The first solar-powered boat to travel around the world, TURANOR PLANETSOLAR was at Malta for a short visit while on her Promotion Tour back in August 2012.
Built in Germany for $26,000,0000 in 2010 she was homeported at Basel, Switzerland. Manned by 2 and can carry 50 passengers she was powered by 537 square metres of solar panels which cover her whole deck.
She was unveiled to the world in 2010 and has embarked on a world tour from Monaco since September 2010 to promote solar energy for pollution-free shipping.
During her stay at Malta she was berthed at St. Angelo Wharf part of Grand Harbour Marina which they are our SPONSORS too for a lifetime
