Gulf Craft Explores Emission-Free Yachting with Hydrogen-Powered Superyachts

In a bold step towards sustainability, Gulf Craft, a renowned global boat and yacht manufacturer, is delving into the realm of hydrogen technology to propel its superyacht fleet into a cleaner future.

Partnering with H2-Enterprises, Gulf Craft is on the path to developing a zero-emissions Majesty yacht. This innovative endeavor could see the use of a Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier (LOHC) energy system, a cutting-edge technology that H2-Enterprises has been refining over the last 13 years, tailored specifically for powering superyachts.

A Pioneering Force Speaks

Michael Stusch, Executive Chairman and CEO of H2-Enterprises underscored the urgency of reducing CO2 emissions to meet climate change goals. He mentioned, “Our LOHC technology is suitable for replacing the current carbon-based pollutant-contaminated CO2 and NOX based energy system.”

If successfully implemented, the introduction of a LOHC-based hydrogen-powered yacht would signify a groundbreaking move towards decarbonization in the yachting industry. Known for disrupting the industry, Gulf Craft and H2-Enterprises reaffirm their commitment to innovation.

This pioneering project aims to revolutionize the yachting sector by prioritizing clean energy technologies and sustainable design solutions. Stay tuned as Gulf Craft charts a new course towards emission-free luxury on the high seas.
