Finding The Best Satellite TV Solution For Your Yacht Apr 28

Emocean Marina Small Yachts Boats

The perpetual sound of waves lapping against the hull, the smell of fresh water or salt, cruising under the sun, bobbing and weaving across expanses of open water, taking a dip, dining at sea, or partying under the stars. It’s all an exquisite adventure on the yacht of your dreams.

Whether you rent one for a vacation cruise or you own one that takes you on various journeys, your love of scuttling over oceans and lakes is both an escape and a treasure. Even with all that the boating life offers, sometimes you need some visual entertainment in the form of moving pictures that aren’t moving past the stern.
Of course, there are plenty of DVD and Blu-ray players, as well as video game players that can keep you busy. But, if you’re on an extended journey, you aren’t going to want to spend the hours you’ll need when you get back to landlubbing reality to catch up on all your favorite shows. Or for those who actually live at sea on their yachts, you may be missing just about everything.

When you hear the word yacht, several thoughts come to mind: luxury…affluence…beautiful women sunbathing and sipping mojitos amidst the shimmering cerulean waters of some equatorial heaven.  The yacht has long been a symbol of the lavish lifestyle that money can bring.  Certainly the majority of middle America has not added this item to their holiday wish list.  But one descriptor that most certainly does not pop into your head is “eco-friendly”.  Somehow, this term does not seem synonymous with the absolute opulence that one associates with yacht ownership.  And yet, after environmentally sound buildings and cars, green yachts seem like the next logical step.

And in fact, there are already several eco-friendly options available (or soon to be available) for those seeking their own private luxury liner with an emphasis on the environmentally sound.  So how do these floating palaces go green?  Some, like the Independence 60 motor yacht (www.independencegreenyachts.com), do it old school (like millions of years old) by running on solar power (plus, the hull is made entirely of 100% recyclable aluminum).  Island Pilot LLC also utilizes solar power with their DSe Hybrid 12m (www.dsehybrid.com), although it can fall back on clean-ish options like diesel and electric when needed.
