Boats

  • 4 Ever Wild diesel catamaran is ultra-efficient, clean, quiet and able to convert over to an electric hybrid within the next 2-3 years (by 2019-20)
  • Goldwing – Arneson twin disc propulsion technology reduces drag and noise,  water muffler system–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 more quiet than 2 stroke motors, burn less fuel and no oil.
  • Sound dampener – all boats (where applicable) use Noxudol, a water based viscous elastic compound to dampen noises and vibrations.
  • Oils – are regularly tested to extend life and 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 the Community Carbon Marketplace
