|Yacht Carbon Offset||Yacht Carbon Offset provides a clear, auditable way 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. Each project depends on the carbon funding, and Yacht Carbon Offset has Lloyds Register Quality Assurance Certification, so clients know that their action makes a real impact on net emissions.
The “pay as you go” service is calculated from the fuel quantities specified, whether the requirement is for a single charter or for the whole season’s cruising. There’s no on-board equipment and no long term obligation for the yacht.
Carbon Offsetting is of interest to clients wishing to take practical steps to minimise environmental impact, especially prominent individuals and those cruising in environmentally sensitive areas. The option can be included on the preference sheet or offered as an option for any charter client prior to arrival or on board.
Whether captain, broker, or central agent, simply tell us the fuel quantity you wish to offset and we will send you a no obligation quote. If you decide to go ahead we will allocate carbon savings equivalent to your carbon emissions and provide you with your Yacht Carbon Offset Certificate and, if you wish, a flag. The total cost is typically less than €200 per 10,000 litres of fuel.
Yacht Carbon Offset Limited is an independent UK company which launched its specialist service in 2008. It regularly works with leading charter yachts including Baton Rouge, Meamina, Mirage and Hyperion.

|Esthec||Esthec® was introduced in 2007 as a revolutionary decking material for the yacht building industry. While the mindset of the nautical industry was mainly focused on using natural materials such as teak in those days, Esthec® added a new dynamic by allowing architects and designers more freedom, both in terms of colour and design. Something that can be called absolutely ground-breaking. By also releasing shipyards from unpredictable price increases. By freeing users from the need for excessive, but necessary and time-consuming maintenance. And time has become an ever more precious commodity for everyone. At the same time, teak could be left unspoilt and continue to serve its original purpose. A forest abundant with teak trees is nothing less than one of Mother Nature`s iron lungs.
Esthec® Nautical Decking is a composite material which not only looks good, but it has greatly improved functional properties too. It is able to withstand the most severe weather conditions at sea, for instance, and it is extremely durable. It lasts for decades and requires very little maintenance. Esthec® does not warp like pvc or wood either, is splinter free, non-slip in both dry and wet conditions and feels comfortable to bare feet. Esthec® is available in a variety of colours and easy to install in any desired pattern, allowing complete freedom of design. Lines, circles, patterns, logos or a combination of colours. Esthec® owns all necessary properties to make a revolutionary difference to architects, the yacht building industry and boat owners.
