Rating Scheme

Clearwater Rating addresses a need in the leisure marine market for an objective, independent assessment of the environmental credentials of a boat or superyacht.

The Clearwater Rating system has been carefully researched to take into account environmental legislation and realistically incorporated best practice. It enables a manufacturer or owner to work though clearly defined steps that examine the impact of a leisure vessel upon air and water quality, energy consumption, noise pollution, seabed, foreshore, wildlife and global resources.

The Gold Standard is possible only for leisure yachts and powered motor vessels at the very cutting edge of the boating industry’s environmental best practice. If your boat has a Clearwater Gold Standard Rating, you’ll know it is among the leading boats globally in terms of environmental impact.

Silver Award 1 to 3 stars

Sailing yachts, power boats and superyachts that achieve the Clearwater Rating Silver Award are likely to be boats constructed of materials that are kinder to the environment with clean burning internal combustion engines, or FRP hybrids. They will have onboard systems that enable them to be operated in a way that is very sensitive to the environment. The Silver Award is offered in three star gradings.

Bronze Award 1 to 3 stars

The Clearwater Rating Bronze Award recognises leisure sailing yachts, motor vessels and superyachts that are likely to be relatively conventional in terms of construction and power, but consider the environment with respect to optimisation of systems, coatings and operations. The Bronze Award is offered in three star gradings, with three being the highest.

About the Clearwater Rating scheme

A Clearwater Rating represents a simply understood measure of the environmental cleanliness of a boat or superyacht. It’s a similar approach to commonly seen ratings viewed by consumers of electrical domestic equipment, house purchasers and car buyers when making informed decisions about their personal environmental footprint.

To obtain a Clearwater Rating we provide a self-assessment calculator, on which you work through a series of logical questions with help screens. When completed, your responses are assessed by us and a rating is issued.

A Clearwater Rating provides:

  • a boatbuilder with an unbiased and standardised measure of the environmental credentials of its products
  • an owner with benchmarks for the current and future impact of his or her leisure vessel, plus a basis to apply environmental best practice in day-to-day operations
  • everyone with confirmation of the cleanliness of a boat or superyacht, whether purchasing, buying, hiring or chartering.
