Imagine that yacht recycling is a fine idea and makes perfect sense. That the only thing missing is some solid, continuous initial funding. Which would allow the first specialised, sustainable yacht dismantling businesses to start up and get off the ground in terms of profitability. Where could that funding come from?

A Bank supporting “green”, sustainable businesses.
Governmental / EU / regional funding
Crowdfunding –  fascinating, citizen-powered tool to enable a quick, flexible start up.
Several crowd funding portals specialise in sustainable businesses.

Just like with computers or cars today, a vision for the future might also be to have yacht buyers pay a fee directly at the moment of a yacht’s acquisition. A fee which obviously should then also be directed to / reserved for sustainable dismantling and recycling businesses.

What do you think of the above? Let me know:
