Yachting Ventures is to show the latest marine cleantech products as part of an Innovation Zone at the Abu Dhabi International Boat Show (ADIBS).
The Innovation Zone, sponsored by Borrow A Boat, will host 15 start-ups from electric boats to smart, connected electric products.
“This is an opportunity for some incredible brands to showcase their products,” said Matt Ovenden, founder of Borrow A Boat. “We are excited to be part of making this happen to bring through innovation in the boating industry.”
Among the 15 companies exhibiting in the zone are ZeroJet that designs and manufactures electric jet propulsion systems for small boats, providing sustainable and reliable boating. The company’s plug and play system has been developed to make it easy for boatbuilders to install and provide a quiet ride on the water.
Navier is an American company that has developed an electric hydrofoiling boat that can recharge in an hour and fly 4ft off the water for more than 75 nautical miles.
The Silent Power will present ‘The Icon’, a collaboration between Tyde and BMW, for electric marine travel.
Self-sustainable solar electric boats from Elvene provide the benefits of an electric boat without the need for a charging structure.
Also in the zone will be electric outboard engines from UK based RAD Propulsion with its first product to market, the RAD 40 and fast-charging systems from Evoy.
There will also be a range of water sports including the Audi e-tron eFoil board from Aerofoils and gaming experiences on water from Floating Padel.
Other technologies on show will be those from AnchorGuardian that provides real-time intelligence during the anchoring procedure to the captain and crew and Charge Made Good, a free, open-source app that can make most sailing vessels fossil fuel free with faster transit times, unlimited range and more energy aboard for comfort.
In addition, Washdown, founded by ex-superyacht crew will show its cleaning through natural biotech exterior and interior cleaning solutions.
ADIBS will take place from 9 – 12 November 2023.
