Buying a SunSailer 7.0 is no different in terms of value than any other boat for the same purposes in terms of socio-economic activity. All boats cost money, but while some cost even more money without moving, ours saves incredibly, allowing large sums corresponding to the costs avoided with fuel and taxes to be set aside for the well-being of the persons and families owning these models.
One example is the professional activities of shellfish nurseryand fish farmers in general, who spend many thousands of euros per year in polluting fuels, that affect the environmental quality of the very ecosystem that sustains them, just to be able to work. Let’s imagine, based on real numbers, that in a small fishing community where there are 20 work boats operating during a year, they use an average of 5 thousand euros on fuel (number underestimated), which represents 100 thousand euros that are taken from the overall revenue of this community just for production factors. This could be totally avoided and reapplied to the well-being and development of families and places, increasing the profit margin of the revenue available for social development.
Concerning tourism and leisure the amount of additional work days is highly relevant. For instance, a couple or a small group of friends who want to go on boat trip during the low season often see their right denied for a simple reason, they “don’t pay” the fuel. With no fuel to pay, the operator can go out as often as wanted or needed, even if there’s a single passenger. All of the costs avoided with fuel can go towards improving your operation, creating a strategic on-line presence, investing in marketing, acquiring new boats, etc.
We believe that the growth of support for regional development, an low carbon economy and smooth/electric mobility will be very beneficial by allowing interested parties to submit financial support projects, with even more ambitious objectives than if they had purchased boats with their own funds, thus benefiting from the stimuli of a greener economy.
