Superyacht Tenders & Toys (SYTT) in collaboration with Yacht Carbon Offset, is delighted to announce the introduction of its Yacht Carbon Offset option for watercraft with engines over 75hp.
From outfitting many of the world’s most prestigious yachts with tenders, limousines, chase boats, SOLAS rescue boats and high-powered RIBs, SYTT recognizes that a number of its clients would welcome the option to offset their greenhouse gas emissions. This new Yacht Carbon Offset option is a response to this.
Fees are calculated based on levels of CO2 emitted by the vessel’s engines against equivalent carbon savings from green energy sources, and the money is used to support these projects.
For craft with engines over 75hp, each new owner will be invited to select a Yacht Carbon Offset option to counteract the estimated greenhouse gas impact of 200 hours of operation at cruising speed. Clients chartering tenders will also be given the option to offset the actual or estimated fuel consumed.
Claire Richardson of SYTT said, “We recognise that yacht owners are becoming more environmentally conscious both in their businesses and their leisure time but they don’t want to compromise on choice of tenders. This offers an alternative so that they can still enjoy high powered tenders but also address their environmental impact if they wish.”
Mark Robinson of Yacht Carbon Offset added, “The thrill of powered watertoys, jetskis and sport-boats has become a central part of the superyacht experience, and tenders are essential for transferring guests in safety and comfort. These craft are often powerful and busy, so it makes sense to react to the corresponding environmental impact. We are excited to be working with the growing team at Superyacht Tenders & Toys to bring this option to their discerning clients.”
