Orange is the New Green - Part 3

Published January 29th, 2021 by Bernardo

This is part 3 of a series. You can read part one here and part two here.

Nautical Ventures, since October 2016, has been recognized as ‘Orange is The New Green.’

What do we mean by that? Nautical Ventures is leading the charge in the retail sector by searching out and acquiring new product lines committed to creating a harmonious balance between nature and nautical. The push for similar advances in green power and construction has been going on in the marine industry for quite some time, with varying degrees of accomplishment depending on the product.

Nautical Ventures is your official Electric Boat and Electric Water Sports headquarters for Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. We can help you navigate the ins and outs of pairing the right electric motor to your electric boat. We’ve been helping boaters in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa Bay, Palm Beach, and Sarasota stay on the water with trouble-free enjoyment for over 30 years.

Roger Moore, CEO of Nautical Ventures, is no stranger to the environmental cause. While living in his hometown of San Francisco, he owned a water purification company. He currently holds several patents for water purification processes. Additionally, he and his wife Samantha circumnavigated the globe on their 66’ motor-sailor covering 42,000 nautical miles over a span of 13 years. To say that Roger understands the cause and effect of this movement would be an understatement. His research into the brands actively promoting a green planet has unveiled the following products.

Advantages of Electric Motorboats and Water Toys

Let’s first have a look at the advantages of using electric motorboats for the environment. There are many types of powerboats based on their engine type. Diesel engines, gasoline engines, electric motors, and wind sail; all can conveniently be used to power a boat. However, electric motors stand out as the preferred means of powering boats today due to their zero-emission and low-noise performance. This in turn makes them popular and desirable. There are many benefits that you will get if you fit your boat with an electric motor today.

Electric motorboats run quietly, as opposed to their diesel and gasoline counterparts that produce a lot of noise when in use. Since the electric motors don’t have a combustion system, the only sound they produce is from a rotating rotor. It is because of the silent operation that passengers are able to enjoy their conversations as normal during trips. In addition to a quiet system, the electric motors don’t produce exhaust emissions. Therefore, here are the offered products by Nautical Ventures considered green and are safe for the environment.

Alfastreet Marine Electric Boats from Slovenia

If there is a boat equivalent to the automotive phenomenon of Tesla, it would be Alfastreet Marine from Slovenia. With models ranging from 18’ to 23’, they offer both displacement and planing hulls – a first in this category, with enough power to pull a water skier. Alfastreet Marine prides itself upon boutique boat production of recognizable design, which is a mixture of traditional and modern elements with perfected innovative and useful solutions. We want our buyers to enjoy using our boats carefree for a long period of time. Therefore, we listen to their wants and needs, enabling them to get the boat of their dreams!

Our relationship does not end when the boat is sold, as our technical support is always available to them. At Alfastreet Marine we develop unique technical solutions, to improve performance, stability, and safety without making compromises. The boats themselves are nothing short of spectacular, with timeless retro style lines meeting hi-tech innovative details. Push a button and the electric hydraulic top used to cocoon the spacious open deck becomes a functional hardtop. When closed, the boat is sealed shut. High-quality components are used throughout, and power options include electric, gas, and hybrid motors.

FRIB Inflatable / Foldable Tenders

While serving as an officer with the British Special Forces, Steve Bruce came up with the idea for a better rigid inflatable boat that relies on stealthy electric power for an efficient propulsion system. But his idea didn’t stop there, he also wanted to make it compact, easy to stow, portable, and versatile. It is easy to row, easy to stow, safe, and fast with an electric engine. Space-saving in a boat, vehicle, or motorhome, take it anywhere in the world to discover distant waters. They are used in rescue organizations, by firefighters and EMTs, and military operations that need a boat with small dimensions and quickly inflates in an emergency.

The F-RIB can be assembled and inflated in less than 5 minutes with no hassle or extra parts to worry about. Simply fit the two bolts and inflate. Unlike their soft bottom cousins, these compact inflatable boats have a rigid fiberglass hull making them very resistant to wear and tear.

No oil enters the water from a leaking lubrication system. They have an exemplary carbon footprint. There is no smell, no noise. Torqeedo electric engines set out to make a high-performance electric outboard propulsion system to combat the increasing restrictions on combustible engines.
