Yamaha commissions new Seabin on-water services boat

YAMAHA Motor Australia has taken their partnership with Seabin to the next level with the official handover of the new Yamaha powered Seabin boat.

This component of Yamaha Motor Australia’s investment in Seabin’s 100 Smarter Cities by 2050 project in Sydney, will allow Seabin to more effectively access the Seabin units deployed around the harbour, expand operations and amplify impact.

Yamaha’s partnership with Seabin began in late 2021 with both organisations coming together to fulfill their mutual passion for protecting and restoring the marine environment. The Seabin 100 Smarter Cities By 2050 Program, Sydney is the first of its kind in Australia and aims to clean the Harbour whilst also analysing the collected waste to identify trends and commonalities that can be used to make fundamental changes to the way we interact with our waterways.

The addition of a boat to Seabin’s operations, opens up many new possibilities in terms of Seabin placement, operation and maintenance. It also gives the team at Seabin a new physical connection to the harbour they are working so hard to protect and improve.

The smooth handling Stessco Albacore was selected for the project. The 6 metre boat was purpose built and customised for Seabin at Stessco’s factory in Brisbane.

The boat is powered by a Yamaha F150 engine, delivering the best combination of power and fuel efficiently in a boat this size.

“We’re extremely proud to support Seabin’s Smart City Program in Sydney and we’re thrilled to be able to get them on the water”, said Grant Binskin, head of marketing Yamaha Motor Australia.

“I believe this boat is going to be an extremely valuable addition to their operations.”
