The Superyacht 006 Aspires to Be the James Bond of Eco Boats

The 43-meter, eco-friendly Superyacht 006 is proof that the green movement is hitting the high seas as well. If I was able to afford a yacht like this, I would at least want it to be kinder on the environment than most of the waterborne behemoths these days.

A 160-square-meter hardtop made up of photovoltaic cells will generate all the power needed to switch off the boat's gas engines when coasting in and out of marinas and traveling at low speeds. The eco-friendly Superyacht 006 is also able to transfer its energy to shore to power marinas or shore-based electricity networks.
