Now is the Time for Green Yachts

Global warming, climate change and plastic pollution are just three of many forces threatening our planet today, so there’s no better time for the superyacht industry to do its bit and start evaluating its degree of efficiency and sustainability. This was the topic of conversation during SuperYacht Times second webinar held during the Coronavirus crisis, hosted by yachting expert Hein Velema.

The webinars expert panel comprised Peter Lürssen, CEO of German shipyard Lürssen, head of private jet and yacht finance at BNP Yacht Finance Olivier Blanchet, managing director of Water Revolution Foundation Robert van Tol and project manager of the 106.7-metre Black Pearl Derek Munro. From why green yachting is so important and the expense and investment in eco-technology to the importance of hydrogen to create more environmentally-friendly motor yachts, you can listen to the full webinar on the link below. We hope it gives you some food for thought!
