Built using their DANU boatbuilding material, which is fully recyclable and can replace fibreglass and carbon fibre, ExoTechnologies unveiled their first fully recyclable, high-performance leisure boat at the Southampton International Boat Show. The 11m vessel was built at the company’s Ultimate Boats boatyard in Glasgow to a design created by the renowned John Moxham.
ExoTechnologies CEO Shane Mugan said the company can have a huge impact on recreational and workboat boatbuilding by providing a green alternative to fibreglass-built boats, most of which end up in landfill. ‘We think this new M-Class craft is one of the best on the market for performance, safety and innovation. It has state-of-the-art Raymarine electronics and a top speed of 50 knots. The boat is ideal for families with its capacity for up to eight people and an operating range of 400 nautical miles.’
This latest venture into the leisure market represents another landmark for Ultimate Boats following a £7 million investment in research and development by their parent company ExoTechnologies.
