Partnership between Superyacht Tenders & Toys and UK company Yacht carbon Offset introduces to yacht owners the option to counteract the carbon footprint of a vessel’s engines and generators. Tonne for tonne, the yacht’s emissions are offset by equivalent greenhouse gas reductions from projects such as renewable power.
Superyacht Tenders & Toys (SYTT) has joined forced with Yacht Carbon Offset to provide yacht owners with the chance to offset their greenhouse gas emissions. The option is now available for craft with engines over 75hp.
SYTT outfits superyachts with tenders such as limousines, chase boats, SOLAS rescue boats and high-powered RIBs and the company recognises that several of its clients would welcome an “environmental upgrade”.
Commenting on the announcement, Claire Richardson of SYTT, says: “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.”
Greenhouse gas reductions
For each craft with engines over 75hp, the 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 that charter tenders will also be given the option to offset the actual or estimated fuel requirement.
“Powered watertoys, jetskis and sport-boats 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,” Mark Robinson of Yacht Carbon Offset, concludes.
Yacht Carbon Offset Limited is an independent UK company, which launched its specialist service in 2008. It provides a fully-documented service to counteract the carbon footprint of superyachts.
