Solar/Electric boat candidates

I caught sight of this so-called "Tri-Trawler" on Craigslist here in Sarasota. Looks like a good candidate for solar/electric consideration. Currently, it sports twin 9.9 outboards.

I've looked at it and still don't understand what it is supposed to do.
It looks like it has a beam of 4 feet.

it looks like a Kurt Hughes design, “This 38’ power trimaran was designed as a “mothership” for a Texas couple who are avid kayakers. It will allow them to power out dozens or even hundreds of miles to the prime kayak cruising areas carrying a full compliment of the little boats. This tri is a kayak range multiplier. When the days paddling is done, the galley, shower, and generous double berths provide a welcome respite.”
