One of our guiding philosophies is that viewing the natural beauty of Monterey Bay and the Elkhorn Slough should have minimal impact on the wildlife and environment. A great step in that direction is the elimination or massive reduction of the noise and pollution caused by fossil fuel powered engines. Utilizing the ancient form of the canoe below the waterline, combined with modern design additions and materials, an extremely light, efficient catamaran can be built making it possible to power the vessel with electric motors.
Combining what is currently being developed in battery technology, materials, and manufacturing processes, we believe we can not only change the charter industry, but transform the boat building industry as well. One of the partners in the tour company has spent over 20 years developing not only the design, but also the methods involved to build these boats. Using a closed molded system that involves the most technologically advanced materials and emits relatively no VOC’s, boatbuilding is being resurrected in the Monterey Bay area creating jobs without the negative environmental impact.
