The SEA Index ® Superyacht Eco Association is pleased to welcome new corporate member MEYER YACHTS.

MEYER YACHTS’ objective is to build climate neutral yachts with alternative and renewable fuels. Testing – fuel cells is the next milestone in the development of MEYER Yachts’ climate-neutral yachting solutions.

MEYER YACHTS, part of the MEYER Werft group, wishes to encourage the SEA Index initiative by contributing their long- standing technical sustainability expertise towards the development of the SEA Index ® CO2 emissions calculating tool for superyachts.

Bernard Meyer Chairman of the Meyer Group comments:
“MEYER YACHTS aims to design and build the greenest yachts in the world. On this mission, membership of SEA Index is the next logical step. We look forward to making the world of yachts more sustainable and attractive for generations to come.”

Bernard d’Alessandri, the SEA Index’s President, comments:
“We are very pleased to welcome MEYER YACHTS as new corporate member of the SEA Index. We look forward to seeing their longstanding ship engineering expertise translate into the superyacht sector while focusing on sustainable advanced technologies. This new SEA Index support is another encouraging sign from the superyacht industry transitioning towards better energy efficiency, and we look forward to collaborating with MEYER YACHTS to mitigate emissions in the yachting sector.”

The SEA Index ®  yacht comparison tool quickly assesses the carbon intensity (CO2 emissions per gross tonne/ per hour) of motor yachts over 40m based on the installed power of their engines and generators. The pioneering robust & easy to use tool, a first in the industry, includes the typical operating profile of a yacht (time cruising, manoeuvring and at berth or at anchor). A possibility to rate hybrid and battery propulsion systems. Furthermore, innovative auxiliary power features can also be accounted for.
