Did you know about Polynesia ?

French Polynesia is a vast area consisting of five archipelagos in the southern Pacific Ocean, each with a unique and authentic Polynesian identity. It offers a unique and enriching experience with turquoise lagoons and incredible underwater life. 


What about green initiatives?

In terms of green initiatives, there are several innovations and initiatives in place, such as the preservation of the environment and biodiversity in exclusive resorts, the protection and replantation of corals in lagoons, and the use of the ocean’s depths to cool hospital air conditioning systems. There is also an increasing number of hybrid vehicles and 100% electric scooters on the market in Tahiti, and there are even proposals for the installation of solar panels on some islands.

Several associations have been created for the protection of corals, the replanting of corals in lagoons, and the study of marine biodiversity (usually in partnership with the University of French Polynesia).

Systems are being put in place to use the depths of the sea to cool the air conditioning systems of hospitals in Tahiti, thus enabling ecological and sustainable development (see article).

More and more projects are being presented in public, such as the recent installation of solar panels on certain islands ! (see article

Electric Motor: The major prepares for a strong transition

The electric turn of yachting is becoming clearer. The major players in marine motorization are taking action so as not to let the market escape them.

Lanéva is proud to have valiantly started this shift. Realize every day that the trend is accelerating for a more sustainable world is a real satisfaction !

“Avalanche of announcements on the electric boat

The month of January marked a boost in the unveiling of the strategies of the major engine manufacturers around the electric boat. We have seen Volvo Penta join forces with Bénéteau for a new generation 33-foot hybrid boat. On the outboard engine side, Mercury Marine has launched its range of small horsepower Avator transportable engines on the European market with great fanfare. More discreetly, Honda Marine exhibited on the Boot Dusseldorf a concept of a small electric motor based on its batteries for 2 wheels. Finally, on the occasion of its strategic plan, Suzuki has set 2024 as the release date for its first electric outboard. Formerly reserved for specialized players and dominated by Torqeedo and ePropulsion, the marine engine market is experiencing a turning point.

No market without boats

But all these engines were not very present on the original equipment boats. Again, the shift is underway. We have seen major manufacturers exhibiting their electric models, mainly in sailing, but also in dayboats. The arrival of electric boats in the fleet of major rental companies should also reassure boaters about their ability to withstand intensive use.

The coming months and years will be exciting to observe the recomposition of the motorization market for pleasure boats.”

Lanéva Retrofit supported by the Government of Monaco

As part of the launch of its new branch, and in particular the first retrofit project of a vintage Riva, Lanéva benefits from the support of the Mission for Energy Transition of the Prince’s government. 

Under the impetus of H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince, the Prince’s Government is pursuing a committed energy transition policy which should reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030 compared to 1990. As part of the recovery due to the COVID19 crisis, the Monegasque government is adding a new axis to its Green Fund. The purpose of this Fund is to support any Monegasque company that carries out a project contributing to the energy transition. This boat retrofit project is financially supported by the Prince’s Government via the team of the Mission for Energy Transition (MTE) which leads this Green Fund. 

The project 

The conversion of a vintage Riva boat to 100% electric propulsion.  Originally equipped with a 177 HP Chrysler V8 engine, the Riva Ariston had several lives before becoming a 100% electric boat.  The operation consisted in removing this engine, the associated supports and all the equipment related to the heat engine.

The engineering developed for this project has made it possible to expand the range of vintage Riva boats which will soon be electrified. All models are affected.  It is therefore not just a project but a sector that has been launched in Monaco thanks to the continued support of the Government.

The global vision of retrofitting by Lanéva

→ A bespoke electric powertrain for classic and premium boats

→ The retrofit of the most famous classic boats in the world

→ An electric powertrain weighing the same weight than the original combustion engine

→ A reversible process with storage of engines and original equipment

→ An Autonomy responding to the use of these boats sailing mainly on closed water bodies

→ The combination of the convenience of an electric vehicle and the experience of iconic classic boats

→ Allows users to continue discovering their favorite boats without being affected by regulations

→ A digital interface for real-time performance monitoring via a dedicated application

What benefits for Monaco ?

→ The first project to convert a boat to electric in the Principality

→ An impactful message for sustainable yachting in the Principality

→ A strong alliance between heritage, quality of materials, innovation and sustainable development

→ The birth of the economic sector of boat retrofit “Made in Monaco”

→ A key communication vector for the development and support of ever more sustainable and innovative mobility in Monaco.

Last but not least, François Richard, Co-founder and CEO of Lanéva is also Ambassador of the Mission for the Energy Transition (MTE) of the Prince’s Government of Monaco. Thanks to this, the whole team is committed to the promotion of best environmental practices in Monaco and elsewhere.

Lanéva Boats receives its Solar Impulse Label by Bertrand Piccard and H.S.H. Prince Albert II

During the 16th edition of EVER Monaco, which took place on May 5, 6 and 7, Lanéva Boats confirmed its presence in the Start Up village and unveiled its new 100% electric boat VESPER. The Ever Monaco Show, a pioneer of events dedicated to sustainable mobility and sustainable energies in the Principality, was an opportunity for Laneva Boats to confirm its commitments, particularly with the Solar Impulse Foundation.


Lanéva Boats was awarded the Solar Impulse Foundation Label on Thursday. Bertrand Piccard created this label as part of his “1000 Solutions for the Planet”. This program is intended to promote innovations that are both profitable and virtuous for the environment. It was an honor to receive the Solar Impulse Label, in person, delivered by Bertrand Piccard and H.S.H. Prince Albert II.

Lanéva launches the first luxury 100% electric aquatic service in Venice

The 100% electric boat Lanéva Vesper 001 joined the fleet of the Venetian operator Blitz Exclusive for the 2022 season.
Moored in front of the prestigious Hotel St Régis, the ambition of our brand is to meet the needs of Venetians, hotels and tourists by offering greener mobility in order to preserve the city of the Doges.
We are honored to have recently welcomed on board the Italian Minister of Tourism to discover the comfort of navigation without noise and odor.

Immerse yourself in Venice ! 

Lanéva has joined EOPSA. Check what this is !

It is clear that the growth of electric boats brings with it an increasing demand for the availability of shore power. It has become a key element and a necessity to the growth of the industry.

We know that the ports have been wondering (and starting to equip themselves) for several years on the quayside supply of cruise ships in order to fight against the major sources of pollution when the ships, once at the quay, have no no other choice but to turn on their generators to keep the systems up to speed. 

The pleasure boating sector, although small in volume compared to maritime transport, must also be considered by stakeholders: ports, authorities, governments. It is in this context that the EOPSA association was created. EOPSA stands for European Onshore Power Supply Association. 

As its founder Roland Teixeira explained in a recent article published in “Le Journal de la Marine Marchande“: “EOPSA’s objective is first and foremost to bring the various stakeholders around the table. The idea is also to create a knowledge base on all the issues of quayside electrification. By generating resources, we promote innovation. It is also about being a player of influence with institutions and regulators to help bring about global standards. Over time, pilot projects have arisen but little attention has been paid to standards and reciprocity. In other words, more than 200 units of shore side power have been installed, but only a few operators benefit from it. Dockside electrification is only one solution among others, but the technology is already in place and its impact on pollution reduction is immediate.”

To date, EOPSA can be proud to count among its members Schneider, ENECO, Heerema, Cable Connectivity group, Wabtec, Shore Link, Cavotec, Bloom Energy and Ville de Cherbourg.

Roland invited us to our CEO, François Richard, to become an expert at EOPSA. Through this, we bring our perspective on our industry and the issues of recharging our 100% electric boats in Monaco but also in all areas conducive to the development of 100% electric pleasure boats.

Roland was CEO of General Electric Benelux and uses his experience, expertise and network to make EOPSA a success. We are very proud to be part of this adventure with him.

At our industry level, the development of charging points for electric pleasure boats is a must for the adoption of such vehicles by the market. There are different approaches to that : the easiest way is to improve the AC capacity in ports where electric boats are coming into the landscape. Today, you can charge your Lanéva in 2,5 hours, just enough time to enjoy a nice lunch by the sea. 

On the other hand, superchargers for boats are also meant to be the future of our sector and some ports, especially in the Mediterranean Sea (Monaco, Cannes, Saint-Tropez) are already equipped with those and allow for DC charging. 

History is on the move for the electrification of marinas!
