MAYFLOWER TRIMARAN - The diesel electric, solar-assisted research boat will aim to traverse the Atlantic Ocean in 2021 with no humans on board.

 

 

The Mayflower 400 MAS with AI Captain is set to attempt an unmanned Atlantic Ocean crossing in 2021.

 

The autonomous trimaran was designed for long durations at sea with the objects of sampling data from the ocean and perfecting the navigation system against COLREGS collision avoidance compliance.
