This fully solar-powered catamaran designed by Craig Loomes is absolutely amazing, despite looking like it belongs to an environmentally conscious supervillian. With 127 horsepower, average speeds of 5 knots, and an attached filtering net that collects and disposes of unwanted marine pollution---it really is an impressive creation that will hopefully inspire more and more boat manufactures to go solar.
