CNBC's Sydney Boyo is reporting that some superyacht builders are investing in solar. 

The superyacht industry, catering to the world's rich and famous, is facing environmental concerns due to its carbon emissions and environmental impact. To mitigate this, some companies are investing in solar-powered electric yachts.

Silent Yachts and Sunreef Yachts are leading the development in this area. They utilize solar panels to recharge lithium batteries, powering onboard systems like air conditioning and lighting.

Despite their popularity, challenges exist for larger commercial vessels. Advocates believe electric yachts have a place in the market but suggest exploring alternative energy sources like hydrogen for extended voyages.
