Caribbean Yacht Charter – Go Green to Save the Blue

Posted on

ECO-FRIENDLY PRACTICES

An association of charter brokers has announced an award to recognize luxury sailing charter vessels who adopt eco-friendly practices.

SAVE THE BLUE

The  Charter Yacht Brokers Association International (CYBA) has launched the 2012 “Save the Blue” awards, as a continuation of the organization’s green initiative to reduce plastic water bottle waste by encouraging yachts to produce their own onboard purified drinking water.

YACHTS GO GREEN

Vessels available for charter can qualify for the award by meeting at least seven of the thirty criteria that CYBA has listed in an online survey.  Many of the criteria are simple to implement and include green practices such as using biodegradable cleaners, buying sustainable seafood, and using recyclable shopping bags. 

COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS

“By undertaking a few simple eco-friendly practices, the fleet of yachts for hire in the Caribbean can make a dramatic impact on the island environment.  Our Team commends CYBA’s efforts.”        
CYBA is hopeful these awards inspire others. For instance, captains, crews and owners. The association wants them to take more steps. In specific, to go green.  Qualifying vessels are recognized at the upcoming charter industry winter shows in St. Thomas, Tortola, and Antigua. 
Special mention will be given.  Specifically, to the “Most Eco-friendly Sailing Yacht”
