This is the challenge won by the shipyard Dubourdieu following the call for proposals launched by the COBAS.

Emmanuel Martin, manager, and his partners: engineers and architects have developed a “Pinasse” of 15 meters, a reinterpretation of a traditional “Pinasse”, the GREENBOAT® with hybrid propulsion (thermal and electrical) and low draft. The Greenboat ® will transport on the Bassin d'Arcachon, fifty passengers and twenty bicycles, this “Pinasse” should be operational in 2013.

Summer 2012, a Greenboat ® Step 0, a “Pinasse” in maritime pins of 15 meters for private use, was launch.

It will be the first stage of the project Greenboat®, later Emmanuel Martin wishes to move towards a zero emission propulsion, to have an environmental impact minimized, thanks to his partner Symbiocell company specializing in hydrogen propulsion.

A beautiful project respectful of traditions.
