Recently worldwide interest is growing toward commercial, military or scientific Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) and hence there is required to develop their guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) systems. Real USVs are a relatively new advent, so the drawbacks of each model will be modified during the time. The proposition of an environmentally friendly as well as high efficient USV's design are the main purposes of this paper to guide future researches. Power management between renewable

Technical requirements relate to guidance and control methods are provided to achieve the highest performance in the environment. Also, the hull structure and its material are important factors that are considered in this paper.
