The boat was designed to consist of adjoined dual hulls made from non-degradable plastic, with both a plastic collection system employed on-board. Micro & macro plastics will be collected from the water’s surface using the space between the hull sections as a “mouth” and a collection guard, to stop floating plastic escaping.
The original design was revised to improve robustness. Keeping the previous dual hull system in mind, swimming floats were used create the hulls, they were secured using acrylic sheets. The Hulls were secured using square tubing that will also allow the water to pass through and filter any micro-macro plastic using an appropriate sieving mechanism. The vessel is radio controlled, and the Dave Fillingham, a retired Rolls-Royce employee, has supported the development of the vessel’s control system.
