Octopus, an eco-friendly solar catamaran

Carole Simonsen is the owner of the Octopus, the first solar-powered catamaran to sail under the Monegasque flag. It uses no fuel and is eco-friendly. Created by Philippe Marengo, the Octopus is the largest boat in its class, propelled by solar energy, the catamaran produces no sound or odour, and is self powered, thanks to its photovoltaic panels.
