Eqraft on Water

Embracing the future with young entrepreneurs and solar power: Eqraft Sponsorship with Solar Boat Racing Team DB-20


Many people have already heard about solar panels for various purposes, but have you ever heard about a solar powered boat? Imagine being on water and being empowered by the sun.

Solar panels create a safe, self-sufficient and renewable source of energy. Since we are embracing the future, what would be a better way than combining green energy and young people? When graduates from Bogerman College in Sneek, the Netherlands, reached out to us, we decided that we wanted to sponsor them in improving their own solar powered boat. With our support and the support of many others, the DB-20 Racing Team, has got their boat ready to join new competitions this year.

Since we are embracing the future, what would be a better way than combining green energy and young people?


Even though a young team, their V20 boat has already had great success. Last year they won silver at the Dutch Solar Challenge, the world cup for solar powered boats, and came in third at the Monaco Solar Boat Challenge. 

This year they are hoping to go to Monaco and the Dutch Solar Challenge again. But first, join us to cheer them on at the Dutch Solar Boat Championship in Akkrum on the 26th and 27th of May. You can follow the DB-20 Racing Team on Facebook.
