Now if I can just launch mine without recreating the effect.
SOL Solutions has several nifty looking solar energy products. Not sure how some of them might play on a boat, but their portable power unit could be very handy if you are building "remote" from utilities.
You can combine up to three panels for more generation. Neat design.

A "go fast" electric, with a 10 hour runtime? Sounds impressive.
A UK supplier of various LED lighting. Got some interesting stuff that might work on a boat, canal boat, etc.

Snow, yes snow 🙂 No disposal issues, anyhow. More pictures at the link.
The site is geared around houseboats, but many of the solutions are universal.
Here’s a very nice looking, 33′ commercial diesel-electric hybrid setup. Design goal calls for a battery range of about 20 miles, which would be enough for a lot of little day trips on its own.
The mission of this “Volksboat” is to increase the comfort and reduce the cost of boating in a significant way â€“ while drastically reducing the carbon emission footprint of a boating family. With the absence of smoke, noise or wake in a port, marina or an anchorage the Greenline 33 will change the way motor boating is enjoyed by the owner and also how it is perceived by the boating society.
She should be equally attractive to seasoned motor boaters, sailors and newcomers to boating, offering more room, comfort, fun and value for money than any comparable boat.
