MIG 675 Hydrogen Powered Speed Boat (video)
The deets are a bit on the thin side, but supposedly this boat, the MIG 675, is powered purely by hydrogen. And while hydrogren is anything but a traditional source of energy, this isn’t your traditional hydrogen system, which usually calls for a set of tanks that store the fuel. Instead, the MIG 675 is capable of creating its own hydrogen on the fly by sucking up the surrounding sea water and converting it into an energy source, though we have our doubts about how it can possible do this efficiently.
Nevetheless, if it turns out to be real, or our information accurate, this cruiser has seats for three, measures 22-feet long and boasts a top speed of 70mph thanks to its 500hp engine. Other luxuries include an electric anchor roller, a 10-inch touchscreen controller, GPS, depth finder, rear-view camera, an Alpine audio system, a bar fridge with an electric retractable table, an LED navigation lighting system, shower, toilet and teak flooring all around.
Price? A reasonable EUR 250,000 (US$329,727), which sounds too good to be true considering Honda nor any other car company has yet to fabricate a vehicle that can produce Hydrogen on the fly.
Of note, the boat company’s name is LUXURY. Color us skeptical.
