We have been working on the project for over a year in our spare time and we now need to raise the funds to make the Challenge happen! We need to buy kit, secure the charter of the Challenge vessel and hire or buy charging accessories.
Change will only happen if we work together. We've done the work... but we need your support to make this happen and drive change in the eMarine sector.
All donations to the Challenge will go to direct project costs. Any surplus will go to our three charities. These will be a charity local to us in the South West, the RNLI and the third will be the choice of one of our commercial Sponsors.
Any kit we buy which can be sold after the Challenge will be auctioned and all proceeds will go to the Charities.
This is a non-profit activity, no wages are being paid and all funds will be directed towards achieving our core objectives: raising the profile of the innovators and investors in the sector, building public awareness of products in the market, developing and sharing knowledge and skills, supporting marine charities and ultimately leaving a legacy for the future.
Donations from individuals
If you enjoy water based activities and spend time on the sea or at the beach you may be keen to reduce the noise pollution of traditional engines, or to reduce the impact of petrol spillage (which leaves that thin blue film on the surface), or you may be interested in reducing our dependency on petrol, or about underwater noise pollution and the impact on sea life.
All of these are good reasons to support the transition to a more sustainable future for leisure powerboating and to welcome the dawn of zero emissions propulsion.
You can donate any amount that you choose or contact us for more information.
If you would like to associate your name or brand with the Challenge then please look at our commercial sponsorship packages below.
If you have budget for charity, net-zero or sustainability activities, or if you can simply see the benefit in developing the sector, then do please consider supporting us through one of our media packages described below.
We would be delighted to include your logo on our merchandise, on our flags and banners and even on the Challenge vessel itself. Our premium sponsors will be entitled to name a waypoint on the route, to visit the boatyard and to step aboard the vessel for a ride, as well as joining us at the MDL Green Tech Boat Show in Ocean Village in Southampton on 21st - 23rd April 2023.
