Boats

  • 4 Ever Wild and Wild 4 Whales diesel catamarans are ultra-efficient, clean, quiet
  • Goldwing: Arneson twin-disc propulsion technology reduces drag and noise, water muffler system is ultra quiet
  • Diesel engines: Volvo Penta engines are designed for low noise and vibrations (great for the marine life and passengers) and meet European Union emission standards (the highest in the world)
  • Gasoline Engines: Suzuki 4-stroke are quieter than 2-stroke motors, burn less fuel and no oil
  • Sound dampeners: all boats (where applicable) use Noxudol, a water-based viscous elastic compound to dampen noises and vibrations
  • Oils: regularly tested to extend life and are responsibly recycled when oil is changed.
  • The best available technology is used at all times.

100% carbon neutral

Being carbon neutral means taking responsibility for the impact of our business on the environment.

MEASURE: First, we measure our carbon footprint by converting all of our activities such as electricity consumption, fuel use, waste and staff commuting to tonnes of CO2 equivalent.

REDUCE: We then work to reduce those emissions wherever possible—by optimizing the fuel efficiency of our boats, riding our bikes to work, purchasing local, using less energy and keeping waste out of the landfills.

OFFSET: Finally, we “neutralize” the remaining emissions by purchasing verified carbon offsets with Wilderness International
