PlanetSolar: the largest solar-powered boat in the world

In La Ciotat in the south of France, a very special boat is undergoing maintenance in a shipyard.

Pascal Goulpié welcomed euronews aboard the PlanetSolar, the only vessel that has sailed around the world using only solar power. It is big – 30 metres long – and generates its own energy from more than 500 square metres of solar panels. Having been round the world once, the boat is preparing for new adventures.
