Who we are

Solar Boat Twente is a student team at the University of Twente. We are a motivated team dedicated to make it’s dream come true: designing and building an innovative boat driven by solar energy. The team is working full-time for one year to reach that goal: a top 3 at the world championship in Monaco. Follow us on our road to Monaco.


Our goal is to finish top 3 in the Monaco race against the best teams of the world

We will push available techniques to the limit to convert solar energy into speed and skills in the water

Our purpose is to inspire people to contribute to a sustainable future together with us

The race

At the 12th-14th of July 2018, we’ll take part in the Solar & Energy Boat Challenge: the world championship for solar boats in Monaco.
Before this, we will also take part in the NK ZonnebootRace 2018 in Akkrum, the Dutch Championship at the 11th and 12th May 2018. At this informal event, the thousands of visitors get the chance to take a closer look at the race and all solar boats.
