Van Tol commented, “It is the first time naval architects, interior and exterior yacht designers are going to structurally collaborate on the international level, which is an important step in itself. This task force will be solely focused on sustainability, and will be organised through the Water Revolution Foundation. We’ve set up task force values to ensure active and equal participation, with concrete output. That is not only in the spirit of the Water Revolution Foundation, also necessary to make the steps needed towards a sustainable industry.”
