New concept for sustainable marinas


[2019-03-15] We are happy to engage in a new project promoting boat owners to keep their boats on land when not used during the boat season.

Bessekrokens Marina at Björkö in the Gothenburg northern archipelago is a showcase to prove the business potential of a service that allows boats to be launched with short notice. This service offered by the marina makes boat life easier and more sustainable. The project is financed by a LOVA-grant, and funds from Region Västra Götaland. The aim is to support innovations that reduce the need for jetties in sensitive shallow water areas. Another environmental benefit is that this appraoch diminishes the need for antifouling paints and its negative effect on marine biodiversity.
