Earthrace, the coolest powerboat on the planet
In March 2008, Earthrace will attempt to set a new speed record for a powerboat to circumnavigate the globe running 100% biodiesel, and with a net zero carbon-footprint, in order to increase awareness of the environment and the sustainable use of resources.
She is rapidly becoming the highest-profile powerboat in the world, as well as one of the greenest. It is a showcase of environmentally friendly technologies such as low-emissions engines, non-toxic anti-foul and efficient hull design.
A unique attribute of the Earthrace boat is that she has the ability to submarine through waves, and can in fact go up to 7m underwater as she does so. This enables the boat to maintain a higher average speed through big seas as compared to a conventional craft.
