailing cat, the power catamaran accommodates up to six people to take them out for a picnic or a camping cruise. Generating energy from the solar panels, the 7m catamaran sails at 4-5 knots without using much power, thanks to the Torqeedo engine.
