The Clean Superyacht & Marina Campaign

The Clean Superyacht & Marina Campaign has been set up to investigate current facilities in worldwide Superyacht marinas. The campaign initiates a conversation with marina operators to determine how current facilities and contracts can be enhanced to cover comprehensive eco facilities.

During his day job running Superyacht Rubbish, founder of the campaign, David Gates has spoken to hundreds of operational crew. Feedback from the crew has proven to be the same, again and again! 

3 main issues have emerged as areas to be urgently addressed:

  • The marina does not have recycling bins/facilities.
  • If the marina has recycling facilities, sometimes one lorry comes and mixes up the recycling. Leaving many crews wondering why they bother to sort in the first place!
  • Marina waste management contracts tend to be private. Hence no one knows where and how their waste is being processed.

In addition to recycling and general waste management, the campaign also looks at black/grey water facilities and shore power generation.

The key aims of the Campaign are to focus on Communication, Responsibility & Traceability
