Default Mayflower trimaran to cross the Atlantic in 2020

Mayflower trimaran powered by solar and wind energy and with no crew on board. Could this be the future of the Navy happening right in front of us?

The planned Atlantic crossing in 2020 will mark the 400th anniversary of the travel of the first Mayflower, the three-mast galleon which, on September 16th 1620, sailed off and took the Pilgrim Fathers from Plymouth harbour, England, to Cape Cod, in the U.S., after a two-month Atlantic crossing. The same Plymouth-to-Plymouth (from England to the States) route will be replicated by the new Mayflower.

The crossing could require from 7 to 10 days in good sea and wind conditions ...

I see these two pictures as two thing coming our way

Unmanned civilian vessel
Where the ship crew is only there if anything should go wrong
Unmanned military vessel
Here the crew is sitting in some bunker and controlling the vessel.
