GoBoat, an innovative start-up which launched its Kebony-clad picnic boats in Copenhagen in May this year, has been commended at Denmark’s prestigious Ivækst Awards.
The solar-powered range of picnic boats and its terminal were dreamt up by the 3 Danish entrepreneurs Carl Kai Rand, Kasper Eich-Romme and Anders Mørck. The project was designed with nature and sustainability considerations at its core and strived to create a maritime oasis in the heart of Denmark’s capital city. Kebony’s sustainably treated timber cladding lent the project a refined aesthetic that was in keeping with the clean, natural appearance of the dock and boats in addition to upholding GoBoat’s sustainability considerations.
The award aims to promote and nurture innovation in business in Danish companies by focusing on inspiring stories of successful businesses and the enthusiasm of their pioneering founders. By winning the award GoBoat has been recognised for its entrepreneurialism and idealism.
Kasper Eich-Romme, cofounder of GoBoat, commented: “The reception of this award is a truly humbling experience for us and serves to recognise all the hard work we have put into brining our vision to life. Technology, sustainability and innovation have been integral to the execution of this project and Kebony’s beautiful wood embodies all of these qualities.”
Adrian Pye, International Sales Director at Kebony said: “We are very pleased for GoBoat as this award represents a significant achievement for the company. We look forward to continuing to work with companies who lead through innovation and which are committed to sustainability and pioneering design.”
