Cruise ships are not environmentally friendly and the beloved vacation option has been on the radar of those who care about the climate for a little while now. Good news though, electric boats are starting to make a comeback and could provide a more eco-friendly option for the future.
Currently, the company SeaDream is working on a hybrid electric boat that will set sell in 2021. It will be heading to the arctic and able to switch between traditional diesel and electric options. The electric motor is quiet and will be better for the environment.
This isn’t the first time in history that electric boats have been tried out. Over a century ago they were quite in vogue but fell out of favor. With the ongoing concern for the environment, they may be making a comeback.
