SolarSkiff is an exceptionally well engineered and designed solar-powered electric boat that is designed to make it easier than ever to get to the water and enjoy a good boat ride without breaking the bank. Developed by Mississipi-based company Betta Boats, this supremely compact boat is structured in such a way that you don't need a trailer to move it around.
This particular electric boat is powered by a 3-horsepower motor and a detachable lithium-ion battery pack that both weigh only 13.6 kg taken together, so they don't add too much to the boat's weight. This setup allows the boat to enjoy a range of between 10 and 20 miles and a top speed of 5 miles per hour.
Ultimately, the SolarSkiff hints at a future where electric boats will be more accessible and not the just a luxury toy for a select few.
