Dooku's solar sailer

Dooku's solar sailer was a private Punworcca 116-class interstellar sloop belonging to Count Dooku, also known as Darth Tyranus. Dooku used this starfighter to escape from Battle of Geonosis in 22 BBY. Tyranus's vessel was a unique mix of Geonosian engineering and pre-Republic technology. The vessel was piloted by a FA-4 pilot droid and could travel through realspace and hyperspace.

Dooku had this sloop presented to him as a gift from Poggle the Lesser. He then added pre-Republic technology, including a Solar sail, which he acquired in the Gree Enclave.

At the beginning of the Clone Wars on Geonosis, Dooku had his solar sailer docked in his hangar, he fled the Battle of Geonosis on it after being waylaid by Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Yoda. He then rendezvoused with his master, Darth Sidious, at The Works on Coruscant.

The solar sailer was used by Dooku throughout the Clone Wars. During the Battle of Coruscant, he met with General Grievous onboard the Invisible Hand after departing Tythe in the vessel. The solar sailer was presumably aboard the Invisible Hand at the time of its destruction over Coruscant, and thus destroyed.

Decoy sloop

It is possible that Dooku had a decoy sloop that he lent to Asajj Ventress for her mission to Ruul. Alternatively Dooku could have lent her his own sloop.
