The Czeers MK1 is an electric powered speed boat created by the Dutch company Czeers Solarboats. Czeers Solarboats was formed from the race winning Technological University Delft solar boat team. Team leaders Nils Beers and David Czap started Czeers (pronounced cheers) using the experience gained in construction of the race boat. After selling a replica of the race boat, and spurred on by the positive reaction and belief in sustainable energy, Czeers decided to build a more upmarket watercraft.

During the design phase of the Czeers MK1 there were several key requirements. Solar power, high-performance, and stunning looks were essential. The construction was undertaken by Lightweight Structures who formed the hull from carbon-fibre.

Powering the Czeers MK1 is a semi-custom electrical motor which weighs less than 80kgs (176 lbs). The battery pack is also specially designed for the boat. To keep the batteries topped up, the Czeers MK1 employs unique solar panels developed by Tendris. These are mounted flush into the deck and provide a higher output than comparable panels. The resulting 107 horsepower gives the Czeers MK1 a top speed of 30 knots (55 km/h).

Because of the luxury nature of the Czeers MK1 the trimmings and interior elements are of the highest quality. The leather seats and sunbeds are made by Perida. While the dash mounted touch-screen panel controls all important information about the batteries and solar cells, as well as navigation, audio and lighting controls.
