Free Special Seminar: The Carbon Conundrum
Wednesday, October 4 | 8:30 – 10 AM

When it comes to fossil fuel consumption, today’s thriving boatbuilding industry is best defined by two extremes: At one end of the spectrum, designers and engineers load today’s production center consoles with five or six outboards of 12 cylinders each to indulge a market hungry for horsepower; at the other, teams of investment-fueled innovators push the potential of electric propulsion and hydrogen fuel by building clean-lined, lightweight, carbon fiber, foiling prototypes that promise sustainable if not thrilling performance. Our likely future lies somewhere in between, but to reach it boat designers, builders, and buyers will need to reconcile those divergent realities. Undoubtedly there will be successes and casualties along the way.
