Side of boat
Extremely high-tech, the boat is a so-called trimaran at about 78 feet in length with a hull design that can slice through waves. It's constructed largely of a lightweight carbon composite, which is typically used in military aircraft, and Kevlar. It's equipped with two low-emissions diesel engines called Cummins Mercruiser Diesel engines, which can hold as much as 3,000 gallons of biodiesel. The weight of the craft doubles when the boat is refueled.
