Singapore Yacht Show goes ‘green’ with eco-friendly products on show

Singapore Yacht Show 2012 Singapore Yacht Show
The Singapore Yacht Show has attracted a wide range of high-end exhibitors that cater to the needs of every type of yacht owner and for any type of yacht. One growing trend that has been identified by many of the exhibitors is the desire of yacht owners to be increasingly environmentally friendly.

Presenting a multitude of eco-friendly yacht and product options, the Show will be a must-do for those HNWIs looking to take a green approach to yachting.



A sailing yacht is an obvious choice when it comes to low-impact yachting, but Royal Huisman’s 57.5m S/Y Twizzle is the stand out example of taking eco-consciousness to the next level.



The yacht, which is making her boat show debut at the Singapore Yacht Show, was specifically built to be environmentally friendly and is completely carbon neutral, offsetting all her carbon outputs. She was also one of the first yachts to agree to offset the emissions associated with her construction. Twizzle truly represents the way forward for owners looking to balance out the impact of a yacht upon the environment and oceans.

For those looking for a motoryacht, but still wanting to go green, Asian yard Kingship Marine offer plenty of expertise in this field. Their 44m Green Voyager project, which is nearing completion at their Chinese yard, represents true low-impact motor yachting.

Low in emissions and high in efficiency, she is in compliance with RINA’s Green Star Plus notation. As well as being available to discuss Green Voyager and other green projects, Kingship will also be exhibiting their latest launch, the beautiful 42m Star, at the Show.

Launched in 2012, and designed by Vripack, she is the biggest yacht the yard has launched to date, and features a light and minimalist interior. She will join Twizzle in the exhibiting fleet as another stunning example of the custom yacht building options available to potential owners.

For a compromise between a motor and sail, Ocean Quality Systems will be presenting their 60ft Frers-designed Explorer C-60 catamaran model to visitors. The model combines the stability and volume of a motoryacht, with the range and economic running of a sailing yacht.

With low environmental impact being a real goal for Ocean Quality Systems, the design offers a green option that includes lower emissions and fuel, and solar energy options that ensure enough power for critical systems at all times.

The Singapore Yacht Show runs from April 18-21, with limited exhibitor spaces remaining.
