The Fog Warning is proud and pleased to be the first in the yachting industry to provide carbon-neutral yacht ownership to our clients.
We know that yachting provides you and your families with some of your most cherished experiences. Clearly, your quality time on the water directly depends upon the quality of your marine environment.
We’ve all become aware how that environment is changing due to climate change. We see it with rising water levels at our docks, and with more extreme weather patterns inshore and off. Most recently, the link between climate change and the rise and spread of pandemics has become increasingly clear.
We here at The Fog Warning feel a responsibility to do more to assure safe, quality yachting experiences for our owners, and for subsequent generations of yachtsmen and women. And we have a plan…
Buy a yacht, new or used, from The Fog Warning and we will provide you with a carbon-neutral ownership experience. Just send us your fuel receipts at the end of your boating year, and we will buy offsetting carbon credits to make up for your fuel use. What’s more, we will do this for as long as you own your boat. And of course if we sell your boat for you, this commitment extends to her next owner as well.
These credits will go towards programs that directly improve our marine environment. Our first partnership is with The Ocean Foundation’s Sea Grass Grow project. By planting and nurturing coastal sea grass acreage, shorelines are preserved and additional carbon is naturally absorbed.
The Future of our Industry
Please consider spreading the good word. In our experience, no one in this industry – not builders, dealers or marketers – has more collective power than yacht owners. And if in the end you choose to buy a yacht outside of The Fog Warning efforts, please consider asking that builder or dealer to follow The Fog Warning’s path. They can contact us directly for the easily-managed details.
