THAMES SOLAR ELECTRIC BOATS


The UK's only supplier of 100% solar electric boats and propulsion systems 
No fossil fuels - No energy bills - No noise

"A quiet revolution in inland boating" Waterways World

Solar powered
Off-grid

A rooftop array of highly efficient solar panels provides all the energy which powers both the motors and all onboard domestic appliances. A large battery bank stores unused energy for whenever you need it. 
And yes, it works in winter!

Peaceful & Pollution free

No diesel engine means no diesel fumes and no noise. Electric motors power you almost silently through the water. With a full battery, you can cruise for up to 10 hours without additional daylight. In summer, you can keep going until you're ready to moor.

Sustainable
Eco-solutions

A wide range of additional eco-solutions are available to compliment our solar powered widebeams, narrowboats and barges. Triple glazing, superior insulation, heat recovery systems, even rainwater harvesting all help you get even better use from your energy.

Uncompromised
Luxury

Being eco doesn’t mean compromising on style. Our fully fitted boats are designed to maximise space and incorporate a bespoke bathroom and luxury kitchen with a full range of energy-efficient domestic appliances, such as electric induction hob and dishwasher.
