OUR ACTIONS IN FAVOUR OF THE ENVIRONMENT :
• OUR FLEET :
Our fleet is exclusively composed of catamarans, and we therefore give priority to wind propulsion.
Our vessels are designed according to anti-pollution standards.
They allow a very high stability and a low disturbance in the laminar flow: less wake, no creation of waves that can disturb other boats on the water, and less friction on the water, which improves propulsion and therefore limits fuel consumption when using the engine. Our boats are equipped with small engines with a very low fuel consumption (2 engines of 180 HP for the 50 tons light vessel, E-colorato and 2 engines of 48 HP for the habitable catamarans) This year we have acquired a 100% electric catamaran.
• EQUIPMENT ON BOARD :
We use biodegradable corn-starch tableware and reusable glasses on board. All the cleaning products on board are non-harmful and anti-pollution. Some of our catamarans are equipped with solar panels and have waste bins for selective sorting.
Each of our vessels is equipped with black and grey water tanks. This year we have doubled the volume of Ecolorato's black and grey water tanks in order to have a better autonomy in the treatment of this dirty water. These tanks are unique in the Old Port.
• APPROVAL FROM THE CALANQUES NATIONAL PARK :
Our fleet has the approval of the Calanques National Park which regulates access to the protected area. We carry a lot of passengers on board a single vessel, which reduces the number of small boats and motorboats. We also pay a tax on each ticket sold, thus allowing our passengers to participate in the protection of this protected natural area.
• WE SUPPORT ASSOCIATIONS WORKING FOR THE PRESERVATION OF THE OCEANS :
We regularly lend our maxi-catamaran to various associations. For example, we hosted the press conference of the Plastic Odyssey association, whose mission is to reduce plastic pollution in the oceans and poverty in the world. We also take part each year in a clean-up of the sea and the Phocaean coast by collecting waste.
• CABIN CRUISES :
In order to offer an alternative to the extremely polluting big cruise ships, we propose cabin rentals during cruises on board our small catamarans.
