LANEVA BOATS WINS 2021 UIM ENVIRONMENTAL AWARD
- SPECIAL MENTION FOR LAGUNA TRASPORTI AND TEST 1 -
Monaco-based shipbuilder Lanéva Boats has won the prestigious 2021 UIM Environmental Award in recognition of its ongoing commitment to the production of fully electric luxury boats.
And while Lanéva collects the top honor, there are also Special Mentions for Environmental Benefit and Innovation for electric boat builder Laguna Trasporti and Italian technology company Test1.
Organized by the Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM), the world governing body for powerboat racing, the UIM Environmental Awards encourage UIM Member Federations, racing teams, boat builders, engine manufacturers, universities, research centers, scientists and many others to take positive steps and action to favor the protection of the environment and result in a reduction of the environmental footprint of motorboating activities.
The 2021 UIM Environmental Award winner, Lanéva has its roots in the work of German engineer Moritz von Jacobi who launched the world’s first electric boat in 1838 on the River Neva in St Petersburg, watched by Tsar Nicholas I, the first royal to see an electric boat in action.
