    In today's world of yachting, green is the way to go. As yachts range farther for longer they must be more self sufficient, reliable and have safe ecological practices.

    For self-sufficiency yachts need reverse osmosis water makers to produce safe drinking water. Using a dockside water softener works well with green soaps and eliminates hard water stains and spotting.

    To distribute drinking water throughout the boat, UV sterilizers effectively destroy biological contaminants without using harmful chemicals. Filtering the water before the tap yields better tasting and safer water, too.

    Having great tasting and safe water from your yacht drinking water system means no more bottled water. Personalized reusable water bottles are used instead of trash producing plastic water bottles.

    In more and more cruising grounds, federal law demands safe ecological handling of sewage. Sewage treatment plants that are compact enough for most yacht engine rooms are available.

Eco Green Yachting Sewage Treatment ECOmar treats and discharges overboard disinfected sewage
in compliance with international regulations.
    More and more going green on a yacht makes sense. Having safe drinking water and being ecologically friendly on the water is a winner for everybody in yachting.
