PLANETSOLAR: THE WORLD'S LARGEST SOLAR POWERED BOAT

Planetsolar, the creation of German entrepreneur Immo Stroeher and Swiss project founder, Raphael Domjan, is a 35 foot long catamaran covered in 540 square feet of solar cells.  Using only the golden rays of the sun, the vessel can achieve a speed of 15 knots without using a drop of fossil fuels.  The ship even contains enough battery power to power the ship for up to three days without sunlight.

The six man crew of Planetsolar are attempting to circle the world in only 160 days.
