The first truly sustainable sloop in the Low Countries

Duurzame Sloepen designs and builds sustainable sloops. The sloops are 3D printed from recycled material and are therefore completely circular. The boats have an electric motor for green energy. In addition, the boats are finished with various sustainable options from the floor (including cork or flexiteek), spray hoods (including PET bottles and Green Technology) to options such as an electric charging station, LED lighting and sustainable steering console, cushion sets and flag. The sustainability of each sloop is scientifically substantiated by TU Delft. At MASTERS EXPO Duurzaam Sloepen will be showing a scoop: The DS 680 MB. The first truly sustainable sloop in the Netherlands.

And the winner is ...

The criteria of the Hiswa election are as follows: a Dutch water sports company that has not existed for more than five years, is demonstrably successful with a new formula or enters a new target group, has a new boat model or markets an innovative product. .Duurzaam Sloepen won its prize because it is a new company with a new vision on water sports experiences in line with the major themes in this country; Innovation & sustainability. Sloepmakerij develops and produces a sustainable sloop line for a better world. A sustainable sloop is a 3D-printed sloop made from recycled material, which has been completed completely sustainably. The sustainability principle has been implemented extensively in both the company and the product line and the sloops are beautifully designed by Martin Bekebrede. A Life Cycle Assessment was carried out in collaboration with TU Delft and indicates that the sloops are truly sustainable. In addition to an innovative product and 3D printed production process, the company has a simple setup. Daughter, son-in-law and father are the driving forces.
