Brief Description of the Project:

The prototype was based on the Stickl Yacht E-volution, a small boat with a fantasy name. The boat is built with various battery and motor power options. The most powerful motor option is a 15 kW underwater motor, allowing the boat to reach speeds of 20-25 km/h. Due to the special design of the boat hull, it is capable of gliding, significantly increasing its energy efficiency. The largest battery pack available for this motor is a total of 18 kWh of energy, consisting of lithium-ion batteries. With this configuration, the boat allows for 4-5 hours of navigation at normal speed (~10-12 km/h) and nearly 1 hour at maximum speed. Our goal is to replace this – the most expensive and technically advanced – power supply option with fuel cell technology.
