Marina Pods – the innovation that gives you access to renewable energy on the water

Postby serge_niel » Sun Dec 16, 2018 8:37 pm

One of my passions is clean energy and sustainable solutions, and I am excited to be able to inform everyone about the exciting innovation of Marina Pods. The Marina Pod concept is designed to revolutionize the global marina industry.

"Clean Energy" Marina Pods have been conceived and designed to provide ‘on-demand’ power and water from fully renewable sources to visiting yachts.



Today’s world is increasingly focused on reducing the use of non-renewables.

What a lovely idea ... For Greece /Med /Far East?
I can't see them surviving F6-7 SW followed by F7-8 W or NW later in a normal West of UK environment? Or atlantic swell getting near them. The Caribbean application might just be OK on the west side, but there you would find them converted by the locals to shopping bazaars! or Bars :D

Just been given rather short shrift by the 'Management' who were quick to defend their "wave screen"

Ah well - perhaps we should get one installed in Pullers to complement the existing pontoon structures that are in place?

This looks like a suitable upgrade for the island-pontoon comunity in Mahon, except I can't see the clotheslines.

Don't start giving ideas to money grabbing capitalists. We don't need another Craobh type development, I was going to say on the West Coast, but I mean anywhere.

The fact that Craobh went bust twice probably acted as a bit of a disincentive to repeat the idea. It seems to be doing quite well now though and the yard is almost full of winter lay-ups with quite a few others still afloat. I have to say that as a customer I find it convenient, despite the oddness of building a simulation of an East Neuk fishing village on the West Coast.

Nothing wrong with Groovee- Craobhee!

We might be living there soon if this house sells!
