A different kind of hybrid vehicle

As someone who hasn’t even got a hybrid car yet, I can’t help but feel a little bemused by this American ‘hybrid yacht’:

Apparently it can travel at six knots under the power of the sun alone. And they are thinking of adding some wind turbines.

This guy, on the other hand, is sailing around the world in a recycled yacht.

It is made from recycled aluminium and fizzy drinks bottles. He is currently somewhere in the Pacific Ocean.

Previously he has built and sailed two other boats: one made from recycled whisky barrels, and another from recycled beer cans.

He is 64 and Japanese.
