Glasgow-based Ultimate Boats (UB) was shortlisted for the ‘Environmental Initiative’ category of the METSTRADE Boat Builder Awards as a result of its pioneering use of a revolutionary sustainable technology and material in boatbuilding.
ExoMarineTM, the marine variant of DANUTM, was created by UB’s parent company, ExoTechnologies, as an alternative to glass reinforced plastic (GRP) with the goal of combatting the growing problem of old boats being disposed of via landfill, with an estimated 250 million kilos of GRP being dumped in Europe each year.
The Environmental Initiative award, sponsored by Confindustria Nautica, recognises boat builders who have made a significant contribution towards sustainability.
The award recognises examples such as recycling initiatives, lifecycle awareness and support of environmental improvement projects.
The Boat Builders Awards ceremony was held at the METSTRADE show in Amsterdam on 17 November 2021.
