Green Power

Berthon are able to supply and fit wind generators, hydro generators, solar panels and fuel cells. The continual development of new technologies means that the creation of ‘green’ energy should be seen as an investment that will ultimately cut costs, as well as reduce your carbon footprint.

“Greener cruising is here today. It should be considered and implemented aboard all serious cruising yachts for the benefits that it brings, both to the planet and the cruising experience itself. Not to be underestimated is the immense pleasure that comes from leading this wonderful lifestyle with such a minimised carbon footprint.”

Steve Dashew, FPB yacht designer
