CONCEPT

VISION

To be a worldwide benchmark in standard models of electric solar boats.

MISSION

To build a multi-niche offering, from family leisure to specialised work.

STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES

To create an attractive range of models for personal and family use, from the utilitarian to the exclusive; To create standard models for tourism and fishing, and special models (services, research, monitoring…)

THE CHALLENGES WE WANT TO ANSWER

The four greatest challenges we have identified in terms of developing boats were the consumption of fossil fuels, the emission of greenhouse gases, the noise caused by internal combustion motors and the displacement wake provoked by boats with conventional motors.

These problems jointly represent the greatest threat to quality and environmental safety of protected areas such as the Ria Formosa, as well as other coastal areas, estuaries and inland waters that are very sensible to climate changes and where biodiversity, ecosystems and the quality of life are under pressure with the growing increase in the number of small

boats for work or recreation, where activities are either poorly regulated or monitored by the authorities.

The need to create a line with different boat models that move without using fossil fuels, that use low voltage electric motors that are virtualy silent and that glides like a sail boat, smoothly and provoking a minimal wake that doesn’t affect the banks or beaches or fish and shellfish nurseries is our response for creating affordable and user friendly alternatives that promote the sustainable use of protected areas with interest for nature  conservation and protection of traditional life styles.
