V-20 Solar Racer is a power packed water beauty

Don’t get fooled by the size, it will not matter when it comes to V20 Solar Racer. This 20 foot boat is power packed that not just sails but flies like a dream and is beautiful to look at – almost like a fantasy created by Vripacks knowhow of Holistic Small Craft design that is solely powered by energy created by the sun.

The little stunner was presented the 2013 green environment award special mention from the international motorboat federation UIM while its Executive Committee selected the V20 Solar Racer for a ‘Special mention for Greening the Sport’. Bart Bouwhuis and Marnix Hoekstra, directors of Vripack, proudly attended the Awards Giving ceremony for this outstanding achievement.

She is the first One Design race boat intended to start a World Wide Class of them challenging each other and the elements in an International race circuit.

The V20 is a light weight composite vessel with solar cells which also has the possibility to stall the sun energy in her Lithium Ion batteries or convert this energy directly to the propeller. A sophisticated battery management system assists the pilot to determine what the ideal speed is. With sufficient energy yield it is possible to cruise 100% on the sun and even recharge the battery at the same time. The boat is driven by an electro motor which powers the propeller allowing the V20 to speed up to 30 km p/h.

She will add a new exciting element to the 5th edition of the DONG Energy Solar Challenge, which is to take place in The Netherlands between 28th June and 5th July 2014 in which Vripack’s own Solar Team have been competing since six years. With the International race circuit building up in 2014 a new race is all set to be added to the agenda - The Monte Carlo Cup which will take place on the Mediterranean waters in the Monaco bay between 10th and 13th July 2014. This race is the result of a partnership between Monaco based Solar 1 Races, The Monaco Yacht Club and Vripack.
