The demo boat was constructed by Yacht Technology Association in Szczecin, Poland. A small (6-8 people), open-deck polyethylene hull was purchased (serial production). It was chosen for its resistance to bumps, scratches and damage, and relative easy repairs. The boat was equipped with electric propulsion system, including a POD engine. A demonstration of the self-service rental system, with the use of client application for mobile devices, was prepared for the boat as a proof of concept. The system has potential applications in leisure boating (boats, kayaks, pedal boats, etc.) but also short range urban transport (like car-sharing).
