Perebo “keep up with the times” and participates in climate protection in the form of eco-friendly boat motorization. For this purpose, from now on the Perebo pontoon boats powered by electric engines can be additionally equipped with a boat-solar-roof. This allows the batteries of the electric outboard engine to be additional charged with solar energy. We can equip your environmentally friendly solar raft with electric motors of different power as well as with solar roofs of different sizes. The solar roof, equipped with photovoltaic modules, consists as standard of an aluminum roof frame to which the solar panels are attached.
Decide for yourself whether you want to order only the aluminum-roof-frame to install the solar panels yourself, or whether the solar roof should be completely prefabricated by Perebo.
The advantages of having an electric boat with mini solar-plant on the roof of the boat are obvious. You save charging current, increase the range of your solar-raft and save the application of a separate roofing, because the solar panels not only convert solar energy into electricity, but also serve as shade and protection from rain.

Example project:

See now an example of a solar boat in the form of a joint project between Perebo and one of our customers. Perebo delivered only the boat with the roof frame (1) and our customer installed the electric engine and the solar panels on the roof frame himself (2).

Would you like to buy a mobile houseboat at a cheap price, but you are not sure whether you want to buy a completely finished houseboat or only components for DIY houseboat? Then PEREBO is the right place for you. With us you can buy either only the modular pontoon floats for building the pontoon hulls as well as a pontoon platform (with or without house framework) or a brand new houseboat. To help you decide which components to buy, you can watch the time-lapse-video below, which explains the basic structure of our PH-20 series motorized houseboats.

Now you can choose between the following 3 options:

1. Buy modular floats for building pontoon hulls

Here you have the option to buy only the individual pontoon floats in order to build pontoon tubes to support your houseboat. You only have to know relatively precisely before ordering these pontoons, how heavy your houseboat will be in total. For this purpose, it is recommended to make a rough dead load calculation of all houseboat building materials as well as the furnishings inside the house and furthermore to add all other loads from e.g. passengers, water and fuel tanks, etc.

2. Configure your houseboat platform

If you need a houseboat pontoon consisting of pontoon hulls, support frame and various other accessory, you can use our configurator. However, here too you need to know relatively precisely what the dead weight of your house together with all the other attachments together with passengers will be. Only then can you specify the required payload in your configuration.

3. Purchase completely finished houseboat

Of course, you can also buy a pre-fabricated houseboat from us, as shown in the video. All important information about sizes and accessory are listed on our website.
