>>> Solar powered circumnavigation

Another solar powered boat being built with the plans to circumnavigate the globe using only solar power… check out their video for shots of the model and computer generated images.

Two adventurers who plan to circumnavigate the globe driven only by the sun have revealed a glimpse of what they say will be the biggest solar-powered boat in the world. With neither diesel engines nor sails, “Planet Solar’s” only source of propulsion comes from the vast array of solar panels which cover the entire upper surface of the boat. The pair hope the 30-metre long catamaran, weighing 25-tonnes, will be ready to soak up the sunshine, charge the batteries, and get underway in a year-and-a-half.
