Captain's Log

MS Tûranor PlanetSolar first completely solar powered ship to circumnavigate the world

The trip began in September 2010 when the MS Tûranor PlanetSolar left Monocco to sail around the world only using solar power. Nineteen months later she has crossed the Atlantic and Pacific, traversing both the Panama and Suez canals, and navigating the treachorous waters of the Gulf of Aden, to complete its journey.

Along the way she broke records for fastest crossing of the Atlantic Ocean by solar powered boat and longest distance ever covered by a solar electric vehicle along the way.

"Captain Paul did an excellent job . He was prompt and extremely thorough. He was invaluable in helping me make a decision in purchasing a vessel. You won't find anyone better."

Charles Burch

"A customer is the most important visitor. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption of our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider to our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so. -- Mahatma Gandhi"
