PlanetSolar Aims for Guinness Record for Solar Vehicle
The crew of Turanor Planet Solar, the world’s largest solar-powered boat, announced plans to apply to the Guinness Book of World Records for yet another recognition—the greatest distance ever traveled in a solar-powered vessel.
The boat, which set sail Sept. 27 from Monaco, is a multi-hulled vessel almost 100 feet long and covered in almost 5,800 square feet of solar photovoltaic panels.
The boat crossed into the Humboldt Current over the weekend, according to a press release from the crew’s support staff.
