Fraser Partners with CanO Water to Reduce Plastic Onboard Yachts

Leading superyacht brokerage, Fraser, has partnered with CanO Water as part of their ongoing commitment to protecting the environment.

This initiative, in collaboration with provisioners, Vins Sans Frontieres (VSF), will assist clients and the wider yachting community to play their part in reducing single use plastic on board yachts.

CanO Water produce aluminium cans with the highest recycling rate of any drink product currently on the market. The product also features a resealable closure, making it a much more practical replacement for plastic bottles than other options available.

The cans contain water from the Austrian Alps full of natural antioxidants, available still or sparkling.

The partnership with CanO Water resulted from Fraser’s concern over high levels of plastics used on board their yachts, demonstrating a clear commitment to tackling the problem of plastic pollution in the oceans. CanO Water will be distributed to all Fraser’s yachts and wherever possible used at all major yacht shows where they have a presence, promoting the importance of minimising the use of plastic.

CEO of Fraser, Raphael Sauleau comments,

“For the past 70 years, the oceans have provided Fraser with the fundamental resource for our industry. For us and the wider yachting industry to continue to thrive and for our clients to continue to enjoy the incredible experiences on board their yacht, we need to address the issue of plastic pollution in our oceans.

"Fraser’s partnership with CanO Water further demonstrates our commitment to this cause. We will be encouraging all our clients to have CanO Water on board their yachts and look forward to continuing to educate the industry and the yachting community on this important issue.”

In order to assist with the distribution of the cans to yachts on the Cote d’Azur, Fraser have once again teamed up with their long‐standing partner Vins Sans Frontieres (VSF) who can supply CanO Water to yachts along the Riviera.

Earlier this year Fraser partnered with the charity Plastic Oceans to create an educational programme for clients, staff and the wider yachting industry.  

To support this commitment, on 27th June Fraser is hosting a private screening of A Plastic Oceans, the award‐ winning documentary film with a special introduction by Executive Adviser David Jones. During the screening, Fraser will be serving CanO Water and one of its founders, Ariel Booker, will be present to answer questions and reinforce the importance of reducing plastic waste.
