It’s a Solar-Powered Motorized Hammock Boat, Dude

Quite possibly the chillest situation ever devised

Sometimes you feel like a nut and sometimes you don’t, which is why we have Almond Joy and Mounds.

And sometimes you feel like being on a hammock but also being on a raft, which is why we have MelloShip.

Billed as “the world’s first solar­-powered motorized hammock boat,” the MelloShip is a pontoon boat that can be equipped with an electric motor controlled via a waterproof remote. 

The MelloShip can carry up to 500 pounds and has enough room to accommodate two hammocks as well as a removable floor that can pair with a pair of pop-up seats and add-ons like a cooler, table or sound system.

The 13-foot vessel’s low center of gravity makes it “practically unflippable,” and its frame breaks down into eight easy pieces that make it — along with the deflatable pontoons — easy to transport.

Available by June 2017, the MelloShip is currently funding on Kickstarter, and a $2,500 pledge will net you two hammocks,  the pontoons and frame, two seats, some mounts and a couple other goodies.

Since your $2.5k pledge won’t get you a solar panel, battery or electric motor, we’ve gone to the liberty of finding another floating hammock boat you might like.
