CODE – X solar hybrid power yacht

For the man who has everything, a swiss company called Code-X have developed a boat for maximum exclusivity that uses renewable energy combined with two Formula One spec motors. It's not your average speed boat that requires a low loader semi trailer to be transported on land, while any boat the comes standard with 2 x 710 hp Ilmore V10s is very impressive. Code-X combines those with 2 x electric motors and a deck lined with solar panels.

No specs are provided at all for the EV power system so we have no way of judging if they are anymore than novelty value but solar electric pleasure craft is something we are sure to see more of in the future.
