Dahu: Swiss Solar Boat by EPFL Students

Super Cool Physics Toys

Here is a solar powered board modeled after a Polynesian canoe that can achieve a top speed of 30 knots. This 7-meter long Swiss Solar Boat was designed by EPFL students. It is called Dahu thanks to its asymmetrical side.

The Swiss Solar Boat is modeled after a proa, which is an asymmetric, multihulled Polynesian canoe with an outrigger on one side. It is expected to compete in the upcoming Monaco Solar & Energy Boat Challenge.
