The Guardian S Class is the world first carbon neutral Speed Boat. A Mercedes Benz Blue-Hybrid Tender thet demonstrates to the boating industry how it can reduce "global warming pollution" by 250 million metric tons per year. The all carbon fibre Guardian is a 45 knot Solar Hybrid Vessel powered by an EPA car regulated Mercedes Benz Bluetec engine coupled to a Carbon-Grobbauteile electric motor. When combined with other currently available technology her fuel consumption and GHG emissions are 50 to 100% lower than any competitive speed boat ever built. The Guardian's Lithium ion UPS provides a Zero Carbon cruising range of up to 50nm. While her Plug-in SunPower array generates enough free energy to motor Carbon Neutral for up to 1,000nm.

Richard Sauter head of design commented "Taking advantage of existing advances in Green Technology the Guardian S Class leads the way in attacking one of the major causes of global warming and in doing so lays the foundation for the only marketing force likely to revitalize the boating industry in the face of ever increasing fuel prices, While many look to revitalizing inland waterways, doing so without regulating the inevitable increase in pollution that will come as a result, wont benefit the related communities. By employing dry catylitic exhaust systems Solar Hybrid power boats are activrly protecting rather than contaminating marine bio-system."

The EPA estimates that registered recreational boats in the USA produce a staggering 330 million metric tons of CO2 per year. Carbon Neutral power boats that follow the Guadian's example can reduce that figure by on average 75%, thereby reducing "global warming pollution" by 250 million metric tons per year.
