New at Miami International Boat Show, YANMAR Marine International (YMI) reveals innovative electric sail drive technology as the company steps up its energy transition plans in response to customer demand and today’s environmental challenges.
YMI will demonstrate its commitment to deliver sustainable propulsion solutions for U.S. boaters, showcasing the YANMAR E-sail drive concept via a video display on the stand and highlighting the new YMI Energy Transition Strategy statement, which formalizes ongoing strategy and planning towards decarbonization.
Key areas of commitment include the development, evaluation and commercialization of systems using low-carbon fuels such as HVO, as well as electrification and hybridization, with a focus on energy efficiency and optimalization.
YMI’s new strategy operates in coordination with the YANMAR GREEN CHALLENGE 2050, an ambitious company-wide goal to fundamentally transform its business by eliminating greenhouse gas emissions and harmful substances in all activities, manufacturing, and products by 2050.
Kevin Carlan, President, YANMAR Marine International Americas, said: “We are looking forward to revealing our development of a plug and play electric sail drive propulsion system on a video on the booth at Miami Boat Show. This technology is just one aspect of our commitment to deliver value for customers and partners in the years ahead with environmentally responsible, low carbon propulsion solutions. By exploring and progressing new technologies, we will help our customers reduce their carbon footprint and offer solutions that enable a new level of excitement, experience and comfort onboard.”
