Here's a cool eco-sustainable catamaran yacht named Marvin the Martian. Designed by Maria Malindretou-Vika, an architecture firm in Thessaloniki, Greece, this 50-foot concept boat is both autonomous and energy self-sufficient. The fiberglass hull employs vacuum infusion epoxy resins and Kevlar laminates, so it’s both lightweight and inexpensive. The deck has 35 square meters of photovoltaic panels and hatches throughout the yacht allow for natural air conditioning. With a kitchen, dinette and living room, eight people can fit comfortably aboard!
