2021 Monaco energy boat challenge

It was amazing to arrive in Monaco with the whole team. We successfully completed our first race and flew over the Mediterranean sea with our trimaran. On the second day, the most complex electrical system of our boat was severely damaged, an enormous setback for the team. We examined the boat and were unable to repair it in Monaco with the resources we had. We were so disappointed to not sail the endurance challenge.

Nevertheless we can be extremely proud. We turned our dream of building the world’s first flying hydrogen boat into reality and showed the world the potential of green energy!


Hydro Motion

This year we have an ambitious new plan. We, as the TU Delft Solar Boat Team 2021, are building a hydrogen boat. We call this project Hydro Motion.

With this boat we will race next summer in the open sea class during the world championships in Monaco.

We want to inspire the entire maritime industry by showing what is possible with a hydrogen-powered boat. Together we can take the necessary steps towards sustainable shipping.

About us

The TU Delft Solar Boat Team is a Dream Team of the TU Delft. Our team consists of 21 ambitious students from eight different faculties.

We take on the challenge to design, produce and test a fully functioning  boat that runs on clean energy within one year. Every year we prove the competence of our boat in spectacular races.

With this, we want to accelerate the transition to green energy and inspire the whole maritime industry. Together we shape the engineers of a sustainable future!
