Going Green with Ortomarine

You may already have noticed our refreshed website? In line with the Government’s Clean Maritime Plan, which states that by 2025 it is expected that all new vessels being ordered for use in UK waters (including the Inland Waterways) will be designed with zero emissions propulsion capability, we have taken the decision that all new customer orders accepted from now, will be for boats equipped with some form of electric propulsion. 

Our goal is to build environmentally friendly boats that both significantly reduce the vessel’s “carbon footprint” and create a quieter, cleaner and more natural boating experience. We appreciate that “Going Green” currently incurs a higher cost, potentially deterring some customers, but we are confident that as demand for electric propulsion increases, more solutions will be developed and prices will become more competitive.
