YachtTalk episode 11: The future of yacht propulsion

To keep yachting as we promote it on YachtTalk, the industry needs to take drastic steps to reduce its footprint. One of the key challenges is how to develop yachts with cleaner and more efficient propulsion systems. While hydrogen remains a focal point, there are plenty of effective short-term solutions to meet strict emissions targets. In this episode of YachtTalk, we take a look at cleaner alternatives, and address how we should fundamentally change the way we approach energy in yachting.
