The Loon The ultimate in Enviro-boating! An 8-passenger, solar-assisted electric pontoon boat which is capable of touring inland waterways and lake systems with grace and style and has moveable seat backs to make fishing more enjoyable. This boat combines the advantages of power boating and sailing, without the environmental impact on our delicate ecosystems. There is a large battery on board, assisted by the overhead solar panels, so cruising at night or in cloudy conditions is never an issue.
