The 114’ eco-ship, PlanetSolar, has just made its way to Miami Beach’s Sunset Harbor marina. Miami is a stop on the PlanetSolar’s Deepwater Expidition world tour, which is sponsored by Université de Geneve. The all-solar powered boat looks unlike any other, with the top flat completely covered in solar panels with 29,124 cells. While the ship’s interiors skew a tad more Euro research lab than luxe, its achievement of criss-crossing the world using 0 gallons of gasoline, producing 0 CO2 emissions, is something that should affect the future of yacht building around the world.  Get an eyeful of this unusual ship from now to June 6, when it takes off for New York.
