Do you have a friend that is an environmentally conscious billionaire with $30 million to spend? How about suggesting the first ever "Green" Superyacht?!

This environmentally-conscious superyacht is the first of its kind. It lets the wealthy sail the great seas without ruining our planet, all thanks to an eco-friendly design and a hybrid engine.

The Columbus Sport 130’ Hybrid is powered by a Toyota Prius style mixture of electricity and diesel that dramtically reduces the ships emissions. It also has a bilge water separator to stop olly deposits spreading out to sea, even though it is not required by law.

The makers of the Superyacht claim to have made the first environmentally friendly yacht which lets you enjoy the comforts of its luxurious deco without damaging the planet. But they have not missed out any of the glamour for the $30 million vessel. It has three plush cabins and a deck dubbed "the beach club", big enough for eight people to relax and take in the sea views.

The Superyacht is currently being built by Italian boat builders Palumbo and will be ready in 2012 when the full specifications will be released.

WP Group is pleased to see the marine industry make a conscious effort to keep our planet green. For those who cannot afford the luxurious Superyacht, WP Marine can offer a simple solution for all boat-owners to "go green".

WP Advanced Marine Gas Oil contains Soltron technology with natural enzymes extracted from Marine Algae. The unique solution helps to combat the dreaded "Diesel Bug", keeps engines clean and reduces fuel consumption and emissions.
