Eco Boats now agent for Soel Yachts
Eco Boats Australia Pty Ltd is pleased to announce its appointment as agent for Soel Yachts, a European designer & manufacturer of true solar-electric catamarans for use by tour operators, waterfront resorts and for inter-island transport.
Soel Yachts’ sustainable solar electric vessels provide the opportunity for tour operators, islands and resorts to become completely fossil fuel independent and energy autonomous. Their latest vessel, the SoelCat 12, is a unique boat with mobile power station capabilities, which is able of feeding excess energy back into the existing grid or providing power where no grid is available
Steven Mullie, founder of Eco Boats said although Australia is lagging behind other parts of the world when it comes to sustainability and e-mobility that it’s great to see how some commercial operators and resorts are taking direct action by cleaning up their act. Vessels operating in coastal waterways carry the biggest carbon-footprint so there is a unique advantage for tourism businesses who want to offer true eco-tourism.
The first SoelCat has been in operation for over 2 years at a resort in Tahiti and one only has to look at the pictures and video of this incredibly stylish craft to realise that apart from raising a resorts green credentials, the overall guest-experience will improve substantially compared to a typical traditional shuttle craft that most resorts and tour operators use to ferry their patrons around.
Soel Yachts has a comprehensive product range with vessels seating 12 – 30 passengers and can also tailor for custom requirements. With cruising speeds of 8 knots and top speeds of 14 knots and a range of up to 48 nautical miles at cruising speed from batteries alone, these craft are not to be underestimated and will perform on par with combustion engine driven craft of similar size without any noise and exhaust fumes and in comfort and style.
Eco Boats Australia has been supplying the most innovative electric boating products for over 10 years and has locations in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. For more information see Soel Yachts or phone 0414 061 795
