    Minor nitpick: "University of applied (arts and) sciences" is not one specific university in Germany, it's an entire category of higher education school separate from regular universities (it's complicated, it's related to Germany having 4 different high school diplomas). This specific one from your video was the Emden/Leer university of applied sciences.

    Also, did the Quad Marine Quad 44 not make the cut because it technically doesn't exist yet? 😀

    IT SEEMS THE METHOD OF PRODUCTION , ENERY USED AND CHEMICALS WITHIN THE SOLAR PANEL PRODUCTION PROCESS IS NOT TO BE CONSIDERED. NOT TO MENTION DISPOSAL MAINTENANCE ETC ETC.

    What I am seeing with the Yacht's is that there are so many Luxury Item's on board,it makes me wonder where the message of Energy Conservation and Efficiency went? Don't get me wrong,those are nice Yacht's,but they are too much!!!

    How long can the material last against salt water from the ocean, the solar power panels? I like #2 and #1 the best. I an not sure haw they make hydrogen from ocean water.

    I’d love to see The SeaOrbiter (#7) cruising the Juan de Fucha Straight and the San Juan Islands in NW WA. Especially being able to watch pods of orcas as they swim by from the comfort of the below water decks!! (I just need to convince a billionaire to part with the $52.7 million to purchase and another few million a year for crew and maintenance etc..!!)

    What happens to the lithium batteries if the boat catches fire? What is the cost of lithium batteries to replace? How often will they need to be replaced? What kind of pollutants does it put into the ocean Or lakes if sinks? What is maintenance cost on drivetrain and solar panels especially in salt water? How long will the lithium batteries last in cold climates continuously?

    Do those solar panels ‘power’ the boat or just trickle charge batteries? Do they have to return to port for recharging or can the panels fully charge the batteries in a reasonable length of time (a day)? This applies to most of the boats you mentioned. Are the panels just trendy decorations or do they actually power the boats?
