The company claims that the yacht will be the first fully solar-powered vessel to circumnavigate around the world. The yacht is in an attempt to cover about 27,000 nautical miles in its effort to prove that current renewable energy technologies are reliable and effective and to demonstrate the potential of environmentally responsible mobility concepts. The multi-hull catamaran has a solar photovoltaic surface area of over 537 square meters, hosting 38,000 high-efficiency solar cells, making it the biggest solar-powered ship in the world, according to the company. less
