At last, boot again – the relief was clearly noticeable in the water sports community and among the Düsseldorf trade fair organizers (see our News). On the Monday of the fair, the Ocean Tribute Award 2023 of the Prince Albert II Foundation, the German Maritime Foundation and boot Düsseldorf was presented to Innovation Yachts – for their world’s first completely recyclable and and sustainable catamaran made of composite material for series production.

It was just one of the highlights of the (after Corona) now finally running again boat show boot in Düsseldorf – on the occasion of the glamorous Blue Motion Night, which traditionally takes place in the Superyacht Hall, the company Innovation Yachts was awarded the Ocean Tribute Award 2023 on Monday evening, January 23.

The Prince Albert II Foundation, the boot Düsseldorf and the Deutsche Meeresstiftung support people, institutions, associations, research facilities and projects in their commitment to marine conservation and have been awarding the 20,000 euro prize annually at boot Düsseldorf since 2018.

“The “ocean tribute” award as a marine conservation prize is particularly close to all our hearts. The cleanliness of oceans and waters is more topical than ever and the protection of our seas is of enormous importance to each and every one of us,” says Frank Schweikert, Chairman of the German Ocean Foundation.

Is this what the future of boat building looks like? Innovation Yachts has unveiled the first fully recyclable and sustainable composite catamaran

Shipyard Innovation Yachts has designed and manufactured the world’s first fully recyclable and sustainable composite catamaran for mass production. The IY LBV35 is the first model in a new series of sustainable and fully recyclable boats and is electrically powered by solar energy as well as Hydrogenator.

As an optional extra, this catamaran has a “marine cleaning system,” which means it can lower the trampoline in front when sailing to collect floating trash. In addition, the company also guarantees to buy back all building materials (vulcanized fiber, balsa wood (FSC) & biological epoxy resin) from the customer in case of damage or at the end of the product life cycle.

Laudator Hannes Jaenicke announced the result from the jury and the public vote. The popular German actor has been involved in marine and species protection for many years and has often gone public with his concerns at boot in Düsseldorf.

“We have made the United Nations’ sustainability target our guiding principle: the aim is to preserve oceans, seas and marine resources in terms of sustainable development or to restore what has been destroyed. As long as waters and marine habitats are in danger, we will work to protect them,” says boot CEO Petros Michelidakis.
