Benetti's Ocean Paradise yacht was recently awarded the Rina Green Plus prize, which is a prestigious award that goes to eco-friendly boats.
Marine services company Rina chose to award this new Italian luxury liner "as the year’s leading example of yacht constructors’ efforts to reduce the carbon footprints of their vessels."
Some of the green features of the 180' Ocean Paradise include an innovative system that reduces the spread of greenhouse gasses by reabsorbing them. As well, simple fixes like the coating on the yacht's hull cut down on water resistance and boost the fuel efficiency. This is an incredibly simple fix that could influence how other yachts are manufactured. For taking such a forward-thinking approach to the design of this sustainable super yacht, Benetti's award is well deserved.
