EQ 500

With a dream of giving more people the opportunity to experience the beautiful environments we have in Sweden, the idea of a boat that charges itself with solar panels was born. With technical finesse and a focus on simplicity, we also created a system that allows sharing a boat with others and experiencing nature together.
