Let's present the boat!

The boat

Mahi will be a mono-hull measuring 4 x 1 x 0.5 meter. The hull will be constructed from composite materials and is designed to be streamlined, strong and light while allowing a maximal deck surface for solar cells. The boat will communicate by exchanging data through an onboard modem, GPS and automatic identification system. The brain of the boat will be self-developed software running on embedded microprocessors to steer, communicate and manage the energy flows onboard.

The Electric system

The electric system on board consists of two Torqeedo battery packs, Solbian solar panels and several electric consumers such as the Torqeedo electro-motor, the bilge pumps, steering actuator and electronics.

The sensors

Several sensors are fitted on board: temperature sensors, conductivity and dissolved oxygen, cameras, AIS...
