OCEAN ISLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — A natural gas alternative for boats is coming to the Cape Fear region.
“Blue Gas Marine” is partnering with Jimmy’s Marine in Ocean Isle beach to sell and install natural gas systems in boats.
“Blue Gas Marine” President Miguel Guerreiro says the system decreases fuel cost by 70 percent and that it reduces air and water pollution.
“When you run it on your boat all the smoke disappears,” said Guerreiro. “Zero particulate matter emissions. Also no exhaust odors so it makes it very enjoyable to spend the day out on the water.”
This system price starts at $4,000 and goes up depending on how many tanks are needed and how big the boat is.
Tom’s Marine at Carolina Beach is also a Blue Gas Marine natural gas retailer.
