Superyacht Tenders & Toys offers Yacht Carbon Offset option
12th September 2016
Superyacht Tenders & Toys is delighted to jointly announce, with Yacht Carbon Offset, the introduction of its Yacht Carbon Offset option for craft with engines over 75hp. In outfitting some of the world’s most prestigious yachts with tenders such as limousines, chase boats, SOLAS rescue boats and high-powered RIBs, Superyacht Tenders & Toys recognises that several of its clients would welcome an “environmental upgrade” and the chance to offset their greenhouse gas emissions. This new Yacht Carbon Offset option is a response to this.
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.
Claire Richardson of Superyacht Tenders and Toys, 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.”
Yacht Carbon Offset provides a fully-documented service to counteract the carbon footprint of superyachts.
