We've seen the emergence of electric and hybrid yachts and now the Eco Watercraft Eco 1 is set to be the Tesla of the waves. It's a zippy little electric jet ski that can do more than 60 mph. The personal watercraft has a lithium-ion battery that will last around three hours and will also have solar panels. The craft will be built in a factory in the U.S. that will be 100% powered by renewable sources of energy. Wired reports that the Eco 1 will sell for $32,000 when it goes into production in 2011. An economy model may come out a while later for around $10,000 to $12,000.
