Introduction of Grants

In a definitive step toward eco-conscious maritime practices, the Balearic Islands have introduced a transformative initiative: grants to refit boat propulsion systems. Starting in 2023, this innovative project offers substantial grants from the local government, specifically designed to enhance the environmental sustainability of boats across the archipelago. The genesis of this eco-conscious endeavour finds its roots in a collective awareness of environmental preservation, spurring various associations of companies in the Balearics to join forces. Trueworld, with their expertise in cutting-edge technology, particularly in the realms of renewable energy integration and eco-friendly systems, equips the initiative with the necessary tools to transform ambitious visions into practical, eco-conscious realities. Trueworld’s commitment to research, development, and implementation ensures that the initiative remains at the forefront of the green revolution.

Towards Sustainability 

The Grant is multifaceted, encompassing diverse categories to cater to the varied needs of boat owners. Of particular interest is where financial assistance extends up to an impressive 65% of the initial costs, with a maximum grant cap of 500,000 Euros. The grant was for three years, with a total fund of 15million, with now 10million left over the next two years. For boats smaller than 12 metres, the propulsion must be zero-carbon emission to qualify for grants. Larger vessels, exceeding 12 metres, are encouraged to adopt electric propulsion within the 12-mile coastal zone. 

How it works

The grants are not limited to a select few; they embrace a wide array of boats, including commercial, passenger and cargo vessels. Spanish flag vessels are eligible, providing they commit to a two year stay within the Balearic Sea. Grant recipients can seek expert guidance from organizations like Phoenix One, a key player in this transformative journey. From energy systems to propulsion and advanced monitoring technologies, Phoenix One offer expertise that transforms visions of sustainable seafaring into tangible reality. 

Phoenix One’s Role

At the core of this ground-breaking initiative lies Phoenix One’s proactive engagement in the comprehensive refitting of boats of any type or length. A fine example of their commitment to this green revolution is the noteworthy project involving the S/Y Galaxie, a 22-metre vessel that stands testament to the immense potential of sustainable refits. This transformative endeavour not only showcases Phoenix One’s technical expertise but also underscores their profound understanding of the intricate nuances of green marine technology.

Phoenix One’s contribution extends beyond the realm of practical transformations. They actively guide boat owners through the labyrinth of paperwork and documentation essential for securing the invaluable grants that facilitate these eco-friendly enhancements. 

A lucrative Opportunity 

Phoenix One places a significant emphasis on the financial advantages of incorporating dual motors and 16 batteries in attraction boats. These cutting-edge vessels not only offer an environmentally conscious solution but also present a strategic investment opportunity for businesses operating in the attraction boat industry. Embracing these advanced technologies enables companies to sail the seas sustainably, leading to both ecological preservation and substantial, enduring economic gains.
