ElectroSea product enters superyacht market; Barcelona Boat Show cancelled; ABYC rolls out additional distance learning resources.

ElectroSea’s Clearline System came on the market last year and obviated the need for expensive descaling services, which often have to be performed a few times in year in warmer waters. The systems quickly became part of standard and option build sheets for more than 45 builders, including Azimut, Marlow, Princess, Riviera and Viking. It’s newest model takes the company into superyacht territory: the CL-2000 is focused on yachts larger than 90 feet LOA. “CL-2000 provides owners of superyachts with ElectroSea’s advanced technology to protect their vessel against unwanted marine growth in seawater pipes and strainers,” said ElectroSea CEO and president Daniel Cosentino in a statement

The Barcelona International Boat Show will not hold what would’ve been the 59th edition of the event in 2020. “In light of the situation generated by Covid-19, Fira de Barcelona, after reaching an agreement with ANEN [National Association of Nautical Companies], has decided to postpone…,” organizers said in a statement. “In view of the current complex and uncertain situation, its potential evolution over the coming months and the restrictions on international mobility, submitted a proposal to move this year's event to 2021.” 

The American Boat & Yacht Council published a student workbook to bolster the ABYC marine service technology program with additional tools during the pandemic — including a variety of homework exercises, hands-on job assignments and links to video demonstrations. “We have a great network of educators who are in need of a wide range of teaching resources and who are exchanging ideas on how to enhance their student’s learning experience, in and outside the classroom,” said ABYC education director Dave Broadbent in a statement.
