Book tickets to MDL’s Green Tech Boat Show and win

With less than three weeks to go until MDL Marinas’ Green Tech Boat Show (19-20 June), there’s still time for visitors to book their free tickets.

But a ticket to the show doesn’t just permit entry to this new event at Queen Anne’s Battery marina, it also enters the ticket holder into a prize draw to win an annual membership to MDL’s first eco-friendly gym, MDL Fitness Plymouth.

Specifically designed for boat owners wishing to make the switch to greener options, the Green Tech Boat Show will host over 25 exhibitors displaying innovative, green marine based technology and equipment.

“At MDL, we’re fully committed to a cleaner, greener future,” says Tim Mayer, MDL’s sales and marketing director. “Over the last few years, we’ve been delighted to watch the scales tip from the minority aiming to be environmentally responsible to the majority.

“We also know that boat owners want to see the revolution that’s taking place in their work environments reflected in their leisure time. But it’s confusing and difficult for people to unpick the sustainable options now available to them.

“This is why we’ve put together an event that presents the information in a practical way, showcased next to other green technologies, allowing consumers to understand what is on offer.”

Visitors to the show can step onboard a whole fleet of electric powered craft including:

  • the 100% electric, zero emissions Pixii built from recycled material
  • RS Electric Boats’ Pulse 63 Electric RIB
  • e-Voyager, the UK’s first sea-going electric ferry,
  • an Oyster 35 and Contessa 34, both converted from diesel power to electric by North Devon Marine
  • a fully electric superyacht tender from Vita Yachts
  • Bounty’s End, a replica of the 23ft wooden boat used by Captain Bligh following the mutiny on the Bounty, now fitted with an 8kw electric motor which made it the first commercially coded electric passenger boat in Plymouth.

“The best thing about the show is you’re going to meet a lot of like-minded people who are fascinated with how to do something, how to make something better,” says Charlie Hall from Pixii Boats. “So, a lot of the innovators and originators I think are going to be at this boat show, which I’m really excited about because there’s going to be so many good ideas flying about.”

Jon Partridge from RS Electric Boats comments: “We’re really excited about going to the show, showing off what we’ve created, talking to visitors all day long about the tech that we’ve created and how it would work within their environment. Whether that’s a leisure or commercial user, we have something for everyone.”

Complementing the range of boats on display is a selection of marine companies that are developing green technologies to enhance boating experiences, including marine charging specialist Aqua SuperPower, CDT Marine, electric outboard engine specialist ePropulsion, Fischer Panda with its customised electric drive solutions, Lynch Electric Motors, Marine Energy Systems, and Vulkan Industries.

In addition, the RNLI Water Safety Team will be offering free lifejacket checks, The Green Blue will be promoting sustainable boating practices, and ARC Marine will be welcoming visitors to its stand to introduce its carbon neutral Reef Cube® that can be used to rehabilitate reef ecosystems.

Tickets are free but must be booked in advance via MDL’s website.
