Innovation for building the sustainable boat of tomorrow

“To become the pioneer in the environmental transition of the marine industry…” This is the major objective that the Fountaine Pajot Group has set itself for the coming years with its Odysséa 2024 business plan.

To achieve this goal, the shipyard is counting on a collective awareness and energy, driven by all its stakeholders: its Owners, its Staff, its Suppliers, and even Experts in energy transition or in research and development. It will seek to create low-carbon and ideally zero-emission cruise boats and scenarios by 2030.

Managing the life cycle of our boats

An in-depth study of our business using the internationally recognised GHG protocol has revealed that 80% of the carbon footprint comes from the operational phase of the boat and 20% from its production. Managing the life cycle of Fountaine Pajot Sailing Catamarans and Motor Yachts as so as Dufour Yachts, through research and innovation, will enable us to significantly limit our impact on the environment and respond to the growing commitment of boat Owners to preserve the oceans.

“If we want to continue to enjoy all that the oceans have to offer, we need to act now.”


Sailing Yachts, Catamarans and Motor Yachts that are more sustainable

Fountaine Pajot & ODSea Lab are working on more virtuous and autonomous energy production while cruising, by pooling solar, wind and hydro-generation technologies.
The shipyard is also working on optimising resources by developing more efficient solutions that are less energy hungry but offer equal or even greater comfort. For the most efficient use of energy on board, Fountaine-Pajot yachts are equipped with intelligent technology featuring an interactive tool illustrating how the boat balances energy between propulsion and domestic needs. Today, propulsion from internal combustion engines represents a major part of the carbon footprint of a boat’s life cycle. Fountaine Pajot is therefore working to decarbonise the use of its boats. In 2022, the Aura 51 will become the first electric catamaran, using green energy and electric propulsion. The teams and experts mobilised with ODSea Lab are working on the development of electric motors for boats, coupled with large renewable energy storage capacity and in the future, fuel cells capable of powering our boats using hydrogen. The Samana 59 will be the first prototype to feature this hydrogen propulsion technology. Two projects that are seeking to revolutionise leisure boating. To push our environmental policy even further upstream, we are working with our principal suppliers to considerably reduce the carbon footprint of parts and equipment that will be installed and used on our boats by 2030. This involves developing more committed specifications, by reducing the amount of transport in the supply chain on the one hand, and on the other, the use of recycled and/or bio-sourced or of materials that are recyclable.

Respecting and preserving the #Oceans and marine eco-system, all together!
