Project Research (ongoing) Solar Power

The Houseboat Centre has already completed two Solar Power projects and is currently engaged in a third.

  1. The Houseboat Centre’s second home was a wooden Chalet built beside a lake where research into houseboat style plumbing, rainwater collection and solar power generation was undertaken.
  2. Moving to it’s third home on the shore of Lake Colibita The next project was a Self-driving solar powered boat with remote digital controls. This was successfully completed. The research boat has now been sold and you can buy car-toppable self-driving solar boat kits and parts  resulting from that research at e-marine.uk .
  3. The Current project is a small (7 metre = 21′ )all-electric solar powered houseboat for canals lakes and slower rivers. You can follow progress on https://www.facebook.com/marextouringsport/ .
