After more than two months at sea, a boat powered exclusively with solar power has crossed the Atlantic in record time and arrived in Miami, Florida. The boat and crew will rest for a couple of days before heading out to Cancun, Mexico. The developers of the boat hope to show delegates attending the UN Climate conference, that renewable energy is the way of the future.

At more than 30 meters long, the Turanor is the world's largest solar-powered boat, and it's crew of six is on a mission to show the world that clean, renewable power is no longer a futuristic dream, but a practical reality.

Raphael Domjan, developer of Turanor, said, "The idea is to show that today we have the technologies to change. Not tomorrow, but today we can change. Now, it is not a boat you can buy on the normal markets but it is possible that we can be optimistic for the future."
