Is This the Future of Boating?

Ever wonder what boats of the future will look like? While most manufacturing companies fervently stand by producing timeless, classic designs, there are a select forward-thinking few who are pushing the boundaries of yacht design. Where handcrafted woodworking style is replaced with solar panels and carbon fibre.

These sci-fi inspired vessels utilize some of the latest and greatest in sustainable, cutting edge technologies.

Behold, I give you BOATS OF THE FUTURE…

(1) The Solar Sailor Sun-Powered Catamaran

The Solar Sailor glides across the water on this axiom, fueled by the sun and its boundless energy.  Solar Sailor is not just one cutting-edge catamaran, but a series of ships powered by Solar Sailor’s system.

(2) EarthRace Biodiesel Powerboat

This boat is also powered by the sun, but with an assist from the fruit of the earth.  EarthRace is a boat built to speed across the planet fueled by eco-friendly biodiesel.

(3) The Code X Yacht

The Code X Yacht isn’t just pretty, she’s fast to boot.  Code X is a 48′ catamaran with 1420 horse power under the hood pushing this sexy beast to 80 knots

(4) The Oculus Yacht

Oculus– in latin, the eye.  In this case, the “eye” in this yacht’s nomenclature is centered on the grand eye of the dolphin that inspired this design.

(5) The Wallypower 118 Super Yacht

Ride the waters on this one, you’re either a Bond villain or a mad scientist.  The Wallypower 118 Yacht is an aggressive, angular poweryacht with the most progressive design on this list.

(6) The Modern Houseboat by X-Architects

The Modern Houseboat by X-Architects is a sea-bound home with the metal structure, the floor-to-ceiling windows that would make the architecture world jealous.  Okay, perhaps it’s not that progressive, but this is one houseboat you cannot ignore

(7) The Eden Luxury Motoryacht

The Eden Motoryacht is only typical in it’s size and function, it’s design is as organic and progressive as it comes.  From bow to stern, head to toe, the Eden Motoryacht carries it’s passengers in ultimate sea-friendly style.

One thought on “Is This the Future of Boating?

  1. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
