Our mission = less emissions

Team Great Britain is planning to smash the Blue Riband Atlantic Record for powered vessels. Our objective is to start in New York and pass by the Bishop Rock Lighthouse (UK) in less than 58 hours but…

TGB 34

…But using only 1/10th of the fuel?

Can we really break the Blue Riband Atlantic Record using 10% of the fuel used by Destriero in 1992?

You better bet your bottom dollar we can!

How? Because we use aerospace technology where others use gas guzzling trial and error. Our vision is to take the stink out of stink boats!

Less power for more speed

How about we break the Atlantic record using only 10% of the fuel used by the current record holder. Wouldn’t that be cool?


Let’s combat climate change by leading a whole industry!

Cos that’s what this is all about. Taking the stink out of stink boats!

OK! So 3106 miles in 48 hours doesn’t sound so tough eh? Trust me, the technical design challenges are extreme before we can even contemplate the crossing from New York to UK!
