Ethanol and biodiesel fuel blends are capable of attracting up to 300 times the moisture of regular petroleum-based fuels, and once that fuel starts to break down it can gunk up your boat’s engine before you know it. Enter the E-Valve, a device designed to stop fuel contamination before it starts causing you problems. The unit monitors your fuel tank by allowing air to freely exit the fuel vent line when refueling and by sealing the fuel system from moisture when the boat is idle. The device is made from corrosion-resistant marine materials and is compliant with ABYC, NMMA, and USCG standards.
To showcase its Prestige line of motoryachts and express cruisers, French boatbuilder Jeanneau welcomes select guests to its impressive factory in Les Herbiers in western France. Prospective boat buyers, dealers, and a few lucky journalists got a glimpse of the entire boatbuilding process from the design and engineering studios to the yard where the boats are loaded for truck delivery. Oh and there was a really nice lunch with a little champagne as well!
