05/21/13 - MS Tûranor PlanetSolar, the world’s largest solar boat, set a new record for the fastest transatlantic crossing by a vessel powered entirely by solar energy, smashing its own 2010 record by four days. The 115-foot Swiss catamaran traveled 2,867 miles (5,310 kilometers) across the Atlantic Ocean in 22 days, conducting experiments along the Gulf Stream as part of the PlanetSolar DeepWater expedition.

The catamaran left from Las Palmas, Spain, on April 25, 2013, and sailed across the Atlantic Ocean, traveling at the speed of 5.3 knots before it reached Marigot, St Martin, in the West Indies on May 18, 2013. read more>>>
