Earlier this month, Island Pilot president Reuben Trane accepted the Ocean-Going Hybrid Mansura Award for the DSe Hybrid from London's Royal Thames Yacht Club.

Mansura Awards are given in five categories: Ocean-Going Hybrid; Inland Waterways Hybrid; All-Electric Craft Employing More Than One Source of Power; Hydrogen-Cell Craft and Prototypes and Trial Craft.

This is the first year the Ocean-Going Hybrid award has been given and the second year of presenting the Mansura Trophy to a selected company or builder seeking solutions to environmental challenges.

In presenting this award to Island Pilot, the judges commented that the DSe "is similar in concept to that of the original Hybrid yacht, Mansura."

Judging is based on a number of specific requirements and considerations are also given to ease and economy of manufacture, practicality of use for stated applications and market potential.
