This maker claims 4-5 knots continuous under solar power
Judging solely from the picture, it appears to be a comfortably large cabin cruiser.

It has its charm, but the new boat won't look anything like it used to.

My current thinking is to make it a trimaran, the center hull will have the gas engine(s). Something along the lines of this hydroplane, but huge, 60ft x 30ft.
See all that surface area for solar panels?
Yes, I am crazy
