Superyacht Ecstasea, an 86m Feadship motor yacht, has introduced a policy of carbon offsetting her fuel. Yacht Carbon Offset has worked through the yacht’s Abu-Dhabi based managers Al Seer Marine to balance megayacht Ecstasea’s carbon footprint.
Al Seer’s Managing Director Alexander Drinkwater notes “Abu Dhabi is rapidly building its sustainable energy capability, and low carbon developments are a high priority for the Emirate. For the owners of yachts such as Ecstasea that choose the UAE as a home base, a practical response to the vessel’s greenhouse gas emissions makes perfect sense.”
Motor yacht Ecstasea’s Captain Lee Mann commented “Ecstasea takes pride in the highest standards of environmental performance, and a response to the yacht’s greenhouse gas emissions is part of this.”
Yacht Carbon Offset’s Managing Director Mark Robinson added: “Ecstasea is amongst the most impressive superyachts afloat, and we are delighted that her Owner has decided to balance her carbon footprint.”
Superyacht Ecstasea was built in 2004 by Feadship, designed by DeVoogt Naval Architects and Terence Disdale design architects. Motor yacht Ecstasea is registered in George Town. M/Y Ecstasea is a powerful and luxurious superyacht able to cruise at 22knots with a substantially higher maximum speed when driven by her combination of her 4 MTU Diesel engines and GE gas turbine.
