Clearwater Rating Ltd
A not for profit company.
Clearwater Rating addresses a need in the leisure marine market for an objective, independent assessment of the environmental credentials of a boat or superyacht.
The Clearwater Rating system has been carefully researched to take into account environmental legislation and realistically incorporated best practice. It enables a manufacturer or owner to work though clearly defined steps that examine the impact of a leisure vessel upon air and water quality, energy consumption, noise pollution, seabed, foreshore, wildlife and global resources. One of seven ratings, from Bronze through Gold, can be earned.
Whilst passionate about crafting the very best sailing holidays in the world’s top sailing grounds, Sunsail is equally passionate about ensuring it looks after our oceans, wildlife and communities.
Sunsail has three pillars of sustainability it is working towards: eradicating single use plastic; using environmentally friendly products and processes; educating customers in how to be more sustainable when sailing.
Globally, Sunsail has invested significantly in the development of its fleet, with optimised hull and engine designs for efficient high performance sailing, solar power and water makers, all helping to minimise its “yacht-print”.
By providing responsible and sustainable holidays its goal is to encourage change across the sailing industry.
