Meamina Introduces Yacht Carbon Offset
Meamina Introduces Yacht Carbon Offset

Meamina is using Yacht Carbon Offset’s service to counteract the greenhouse gas impact of all fuel delivered to the yacht.  This active 59m Benetti superyacht is exploring ways to improve environmental performance in all areas of operation.

Meamina has completed another busy charter season in the Caribbean and is back chartering in the Mediterranean for the summer. Meanwhile, Yacht Carbon Offset is matching the greenhouse gas emissions from her engines & generators, tonne for tonne, with equivalent emissions reductions from verified green energy projects.

Steve Barker, Meamina’s Captain commented: “Motor Yacht Meamina is evolving this year, operating in a more environmentally responsible way.  Without compromising our very high chartering standards, we will re-evaluate many areas of daily operations, both behind the scenes and in providing greener choices to guests on-board. Though we already do seek to be fuel efficient, the fuel demands of a powerful, luxurious Yacht like Meamina are vast. So it is great we can respond effectively and economically to her greenhouse gas impact with Yacht Carbon Offset.”

Yacht Carbon Offset’s Mark Robinson said: “We’re delighted to welcome Meamina as the latest superyacht to counteract her carbon footprint. This is increasingly important to many owners & charterers, especially those that are high profile or who are concerned about the impact that their lifestyle may have on the climate. Meamina will be using a Gold Standard renewable energy project in Turkey for her initial carbon offset programme.  This project is dependent on carbon funding, so Meamina’s action makes a real difference. It is lovely to work with this elegant yacht and we thank all on board for their decision to proceed.”

Yacht Carbon Offset provides a fully-documented service for those that own and enjoy the world’s leading superyachts and has Lloyds Register Quality Assurance Certification. For details and to take action to balance your yacht’s greenhouse gas emissions, visit
