The M.S Turanor is the world’s first and only solar powered yacht and took on the challenge to sail around the world some many months ago. The yacht has been sailing around the world for over 400 days with its most recent journey taking the crew from Phuket in Thailand to Mumbai in India. The solar powered yacht aims to complete its journey around the world by May 2012 but all are saying this is definitely an achievable goal with the way the sail is going so far.
The PlanetSolar team on board the yacht want to be the first to circumnavigate the globe in a solar boat which is driven only by this resource. The Expedition leader of the quest, Rapha Domjan came up with the concept and is a firm believer in the power of solar energy.
The yacht which has already amazingly travelled 40,000 km has made stops all over the world including Miami, Brisbane and Hong Kong meaning the yacht has completed three quarters of its world tour.
So set sail on your own solar journey with Solarking UK today and see where renewable energy could take you and your property!
