Sustainable Environmentally-friendly Advanced-Composite Zero-Emission Boats

The SEABOAT project will generate blue growth in boat manufacturing and ensure that European SMEs are the world leaders in the production of advanced composite boat hulls by introducing a novel boat hull manufacturing technology, Composite Powder Epoxy Technology (C-PET).

Conceived with technology developed for aerospace and renewable energy applications, C-PET is an innovative, high-performing and cost-effective advanced composite manufacturing technology aimed at the marine recreational boating segment. It will lower the cost of boat hulls by 30% by employing a cutting-edge manufacturing process that eliminates Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) during production and leads to a reduction of hull weight by 45%. This, in turn, enables the battery-powered boats to compete with fuel-powered alternatives by reducing their operational costs by 60% and greenhouse emissions from power generation to zero.
