In accordance with recent news reports Wind Farm Boats have been appearing all over Long Island. It is amazing the lengths companies will go to with regard to marketing their product, as these new “wind farm” vessels are not only stunningly beautiful but extremely expensive and some of the new models are priced in the multimillion range! You may be asking yourself “what is a Wind Farm Boat”? Or “How did Wind Farm Boats get their title?”
A Wind Farm Boat is simply described as any boat that is constructed entirely or primarily utilizing on-site wind power. The use of this technology on-site rather than off-site has been around for a while and has been implemented by many large manufacturing companies in order to reduce manufacturing costs as well as improve employee productivity. Wind power can also reduce your fuel consumption and emissions while reducing noise pollution. One of the primary reasons that these new vessel designs have become so popular is due to the fact that in most instances it is not feasible for a shipyard in the United States to construct these new high-tech ships using traditional methods such as anchor roll and capstan.
