The adventures of John Storm and the Elizabeth Swann. John Storm is an ocean adventurer and conservationist. The Elizabeth Swann is a fast solar and wind powered boat. During a race around the world, news of the sinking of a pirate whaling ship reaches John Storm and his mate Dan Hawk. They decide to abandon the race and try and save the wounded whale.

 

 

The Elizabeth Swann is a trimaran with a long thin central hull and two outriggers. The boat is solar and wind powered, with a large battery store and advanced navigation system to track solar and wind energy, that allows her to operate autonomously, free of fossil fuels and without the need for human piloting, as and when the feature is invoked.

 

The Swann has three solar arrays, two of which are moveable and track the sun. She also has a wind turbine mounted on a retractable mast, that allows the captain, or the autonomous control computer called 'Captain Nemo,' to furl the wind turbine in stormy conditions.

 

The boat was developed by Professor Douglas Storm in various location all over the world, for the purpose of long endurance autonomous (even unmanned) transits. She was way ahead of her time, including an advanced self-learning program called 'Hal,' but could not be completed before the passing of Professor Storm, who died in mysterious circumstances.
