Our solar electric boats are intended for passenger transportation, for professionals who care about the environment and their image. We make it possible for tourist operators and public transport companies to offer their customers a clean and quiet navigation, free from CO2 emissions, noise and vibrations. Our Aquabus units are fitted with batteries that have an autonomy of about 8 hours at cruising speed; this autonomy can be extended through options like new generation batteries (Lithium) or even an hybrid kit.
The latest arrival in our line of products, the "Solar SeaCleaner", is a natural evolution of our strong know-how in clean navigation: an electric boat powered by solar energy to remove floating garbage in port and bathing areas.
This 8.50m long boat can comfortably transport up to 12 passengers. It is particularly used as a taxi boat, typically for hotel resorts looking for a clean and innovative means of transport. Several options make it possible to configure this model to suit your needs: swimming platform, bimini, interior equipment....
This boat can be used without a professional permit in several countries, a significant advantage.

Based on our long experience in electro-solar passenger boats and aware of the always increasing floating waste, particularly found in harbours and swimming areas, we have developed an electrical cleaning boat whose energy is supplied by the sun, in brief a "clean cleaning boat"!
While navigating in a given area, this boat picks up the floating waste (wood, plastic, polystyrene, seaweed....) and stores it on board in a specially designated container.
This boat can be made using ecological material (linen fibre hull & cork sandwich) in order to make the approach "clean boat" coherent as a whole.
