Equipped with a Mastervolt Whisper generator for clean electric propulsion, Endeavour will cruise for less than $2 a day, according to Mastervolt.

"Mastervolt is a company that innovates, looks to new solutions and believes in green products like our lithium-ion batteries. This project is a great opportunity for us to support a company that is developing creative, green alternatives," said Menno Ligterink, of Amsterdam-based Mastervolt, in a statement.

Endeavour's cruise will continue throughout the month.
