AquaTech Eco Consultants has completed more than 150 seagrass restoration projects.

Yamaha Rightwaters said it helped secured an F200 outboard for AquaTech Eco Consultants, a group that focuses on coastal habitat restoration.

The outboard will power AquaTech’s 24-foot Carolina Skiff, which the group uses to conduct seagrass restoration projects along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, as well as the Caribbean.

“When boats run aground, they often leave prop scars and big holes,” said Beau Williams, AquaTech founder and habitat restoration expert, in a statement. “It’s our job to go in and restore these grounding scars by planting seagrass, which fosters the richest marine environments.”

“Marine habitat creation and restoration is one of the key focuses of Yamaha Rightwaters,” said Yamaha government relations senior specialist John O'Keefe. “By building and maintaining environments that promote healthy marine growth, we increase the available habitat needed for greater sustainability. AquaTech continues to make significant strides in Florida to rebuild damaged marine environments.”
