The solar-powered sailing yacht “Boka”, which belongs to a rock musician and environmental activist, Antonio Pushich, better known as Rambo Amadeus, took part in the Herceg Novi sailing regatta yesterday and officially sailed to Bay of Kotor, to Montenegro.

The ship renewal project lasted for three years, and, with the support of the Low-Carbon Tourism Development project, Rambo turned the ship into a solar-powered sailboat.

The enthusiasm and love of navigation led to the creation of this Boka solar-powered sailboat, which is powered and operated solely by solar energy. On the deck of a sailboat there are solar batteries with the help of which the batteries are charged from the sun throughout the day, and the engine is used only for sailing and sometimes swimming. The autonomy of the movement of the ship at full speed of 5 knots only on these solar batteries is four hours.

The original ship (donor) was designed at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century and initially sailed on oars and sails. He served to train sailors and officers in rowing and sailing.

At the moment, the renewed Boka yacht can accommodate up to 20 people for one-day sailing, as well as sleeping places for 4 people.

Sailing yacht “Boka” is an example of how you can use the potential of solar energy, which does not violate the environment and minimizes carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.
