Boating as a Service

Through AI, one can learn to steer the boat gradually and it could also be part of the package for more personalized experiences, such as recommendations on experiences, sports, destinations and more.
Ship-to-ship energy sharing and autonomous recharging
The company presented other exciting proposals at CES 2023. The first is the ship-to-ship energy sharingbut how? It would be enough for a group of boats in the immediate vicinity to redistribute the energy through automatic level monitoring. Each boat could then make sure they had one charge enough to reach his next destination.
The second proposal involves recharging from autonomous, mobile submersible batteries. Nicknamed Stingraythese batteries could charge the ships they are docked with and automatically connect and recharge as needed, without human intervention.
Future initiatives like these have the power to change the concept of what it means to go by boat, making it a shared and sustainable experiencethe aim of offering peace of mind.
