mobility on urban waters

a boat sharing concept

In its steady flow, water often forms a fascinating antipole to the hectic organism of urbanity in our modern centres of humanity. The interface between water and humans was the point of origin of this urban boat design. In addition to pure recreation, mobility on the water opens new perspectives of the townscape. The boat provides space for up to five persons while a modular e-motor system ensures great flexibility in use. A sharing system with a decentralised grid of landing stations and the optional transport of two bikes offers a seamless integration into the existing mobility structure of the city.
